The Tom Gates series by Liz Pichon has enjoyed phenomenal success since the first book arrived in 2011. In this interview, Liz talks about the latest book in the series and her journey towards becoming a published author in spite of her dyslexia.

Find out how Lesley Glasgow, teacher at Hilton Primary School in Inverness, used Liz Pichon's hugely popular Tom Gates series as inspiration for a brilliant cross-curricular project.

These resources on the first two books in the hugely popular series celebrate all things Tom, with a focus on comics, doodling and music. But there's much more to Tom's world than his prowess as a musician and artist, and so you'll find activities to help you discover the natural world, some great modern languages tasks, and much more besides.
