Level Up with Tom Nicoll

Growing up, Tom Nicoll was obsessed with two things – books and video games.

Video Watch now: Level Up with Tom Nicoll

Tom Nicoll talks about his book, Level Up, video games and why he's still so bad at them!

Watch this video to hear more about Tom's Level Up book series which combines these two interests, why books and games are so important to him and why he thinks they're similar in many ways. Tom will also chat about why, after playing video games for so many years, he is still so bad at them!

Level Up tells the story of video game obsessed Flo, who gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself INSIDE her favourite game. Turns out, virtual reality isn't as much fun when it's not so virtual.
