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.
Features the following characters - Mr Gum, the gingerbread man named Alan Taylor who has electric muscles, as well as the little girl called Polly, the evil butcher called Billy William The Third, and the very wise man, Friday O'Leary, Jake the dog, and the angry fairy who lives in Mr Gum's bathtub and whacks him on the head with a frying-pan.
