Synopsis

Mr Gum and the Goblins by Andy Stanton

Shabba me whiskers! This is barking bonkers! Well, that old roo-de-lally Mr Gum and the hideous Billy William the Third are once more mucking things up for everyone. They're a-schemin' and a-hatchin' an' making their bad plans up on Goblin Mountain. Can the brave travellers (the wise old man Friday O'Leary and the small girl Polly) make it past the Three Impossible Challenges of Goblin Mountain and save the town from a fate worse than something very bad indeed? In an epic tale of courage, valour and plain idiocy only one thing is sure: the truth is a lemon meringue! Mr Gum is back in a third hilarious story, read by Andy Stanton and with music and sound effects.
