Product description

Smooky palooki! Mr Gum’s back! But what’s he up to this time? Oh, dreadful things, my friends; dreadful things indeed. It seems he’s found himself a brand new treat – rancid kebabs dripping with dirty grey sauce. And he just can’t get enough of them. He’s gotta have more! More! Less! I mean, more! But not everyone’s happy about Mr Gum’s new dinnertime arrangements, and soon the town of Lamonic Bibber is gearing up for war… Featuring a healthy eating message, here’s another cracking comedy from the series which won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2008!

“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

“A wickedly entertaining story” Bookseller

    I have this book and have read it lots of times. Now, I dont want to spoil it for you but lets just say that it includes a food war, a monkey, three heros and the main character (Mr Gum) and his friends. Now if you enjoy fantasic adventures about gingerbread men with electric muscles and food wars between the villans, then this is the book for you!
