Product description

Shabba me whiskers! Can it really be true that there’s an ancient curse on the town of Lamonic Bibber? Yes, you guessed it. That old roo-de-lally Mr Gum and his trusty sidekick Billy William the Third are behind it all! All the same, our favourite heroes Polly and Friday, and gingerbread biscuit Alan Taylor are determined to save the town (sigh of relief). So hang on to your heads as you are whisked to the land of talking dogs, silly songs, Old Granny, and the best chase scene you’ve ever seen!

    Mr.Gum is a hilareous character! This time he’s messed up an old legend of a windmill. Will Polly and Friday stop him?

    I found this book quite repetitive and boring. I like quite a lot of the Mr gum books but this one was not for me. There are six chapters called “Polly goes to see Old Granny” that are exactly the same, this gets quite annoying!

    I would not recommend this book, gets 2 out of 5 from me

    I thouht it was funny because of some of the sayings and the names of the characters. it was a great book and the way they dressed in funny clothings in all the pictures.the name of the book ( mr gum and the power crystals) that made me wont to read it.
