This takes the form of Tom's battered homework diary - crammed with
his doodles and stories.
"No school for two whole weeks! (Yeah!) I can forget ALL about lessons
(and irritating things like Marcus Meldrew). And concentrate
on good stuff like: Inventing new ways to annoy my sister Delia.
(So many). Band practice for DOGZOMBIES (with my mate Derek). Watching
TV and eating caramel wafers. Eating caramel wafers and watching
Unfortunately a couple of small problems called the dentist and my
big weirdo sister, Delia, seem to be getting in the way of my BRILLIANT
plans . . ."
