You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum!

The baddest man since Mr Twit, with the beard to match. You just love to hate him. It’s the book that changed, well, books. No villain has ever been yuckier. No catchphrases have ever been funnier. Shabba me whiskers: it’s true! Meet Mr Gum: a totally nasty old man. (He’s absolutely grimsters.) But this book is not only about him. There is also a little girl called Polly, an evil butcher, heroes and sweets. Plus Jake the dog, who must be saved from terrible evil. And finally, dear reader, there’s YOU. Who must laugh very loud, at any cost.
