Tom Gates: Ten Tremendous Tales with Liz Pichon

Thursday 18 February, 10am

Join awardwinning author and illustrator Liz Pichon as she celebrates Tom Gates’ 10th Birthday! Since first popping up on our bookshelves in 2011, Tom Gates has been entertaining us with hilarious tales from his everyday life - school trips, band practices, annoying older sisters, embarrassing parents  - all handwritten in his diary and illustrated with amusing doodles. The series won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2011 and is now being made into a tv series for Sky.

The latest book in the series - Ten Tremendous Tales - is out on Thursday 18 February and we are delighted to be hosting a special launch day celebration with Liz. She'll read one of the new stories, tell you all about how she created Tom and his adventures, and show you how to doodle in the same way. Don't forget to bring paper and pencils!

You can pre-order the brand new book Ten Tremendous Tales at the special price of £10 (RRP £12.99) with your event ticket - you will be given the opportunity to add the book to your cart as part of the checkout process. All previous books in the series are available to purchase via our store.  

Tickets are £3 per household. This event is aimed at children age 7-11 and their families. 
 This is an online event and will be delivered via Zoom. You'll need to download the app and create a Zoom account before the session. The meeting link and joining instructions will be sent by email after booking.
