Mr Gum is a truly nasty old man. He’s absolutely grimsters. But this book is not just about him. There is also a little girl called Polly, an evil butcher, heroes and sweets and stuff, and Jake the dog, who must be saved from terrible, terrible evil. The hit comedy which has taken the world by storm brings together a wonderfully horrible villain, a delightfully naive heroine, and heaps of cliffhanging tension. Everyone says Mr Gum is the funniest thing since Roald Dahl – so don’t hang about! Let your pupils judge!
Winner of the Red House Children’s Book Award.
Praise for the Mr Gum series:
“Quirky, odd and deliciously funny.” Sophie Dahl
“Smooky palooki! This book is well brilliant! Andy Stanton is far too clever and funny and should be locked away in a very dark place that nobody can find.” Jeremy Strong
“A wickedly entertaining story.” Bookseller
