Mr Gum Pack

Smooky palooki! It’s our biggest pack yet from our grim old enemy, Mr Gum! Can you stand so many doses of the mucky-bearded man who wants everyone to be as miserable as he is? Mr Gum is so horrible that children scream when they look at him and dogs run to hide under hedges. He is absolutely grimsters. And when he puts a curse on the town and does lots of other very nasty things besides, it’s lucky that a couple of handy heroes, Polly and Jake the dog, are around to give Mr Gum a taste of his own medicine! A bonkers bonanza of silly laughs from the Roald Dahl Funny Prize winning series!

“They are fantastic… brilliant books… I fully recommend them.” Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2

“Worryingly splendid.” Guardian
