You're a Bad Man Mr Gum! Synopsis

Shabba me whiskers! It's one of those Mr Gum books by Andy Stanton. They're only the craziest, funnest most amazing books for children in the world. You're A Bad Man, Mr Gum! 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! is the first book in the internationally best-selling series by Andy Stanton, which has won everything from the Blue Peter Book Award (twice) the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Red House Children's Book Award. Praise for Mr Gum: 'Smooky palooki! This book is well brilliant!' - Jeremy Strong 'Worryingly splendid' - Guardian NOT FOR BORERS!

You're a Bad Man Mr Gum! Press Reviews

'My kids are reading the Mr Gum books. SO GREAT' - Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 DJ, TV presenter, author and comedienne '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, bestselling author of The-Hundred-A-Mile-An-Hour Dog 'They're properly funny, those books' - India Knight, bestselling author of My Life on a Plate 'Funny? You bet' - Guardian 'Andy Stanton accumulates silliness and jokes in an irresitible, laughter-inducing romp' - Sunday Times 'Raucous, revoltingly rambunctious and nose-snortingly funny' - Daily Mail 'It provoked long and painful belly laughs from my daughter who is eight' - Daily Telegraph 'As always, Stanton has a ball with dialogue, detail and devilish plot twists' - Scotsman 'They are fantastic...they are brilliant books for adults to read as well... I fully recommend them' - Zoe Ball live on BBC Radio 2 'A riotous read' - Sunday Express REVIEWS FOR THE VILLIAINOUSLY FUNNY MR GUM
