Tom Gates: overachiever? We never thought we’d see the day!
Tom’s latest goal is to earn a Star Pupil Badge. Marcus Mildrew has one, and Tom wants one so he can stay in the library at lunchtime and catch up on his comics. But it’s not going to be easy. To earn the badge, he’ll have to get his homework in on time . . . and as always, his life is full of distractions.
A new girl has moved in next door. A girl who hates him and keeps pulling faces. His grandparents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and Uncle Kevin thinks it would be a great idea to get a family portrait taken. Tom doesn’t. And as usual, Delia is being very grumpy.
How will Tom ever get his hands on that Star Pupil Badge?
