    ‘Worryingly splendid’ - The Guardian

    Shabba me whiskers! It’s a bumper box set of stories featuring that old rotter, Mr Gum! And not just him – there’s also his trusty sidekick Billy William the Third, the little girl called Polly, the very wise man Friday O’Leary, the gingerbread man named Alan Taylor and the angry fairy who lives in Mr Gum’s bathtub. So step into the weird and wonderful world of Lamonic Bibber for some barking bonkers adventures!

    Includes: You’re A Bad Man, Mr Gum!; Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire, Mr Gum and the Goblins, Mr Gum and the Power Crystals, Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear; What’s for Dinner, Mr Gum?; Mr Gum and the Cherry Tree and Mr Gum and the Secret Hideout.

    Described as ‘the craziest, funnest, most amazing books for children in the world’, the internationally bestselling Mr Gum series has won everything from the Blue Peter Book Award (twice) to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Red House Children’s Book Award. These eight stories are read by author Andy Stanton, with specially recorded additional music and sound.

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 ‘Good evening’ and his favourite word is ‘captain’.
