Planet Omar #1: Accidental Trouble Magnet

Love Tom Gates? Say hi to Omar. Doodles, dragons and Eid feasts! New home. New school. New bully. When Omar and his parents move house, our hero suddenly has all sorts of stuff to deal with. But it’s not all bad news. Eid is just around the corner, which means a feast (YAY) and presents (DOUBLE YAY). Well, as long as Omar can stay in Mum and Dad’s good books long enough. But all sorts of crazy things are happening – not just in real life, but in Omar’s livewire brain, which is always fizzing like a firework. Dragons, zombies, big laughs, delicious treats. Share them all with Omar in this book!
