This is weird, wacky and one in a million: a cross between Roald Dahl and Monty Python. Mr. Gum is back in this second hilarious book and he’s as nasty as ever! In fact, he’s absolutely grimsters. But this book’s not just about him. Read this book and you’ll meet a gingerbread man named Alan Taylor who has electric muscles! Plus, all our favourite characters are back: the little girl called Polly, the evil butcher called Billy William The Third, and the very wise man, Friday O’Leary.
And, who could forget loveable Jake the dog, or the angry fairy who lives in Mr. Gum’s bathtub and whacks him on the head with a frying-pan? This book will have you crying with laughter!
Like lightning, Mr Gum reached down and grabbed a heavy fishing net dripping with slime and dead lobsters. Running up the beach, he chucked it at Polly and before she knew what was happening she was down on the sands, buried under its filthy weight. Struggling against it was no good. It was just one of those nets you can't beat with struggling. 'Au revoir!' shouted Mr Gum as Monsieur Bellybutton started to row away. 'Au revoir,' replied Polly politely. 'I mean - Hey! Come back here you crimers!'
