Summary

Follows the eccentric residents of a small town, including an obnoxious old man who tries to poison a popular dog.

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 book in the internationally best-selling series by Andy Stanton

NOTE : Winner of the Most Fun Story with Pictures category in the Blue Peter Children's Book Awards 2007 & Red House Children's Book Award for younger readers and overall winner 2007.
