Tom Gates Yes! NO (Maybe...) by L. Pichon
Published by Scholastic Australia
This story is about a boy named Tom Gates and his family. His Dad is plain weird, His Mum is mum and his sister Delia is well, practically blind. First Tom has a business day at school, and Dad sold Mum’s cat brooch. A business day at school turns out to be great. He’s invited to the park, but The Fossils take him shopping, and he comes back at the end of the book with an epic result.
My favourite part was when Tom’s dad got the cat brooches eyes fixed, so they weren't wonky. Later, the same day when Tom was watching TV a man on a ad said the cat brooch was worth more with the eyes wonky. How many catastrophes can happen in one day?
I rate this 5 stars out of 5 stars because it repeats your life as a story.
This twister tale leads you right into the problem of the book. I recommend it for 7-12-year-olds.
