Product Description

About the Author

Andy Stanton Andy Stanton lives in North London. He studied English at Oxford but they kicked him out. He has been a stand-up comedian, a film script reader, a cartoonist, an NHS lackey and lots of other things. He has many interests, but best of all he likes Radio 4, 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’.

The reviewers who have been critical of this book are not children and do not appear to have read it to a child. All of the 'Mr Gum' books are odd, weird, off the wall etc - but children absolutely adore them and my 3 (7, 10, 12) just cannot stop laughing when I read 'Mr Gum' to them (they are best read aloud, I think). Andy Stanton obviously knows just which buttons to press to make kids enjoy his writing - it is not really up to adults to make pompous statements about their suitability. And anything that gets children, and especially boys, to enjoy books HAS to have a 5 star review.

I've never written an Amazon review before, but Shabba me Whiskers that one star review made me so cross I had to write one right now. All of the Mr. Gum books are THE BEST, but this is the best of them all. I read it to my three children (aged 6,9 & 11) and all four of us were crying with laughter. I've recommended Mr. Gum to so many other parents, and all of them (and their kids) have loved the books. Funty stuff indeed.

As any parent may know, it can be tough making the transition from picture books to, er, books with less pictures. Don't know why, but this seems to be tougher still for boys, IMHO.

Which should bring us nicely to the Mr Gum books. Great Dickensian characters (disgusting Billy William The Third, fatso Jonathan Ripples, etc), bizarre turns of phrase ("like bad dreams into a postman's head") and very funny. I'd struggle to think of any other book where I've tripped up mid-sentence with a giggle or guffaw.

Highly recommended for your uninterested-in-books male offspring.

On the recommendation of a friend, I bought this for my nephew's eighth birthday - and I'm happy to say it was the hit of the day, not just amongst the kids but the adults too. Weird doesn't even come close to describing the plot of this book, but basically it involves a gingerbread man with electric muscles, who just happens to be a billionaire (told you it was weird). There are all sorts of funny asides but somehow the author keeps it all in check and produces a satisfying (but highly bonkers) conclusion. In short - buy this book for any kids you know and if you don't have any kids - buy it anyway. You will laugh a lot. Have just ordered the first one for my nephew, (but I will be reading it first, for sure).

I purchased this book for my 8 year old son who is not a big fan of reading. Well, this certainly did the trick. He didn't want to put it down and kept insisting on reading bits out to me. This is a wonderfully funny book that now has my son asking for other Mr Gum books as he is desperate to read more!!!

This is my eight year old son's review - "It is the funniest Mr Gum book I've read so far. All my favourites are here plus a new character; Alan Taylor the biscuit billionaire. The pictures are really funny and the top 10 of Mr Gum's favourite TV programs is so funny we laughed so much I got hiccups."

Myself, my husband and my rather bright son who is 5 have absolutely loved this book. It's probably taken us longer than average to read because my son has made me read Polly's long name every time Polly is mentioned! We have really enjoyed the small subtle bits of humour like the CHicken Barked, The really long chapter where "Mr Gum had a cup of Tea" and "The End" right at the beginning!! I have just ordered us the next 3 books and I can't wait!
