Liz Pichon

Liz – congratulations on being shortlisted for the Red House Children’s Book Award! How do you feel about Tom’s growing success?

I couldn’t be more pleased! It’s amazing and I still get very excited when I see the book in a shop, library or anywhere really. The Red House Children’s Book Award is special because it’s voted for by children, so that means a lot too.

    Tom Gates

    Tom Gates is the my favourite book. I can read them within 2 days because they are really funny! I’ve read 9 books all ready. I started to read them in March now it’s April 23rd 2019. I think everyone should at least try to read these books. I am surprised that people in my school haven’t heard of it . I try to tell them that it’s really funny but I can’t because I always laugh about the books.

    The best books published

    Some people could say "Oooh, what a silly baby book." No it isn't; it's just a intermediate book with some FABULOUS doodles. I absolutely LOVE doodles. The books are SO fun to read. I would strongly recommend this book too anyone who likes funny stories. I finished Family, Friends and Furry Creatures in less than one day. Liz, these books are amazing . SO GO NOW & READ TOM GATES BOOKS

    Tom gates

    I absolutely love Tom Gates, it is really interesting and my class all like it too. We have a fan club and we like to doodle everything in your books. I am the best Monster drawer in my class and we sell the pictures and give the money to charities. Already we have raised quite a bit of money... I have read from The brilliant world of tom gates to A tiny bit lucky. Thankyou Liz Pichon, if i had a scale of awesomeness you would be so cool that you would break the end off. Thankyou Liz; you really are an author superhero you save me when I am not allowed to watch TV and your books are so amazing, I've already made my own one. One last time Liz Pichon amazing author please publish another book
