(REVIEWS FOR THE VILLIAINOUSLY FUNNY MR GUM)
About the Author
Andy Stanton studied English at Oxford but they kicked him out. Before becoming a children’s writer he was a film script reader, a market researcher, an NHS lackey, a part-time sparrow and a grape. Today he is best-known for the hilarious and much-loved Mr Gum books, which are published in 34 countries worldwide in over 30 languages. The series has won numerous awards, including the inaugural Roald Dahl Funny Prize, the Red House Children’s Book Award and two Blue Peter Book Awards.
Featuring a cast of weird and wonderful characters, the brilliantly anarchic Mr Gum adventures have become must-reads for children everywhere. Well, probably not in space - but everywhere else. In 2016, You’re A Bad Man, Mr Gum! celebrates its 10th anniversary and will be published as an Egmont Modern Classic.
Andy Stanton lives in North London. He has many interests, but best of all he likes books, comedy and music (even jazz). His favourite expression is ‘good evening’ and his favourite word is ‘captain’. So now you know!

Right from the start, Andy Stanton (who narrates), had my 4 children (aged 4 - 10) in hysterical laughter, not to mention myself and my 38 year old husband!
The author's passion & sense of humor are true genius to listen to.
Such an original style of writing, the story is an absolute joy.
In fact, when we reached our destination, we stayed in the car for an extra 15 minutes, just to listen to the end of the story!
