Review by Boolino

There's nothing more entertaining than a diary. We can draw whatever we like, criticize that person who drives us crazy or simply write down what happens to us. Well, this is what Liz Pichon has created; a diary in which Tom Gates, the main character in this series, talks about what happens from day to day in a very unique way. This little guy has a big imagination. He classifies the things that happen to him with a series of barometers.

Tom has a wild imagination, making this diary frenetic, packed with action and unpredictable adventures. It is brimming with fun drawings and different fonts. Every page is riddled with shapes and all sorts of stuff, hooking us in from the first page and making us laugh non-stop. Also, we'll learn how to do doodles with a string, cakes and a kite. There are tons of drawings and instructions. Even with its jocular tone, it still has a thing or two to teach us. For example, that despite all the time we spend having fun, we should always look at the homework barometer, because we have to do it no matter what, so responsibility is a part of life. What's more, children will be able to see the fun in not being glued to the television all day, because there are heaps of things to do if we put the park and our parent's company together. Success is guaranteed with this book, which won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. A must for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
