(REVIEWS FOR THE VILLIAINOUSLY FUNNY MR GUM)
Mr Gum is a truly nasty 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.See all Product description

As the title says, we moved onto these after Horrid Henry, Captain Underpants and Diary of a wimpy kid. The language is a little older than in those other books, and the humour is based around how it describes what’s happening. Younger children won’t understand this humour, so if you have a child whose reading level is above average, it still might not be appreciated.
I would compare it a little to Roald Dahl’s or David Walliam’s style, but much less ‘heavy’.
I won’t give any of the story away, because I think that spoils it, but when I found out more books had been published, I was very pleased.
Up until that he was really enjoying the story though. Maybe not for the sensitive animal lover ;)
