Before Tom the cat started watching TV, he did a lot of work. But now he is just watching TV trying things he sees on TV. The problem is he thinks the TV is a box with real people inside it. So whatever he sees people doing on TV he thinks he can do it himself. He doesn't want to play football because he would get hurt. Tom the TV Cat would wake up everyone and they would throw shoes and flowers at him.

Someone would like this book if they like TV. Someone would like this book if they like to try new things. For example he tried to fly one time. When Tom was singing he would wake up everyone and they would throw shoes and flowers at him. Tom doesn?t want to do football because he would get hurt. story reminds Ian about watching TV. The story reminds Dylan about when he does nothing but watch TV. Ian likes the book because he liked when Tom tried to fly.
