View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Mr. Gum may be the nastiest man on Earth, but he has the tidiest, greeniest, floweriest, gardeniest garden in the world that is, until a giant whopper of a dog named Jake destroys it in a fit of doggy joy. In retaliation, Mr. Gum hatches one of his astonishingly evil plots, involving some poisonous meat, and soon—very soon—things will get uglier than Mr. Gum in his underwear.

Unless, of course, Polly—a golden-haired local girl with hair like cat s daydream who is as good and true as Mr. Gum is wretched and smelly—can stymie Mr. Gum, save Jake, and prove to the world why the truth is lemon meringue . . .

"'Smooky palooki! This book is well brilliant! Andy Stanton is far too clever and funny and should be locked away in a very dark place that nobody can find.' (Jeremy Strong) 'Worryingly splendid' (Guardian)"

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!
