Tom Gates: Excellent Excuses (and Other Good Stuff)
author/illustrator: L. Pichon
No school for two whole weeks! Now Tom has plenty of time for the good stuff, like finding new ways (so many!) to annoy his big sister, Delia. Or band practice for Dogzombies in his best friend Derek’s garage. All that stands between this band and rock greatness is, well, a song (besides “Delia’s a Weirdo”). And finding a drummer. And landing a gig. Will Tom let a killer toothache and pesky overdue homework get in his way?
