Mr Gum is back and as nasty as ever in this second hilarious story, read by the author and with music and sound effects. A fantastic book for boys and girls aged 7-10 years old `Wickedly entertaining' The Bookseller `They're the funniest books ... I can't recommend them enough' Stephen Mangan `They are brilliant' Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2 `It's hilarious, it's brilliant...Stanton's the Gov'nor, the Boss.' - Danny Baker, BBC Radio London Good evening. OK, this book's a bit hard to describe. There's this gingerbread man with electric muscles, see? And he's rich as a mushroom, right? And Mr Gum and Billy William are planning to get the cash, yeah? And it's up to Polly to save the day. And there's a funfair and hot dogs, and Friday O'Leary shouts out some crazy stuff, and... hey, that wasn't so hard to describe after all! See ya! Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire is the second in the internationally bestselling series by Andy Stanton, which has won everything from the Blue Peter Book Award (twice) to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Red House Children's Book Award. The books have been translated into over 25 languages worldwide, and have sold over 4 million copies. Good evening. This is Andy Stanton, professional children's author and part-time marshmallow. Hey, do you like hearing `Mr Gum' read out loud by a complete idiot? Well, then, you're in luck, because - for your entertainment, amusement and annoyance - every single word of these audio books is spoken by ME! And not only that, but these recordings are absolutely JAM-PACKED with silly voices, weird sound effects and utterly ridiculous songs (sorry about my singing, by the way, it's appalling). So there you have it - what are you waiting for? GET LISTENING, YOU NIBBLEHEADS!

Andy Stanton lives in North London. He studied English at Oxford but they kicked him out. He has been a film script reader, a cartoonist, an NHS lackey and lots of other things. He has many interests, but best of all he likes cartoons, books and music (even jazz). One day he'd like to live in New York or Berlin or one of those places because he's got fantasies of bohemia. His favourite expression is `Please, sir', and his favourite word is `proletariat'.More About Andy Stanton
