No school for two whole weeks! (Yeah!) I can concentrate on good stuff like: band practice for DOGZOMBIES (with my mate Derek). Watching TV and eating caramel wafers. Excellent. Unfortunately a couple of small problems called the dentist and my big weirdo sister, Delia, seem to be getting in the way of my BRILLIANT plans . . .

No school for two whole weeks! Now Tom has plenty of time for the good stuff, like finding new ways (so many!) to annoy his big sister, Delia. Or watching TV and eating caramel candy. Or most important, band practice for DOGZOMBIES in his best friend Derek’s garage (while not encouraging Derek’s ’60s-music-crazed dad). All that stands between this band and rock greatness is, well, a song (besides "Delia’s a Weirdo"). And finding a drummer. And landing a gig. Will Tom let a killer toothache and pesky overdue homework get in his way?

Back to school, but it's not all bad. Sports Day, the school fair, and Tom's birthday are all coming up. And even better, his awful big sister Delia won't be at any of those events! On the downside, Granny Mavis is threatening to make his birthday cake. But on the other hand, Mr. Keen has asked Dogzombies to perform in front of the whole school! YEAH! Maybe they can even play at the school dance, too. How can the term turn out any less than seriously amazing?
