The Lovereading4Kids comment

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. This special edition comes with lots of stickers, a brand new bonus story and an exclusive introduction from the author.

Winner of the Blue Peter Prize 2007 'Most Fun Story with Pictures.' Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2007 and Joint winner of the Richard and Judy "Developing" 7+ category.

Synopsis

You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum! by Andy Stanton

Bigger, badder and more bonkers than ever before. This is a fantastic new gift edition of the first book in Andy Stanton's stupendous, all-conquering Mr Gum series. Good evening. Mr Gum is a complete horror who hates children, animals, fun and corn on the cob. This book's all about him. And an angry fairy who lives in his bathtub. And Jake the dog, and a little girl called Polly and an evil, stinky butcher all covered in guts. And there's heroes and sweets and adventures and EVERYTHING.

Reviews

'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.'

'Worryingly splendid'

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
