Tom Gates: Excellent Excuses (and Other Good Stuff)
The airy handwriting-style font of this quasi-graphic novel is peppered throughout with tidy, energetic, thin-line ink doodles in a near-rebus fashion. Tom is a master of avoidance of all things unpleasant, and his twitchy friend, Norman, and hipster grandparents, aka the Fossils, add to the zaniness. Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid are a natural audience for this British import, the second in a series that will surely please budding Anglophiles; an illustrated glossary of Britishisms is included. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. Built on the Johns Hopkins University Campus.
Look Inside. Now Tom has plenty of time for the good stuff, like finding new ways so many! And finding a drummer. And landing a gig. Will Tom let a killer toothache and pesky overdue homework get in his way?
