Summary
Things are looking up for Tom Gates. The school dance is coming up, and his birthday, too! What could possibly put him in a bad mood? Well, the words math lesson, for one thing. And that annoying twit Marcus Meldrew at school. And Granny Mavis threatening to bake Tom's birthday cake (carrots!). And the fact that nobody seems to be noticing the long list of birthday presents Tom has prominently displayed. Worst of all, can it be true that Tom's dad has volunteered to deejay the school dance wearing the wacky costume from his new job?

Review
Grades 3-6 The inimitable, biscuit-loving, music-playing, ever-doodling Tom Gates is back, and he is about to have a birthday. Awesome! School work, on the other hand, remains a drag, and Tom does his best to complete it with minimal effort. He also accidentally starts a trend of wearing tiny uniform sweaters (“shrink knit”) after throwing his in the dryer. A middle-school dance lurks on the horizon, for which Tom’s band, DogZombies, is supposed to play, and there’s a chance his dad will be the DJ (the shame!). Fans won’t be disappointed in this third installment, which is packed to the gills with humor and Tom’s trademark doodles. -- Smith, Julia (Reviewed 10-15-2015) (Booklist, vol 112, number 4)
