Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award 2011: Most Fun Story with Pictures*
Hilarious, delightful and utterly, utterly absurd, prize-winning Andy Stanton’s truly revolting hero Mr Gum and the extraordinary town of Lamonic Bibber where he lives are back in this riotous new adventure brought about by a little bit of Spring fever. Touched by the fever, Old Granny O’Leary leads the school children into the Forest of Runtus and after that there is no predicting what might happen next!

Mr Gum and the Cherry Tree by Andy Stanton
Follow Polly and Friday on an adventure on the streets of Lamonic Bibber, and watch out for that dastardly villain, Mr Gum, not to mention his sidekick, Billy William.
'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.
'A wickedly entertaining story
'When I read these books aloud, my teen daughters aged 18 and 16 insist on sitting in and listening too. Usually ending up in tears of laughter. The whole family loves Mr Gum - try it, you won't be disappointed.'
'Thank you, thank you Andy Stanton for adding another book to the amazing tales of Mr Gum.'
'They are fantastic...they are brilliant books for adults to read as well...I fully recommend them.'
Zoe Ball live on BBC Radio 2
