Tom's doing everything possible to stay out of trouble but somehow he's got THREE sad faces on the school achievement chart! And getting another sad face means he can’t go on the SCHOOL TRIP! Moany Marcus Meldrew is making things worse and now Tom's annoyed his grumpy sister Delia. Can his best friend Derek help? Will Rooster the dog stop eating his homework?

Brought to you by the award-winning producers of Horrible Histories and Gangsta Granny, this show is pure fun for the whole family, whether you're a lover of the books or new to Tom Gates and his friends.
