You’re A Bad Man Mr Gum
Mr Gum is a truly bad old man. He’s absolutely grimsters. But this book is not just about him. There is also a little girl called Polly, an evil butcher, heroes and sweets and stuff, and Jake the dog, who must be saved from terrible, terrible evil.
Mr Gum and The Biscuit Billionaire
Mr. Gum is back and he’s as bad as ever! Read this book and meet a gingerbread man named Alan Taylor who has electric muscles! Plus, all our favourite characters are back: the little girl called Polly, the evil butcher called Billy William The Third, and the very wise man, Friday O’Leary. And, who could forget loveable Jake the dog, or the angry fairy who lives in Mr. Gum’s bathtub and whacks him on the head with a frying-pan?
Mr Gum and The Goblins
Well, that old roo-de-lally Mr Gum and the hideous Billy William the Third are once more mucking things up for everyone. They’re a-schemin’ and a-hatchin’ an’ making their bad plans up on Goblin Mountain. Can the wise old man Friday O’Leary and the small girl Polly make it past the Three Impossible Challenges of Goblin Mountain and save the town from a fate worse than something very bad indeed? In an epic tale of courage, valour and plain idiocy only one thing is sure: The truth is a lemon meringue!
Mr Gum and The Power Crystals
Can it really be true that there’s an ancient curse on the town of Lamonic Bibber? Mr Gum and his trusty sidekick Billy William the Third have something to do with it. But…our favourite heroes Polly and Friday and the gingerbread biscuit Alan Taylor are determined to save the town. Hang on to your heads and prepare to chuckle like a chipmunk as you are whisked to the land of talking dogs, silly songs, Old Granny, and the best chase scene you’ve ever seen.
Mr Gum and The Dancing Bear
Mr Gum returns in the fifth shamelessly hilarious book…Good evening. Do you like bears called Padlock? Course you do. Do you like hot-air balloons? Course you do. Do you like tall sailing ships with mad sea captains, and horrifying old villains and words like ‘wab!’, ‘tungler’ and ‘kelp’? Course you do! Well, guess what, you lucky little nibbleheads? This book’s got all of those things - and a lot more besides. It’s a rollicker! It’s a frolicker! It’s a funtime sun-time yollicker! So what you waiting for? Get reading!
What’s for Dinner, Mr Gum?
Oh, dreadful things my friends, dreadful things indeed. It seems he’s found himself a brand new treat - rancid kebabs just dripping with dirty grey sauce. And he just can’t get enough of them. He’s gotta have more! But not everyone’s too happy about Mr Gum’s new dinnertime arrangements and soon the town of Lamonic Bibber is gearing up for war. Can Polly and her friends save the town from being torn apart? Will Mr Gum’s hunger ever be satisfied? And who on earth is Thora Gruntwinkle?
Mr Gum and the Cherry Tree
Follow Polly and Friday on another crazy adventure on the streets of Lamonic Bibber. And watch out for that dastardly villain, Mr Gum, not to mention his sidekick, Billy William. It’s barking bonkers. But don’t believe us, believe them.
Mr Gum and the Secret Hideout
Follow Polly and Friday on another crazy adventure on the streets of Lamonic Bibber. And watch out for that dastardly villain, Mr Gum, not to mention his sidekick, Billy William. But what could that fiend be up to this time? Could there be 8 ladies all called Pamela? Will Friday O’Leary have to wrestle a man-eating Octopus? Who knows? Either way, it’ll be barking bonkers. But don’t believe us, believe them…
Mr Gum in the Hound of Lamonic Bibber
Something dark and sinister stalks the streets of Lamonic Bibber. As a fog rolls in from the sea, carrying with it the unmistakeable whiff of pancakes and utter dread, an unearthly howl echoes through the cold midnight air. But who – or what – is at work here? Shabba me suspense-filled whiskers, this one will require some serious detective work!
