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!
As midnight struck, the two robbers were racing away over the dark muddy fields in their hobnail boots, churning up great clods of earth in their wake and ruining the farmers’ crops. The biscuit tin gleamed in the thin moonlight as they threw it to and fro like a rugby ball. But it wasn’t rugby they were playing, it was the Game of Crime, and the score was:
Lamonic Bibber Robbers: One Billion
Heroes United: Nil
Oh, what a terrible, terrible night! The robbers dashed and their teeth gnashed and the rain lashed and the thunder crashed and the lightning flashed and the puddles splashed and the pigs in the fields went oinkety-oink. Yes, the pigs went oinkety-oink.
