“This is weird, wacky and one in a million: a cross between Roald Dahl and Monty Python. Mr Gum is a truly nasty old man. He's absolutely grimsters. But these books aren’t just about him. There's also a little girl called Polly, an evil butcher, heroes and sweets and stuff, and Jake the dog WHO MUST BE SAVED FROM TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE EVIL.”

Andy Stanton’s Mr Gum books have won numerous prizes including the Red House Children’s Book Award, 2 Blue Peter book awards and the inaugural Roald Dahl Funny Prize Award.

The Mr Gum collection on Nintendo DS and DSi includes 6 books from Andy Stanton’s award winning range: You're a Bad Man Mr Gum!; Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire; Mr Gum and the Goblins; Mr Gum and the Power Crystals; Mr Gum And The Dancing Bear and What’s for Dinner Mr Gum?

Collect Mr Gum sound effect as you read! - there are 30 collectible Mr Gum sound effects that can be played from the sound board screen to entertain your friends. You can also collect items for Mr Gum’s messy room and unlock extra bonuses - collect items dropped throughout the books to make the biggest mess.
