Pichon, Liz Tom Gates Everything’s Amazing (Sort of), 404 pgs. Candlewick, 2012. $12.99 Content: G.
This book is about a boy who is going through school with teachers that have mustaches and amazing hearing. Tom has fun doodling what he wishes will happen to a kid named Marcus who is not nice. Tom is exited for the upcoming school dance, he wants to dance and eat the snacks. Tom and his best friend pull a trick on Marcus with some of the things Tom got for his birthday.
This book is good because the pictures looked cool and the characters were funny. I didn’t like this book because it was too much like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I also don’t like the parents' attitudes. Although it is 400 pages, there are a lot of pictures and it was a fast read.
