LoveReading View on Mr Gum And The Goblins

The third in this series of hugely popular and outrageously funny stories about Mr Gum. Mr Gum is an unusually bad man. This time he’s up on Goblin mountain hatching his nasty plans. How will anyone outwit him? As ever, the answer is unexpected. It’ll take a lemon meringue pie to do it.

Side-splittingly funny, wild and wacky and full of mischief, Mr Gum and his many friends get mixed up in trolls and witches and a lot else besides as they conquer the forces of evil. Are you brave enough?  This is the third Mr Gum and the first one; You’re a bad man Mr Gum won one of the major children’s book awards when it was published.  It’s a real feel good book for young readers (6-9 year olds are likely to be the core readers but we have testimonials from younger and older readers too) as it’s a book with lots of pages but the text is laid out amongst some hilarious illustrations in such a way that you turn the pages really quickly.

And a must for ALL Mr Gum fans - the Mr Gum Quiz book - FREE TO DOWNLOAD - and test your knowledge - click here  (but it's pretty big so it might take short while!)

Mr Gum And The Goblins Synopsis

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 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!
