Mr Gum returns in the fifth shamelessly hilarious book...Good
evening. Do you like bears called Padlock? Course you do. Do you
like hot-air balloons? Course you do. Do you like tall sailing
ships with mad sea captains, and horrifying old villains and words
like 'wab!', 'tungler' and 'kelp'? COURSE
you do! Well, guess what, you lucky little nibbleheads? This
book's got all of those things - and a lot more besides.
It's a rollicker! It's a frolicker! It's a funtime
sun-time yollicker! So what you waiting for? Get reading!
Ausstattung/Bilder: 2008. 256 p. w. ill. by David Tazzyman.

"'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; 'Andy Stanton accumulates silliness and jokes in an irresistible, laughter-inducing romp' The Sunday Times; 'Worryingly splendid' Guardian; 'A riotous read' Sunday Express; 'Designed to tickle young funny bones' Glasgow Herald; 'Cranks up children's storytelling conventions to hilarious extremes' Jewish Chronicle."
Andy Stanton lives in North London. He studied English at Oxford but they kicked him out. He has been a stand-up comedian, a film script reader, a cartoonist, and an NHS lackey. He has many interests, but best of all he likes Radio 4, books and music (even jazz). One day he'd like to live in New York or Berlin because he's got fantasies of bohemia. His favourite expression is 'This is what it sounds like when doves cry' and his favourite word is 'whippersnapper'. His first book You're A Bad Man, Mr Gum! won the Red House Children's Book Award and the Blue Peter Award for Most Fun Book With Pictures. David Tazzyman lives in South London with his girlfriend, Melanie, and their son, Stanley. He grew up in Leicester, studied illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University and then travelled around Asia for three years before moving to London in 1997. He likes football, cricket, biscuits, music and drawing. He dislikes celery.
