7+. Best-selling Mr Gum now has a super-attractive new look. This bumper book with lovely big print and substantial illustrations is not only a great story of the outrageous events in Lamonic Bibber, it also has host of additional stickers of the favourite Lamonic Bibber characters. The perfect introduction to the very special world of Mr Gum as well as must-have for all his already passionate fans.

Mr Gum in 'the Hound of Lamonic Bibber' Bumper Book by Andy Stanton

Step once more into Lamonic Bibber my friends - if you dare. In the dead of night, when all the stars are sleeping and the moon's nipped off for a coffee, something dark and sinister stalks the streets of Lamonic Bibber. As a fog rolls in from the sea, carrying with it the unmistakable whiff of utter dread, an unearthly howl echoes through the cold midnight air. But who - or what - is at work here? Shabba me suspense-filled whiskers, this one will require some serious detective work.


'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

'Worryingly splendid' - The Guardian
