You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum! Synopsis

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.

You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum! Press 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.'
(Jeremy Strong)

'Worryingly splendid'
(Guardian)
