Publisher's Synopsis

Shabba me whiskers! It's that bestselling and award-winning first ever Mr Gum story, read by the author and with music and sound effects. A fantastic book for boys and girls aged 7-10 years old

'They're the funniest books … I can't recommend them enough' Stephen Mangan

'They are brilliant' Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2

'It's hilarious, it's brilliant…Stanton's the Gov'nor, the Boss' Danny Baker, BBC Radio London

Good evening. Mr Gum is a complete horror who hates children, animals, fun and corn on the cob. This book's all about him.

And an angry fairy who lives in his bathtub. And Jake the dog, and a little girl called Polly and an evil, stinky butcher all covered in guts. And there's heroes and sweets and adventures and EVERYTHING.

You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum! is the first in the internationally bestselling series by Andy Stanton, which has won everything from the Blue Peter Book Award (twice) to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Red House Children's Book Award. The books have been translated into over 25 languages worldwide, and have sold over 4 million copies.

"Good evening. This is Andy Stanton, professional children's author and part-time marshmallow. Hey, do you like hearing 'Mr Gum' read out loud by a complete idiot? Well, then, you're in luck, because - for your entertainment, amusement and annoyance - every single word of these audio books is spoken by ME! And not only that, but these recordings are absolutely JAM-PACKED with silly voices, weird sound effects and utterly ridiculous songs (sorry about my singing, by the way, it's appalling). So there you have it - what are you waiting for? GET LISTENING, YOU NIBBLEHEADS!"
