I really liked this book because it was so funny! I like how it was told in Tom's view and was a bit like a diary. It is a fictional book and my favourite character was Derek because he was helpful and kind to Tom. My favourite part was when Marcus was only in his underpants when the fire alarm went off and Mrs Nap gave him a jumper to tie around his waist. Really funny! I would recommend this book to ages 6+ and to those who enjoy funny stories!

A brilliant book but sadly doesn't seem that long after reading. After reading Tom Gates, you kind of get a view of the characters for all the other books. I found this similar to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Each character had an important part in this book. DUDE3 reminded me of any other rock band I've seen. Tom Gates is seen as a child who wants everything to go good unless its her sister Delia. Although throughout the book you see Tom Gates doing many mistakes, like his hobby, the reader would think of him as nice but slightly desperate. A character who I liked but didn't see a lot of is Caretaker Stan. At the start, I saw Tom Gates more of a selfish person. Marcus was a V.I.P (Very Irritating Person) in the book. I was able to see how annoying he was through reading the first few pages he's in. A book I probably wouldn't recommend but I would keep and treasure - 4/5

It was absolutely amazing! I love Amy Porter, Tom's friend. I would recommend this book to people who think that weird books are awesome

Nurse Daisy Waltzer 02.08.2020

It was fiction. It is really funny. My favourite character was derek. It is not really about anything. It is about what Tom gates does becaus it is called “brilliant wold of ” Tom Gates. “ my favourite part of the book was when they made their band name up- Dog zombies! Yes I would recommend the book .

Don Grip Pudding-Basin 02.08.2020

I'm only going to do a review for the whole series. It is hilarious and Tom doesn't stop getting into trouble because of funny things that happen. I would recommend to anyone above 7.
