Tom Gates has an annoying older sister (groan), embarrassing parents, a cool band with his friend Derek, and a talent for getting into trouble and forgetting to turn in his homework. As voiced by actor Rupert Grint (known to moviegoers as Harry Potter's best friend, Ron Weasley) in this UK import, Tom is mischievous and confiding, full of boyish energy and enthusiasm (if not always common sense). In the audio production, copious sound effects take the place of the drawings in the print book, and the result is funny, silly, and charming. It's a great choice for middle-grade boys or reluctant readers, and fans who get hooked will be glad to know that there are more in the series.
