In August I entered a Tom Gates competition and guess what…I was a Runner-up and won the whole series, which is eleven books (I have seven). My favourite book, so far, is the seventh one “A Tiny bit lucky.” HOORAY!!!
This is a good book because it’s funny. It rhymes for effect and has brilliant pictures.
The alarm doesn’t go off, so Mum is late, loads of disasters happen like: “Why aren’t you dressed yet?”, “She hasn’t got time to do her make-up!”, “She’s got nothing to wear and she can’t do a thing with her hair!” When they’re nearly ready to go, she has to change a nappy! Half way down the road she realises she had no phone and no purse, she can’t find a parking space! It’s no longer a school run but a race!!!
The book follows Mum as she tries to get ready for the school run, with a surprise twist at the end.
This is my favourite picture in the book – My Mum NEVER looks like this 😉 :
Even though i’m a bit too old for this book now I still enjoyed it and I would recommend this book for EYFS and year 1 and 2.
I would rate this book 4 out of 5.
