The Lovereading comment:
Full of fun, madcap mayhem and crazy action, Mr Gum will I guarantee get the most reluctant reader reading. But rest assured, book lovers will love this special brand of humour too. This is the second Mr Gum book and it may be a little over 150 pages long but no page is the same; some have just a few words to a page, others no more than 10 or 12 lines and splattered throughout the book are some brilliant illustrations that will send you into fits of giggles in the unlikely event the text hasn’t!!! You don’t need to read the first one to devour this one but in case you want that one too, just click here.
