The Lovereading comment:
Winner of the Blue Peter Prize 2007 'Most Fun Story with Pictures.'Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2007. Joint winner of the Richard and Judy "Developing" 7+ category. What the judges’ said:‘an illogical, surreal romp with some great one-liners and the kind of book that will make readers out of children that never knew they wanted to read’ Mr Gum may well be a ‘bad man’ but rest assured the author Mr Stanton is a ‘funny man’. There’s a wonderful sense of humour throughout. Fans of Roald Dahl will love it.

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.
