Product Description

Smooky palooki! Mr Gum’s back! But what’s he up to this time? Oh, dreadful things, my friends; dreadful things indeed. It seems he’s found himself a brand new treat – rancid kebabs dripping with dirty grey sauce. And he just can’t get enough of them. He’s gotta have more! More! Less! I mean, more! But not everyone is happy about Mr Gum’s new dinnertime arrangements, and soon the town of Lamonic Bibber is gearing up for war… Tighten your belts for this cracking comedy from a Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner!

“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

“A wickedly entertaining story.” Bookseller

Andy Stanton is author of the fantastically funny Mr Gum books.

Andy 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 expressions are ‘Good evening’ and ‘What on earth is THAT?!’ and his favourite word is ‘werewolf’.

    I have this book and have read it lots of times. Now, I dont want to spoil it for you but lets just say that it includes a food war, a monkey, three heros and the main character (Mr Gum) and his friends. Now if you enjoy fantasic adventures about gingerbread men with electric muscles and food wars between the villans, then this is the book for you!
