Review:

'My kids are reading the Mr Gum books. SO GREAT' - Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 DJ, TV presenter, author and comedienne

'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, bestselling author of The-Hundred-A-Mile-An-Hour Dog

'They're properly funny, those books' - India Knight, bestselling author of My Life on a Plate

'Funny? You bet' - Guardian

'Andy Stanton accumulates silliness and jokes in an irresitible, laughter-inducing romp' - Sunday Times

'Raucous, revoltingly rambunctious and nose-snortingly funny' - Daily Mail

'It provoked long and painful belly laughs from my daughter who is eight' - Daily Telegraph

'As always, Stanton has a ball with dialogue, detail and devilish plot twists' - Scotsman

'They are fantastic...they are brilliant books for adults to read as well... I fully recommend them' - Zoe Ball live on BBC Radio 2

'A riotous read' - Sunday Express

 

(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!
