The title character surprised me by acting a lot like the British Dennis the Menace. He is quite mean to his sister and also a particular classmate, and evades homework and other responsibilities whenever possible. Kinda like if "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" was all about the mean older brother.

Reading Level: grade 4. Interest Level: ages 9-12. Winner of the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Tom Gates is tailor made for readers who just can’t get enough of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. 10 year-old Tom lives to annoy his sister, avoid his homework, and impress his classmate, Amy Porter. He also keeps an exercise book full of doodles and thoughts on these and any other subject that springs to mind, including Mrs. Worthington’s moustache.
