Shabba me whiskers! It’s a bumper box set of stories featuring that old rotter Mr Gum! And not just him - there’s also his trusty sidekick Billy William the Third, the little girl called Polly, the very wise man Friday O’Leary, the gingerbread man named Alan Taylor and the angry fairy who lives in Mr Gum’s bathtub. So step into the weird and wonderful world of Lamonic Bibber for some barking bonkers adventures!

Described as ‘the craziest, funnest, most amazing books for children in the world’, the internationally best-selling Mr Gum series has won everything from the Blue Peter Book Award (twice) to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Red House Children’s Book Award. These eight stories are read by author Andy Stanton, with specially recorded additional music and sound.

Hilarious!

We loved the books so having the Audiobooks to listen to in the car has been brilliant. Narrated very engagingly by the author and exactly the book version (my kids would notice, they know the books word for word) with extra silly sound effects. It's such a great price to get all 8 books in one. Highly recommend for kids age 6/7 and above - and their parents, if you like silly jokes too!

Mr gum

Thought it was very hilarious lots of interesting characters and good storyline a very good voice tone to the storyteller and I particularly liked the first and the second story with me gum because of the angry fairy and Mr gum is a very bad and naughty man. So I would definitely recommend it to 10 and over years😀😂 But it can't be perfect !

Fabulous books

I can't read these books any more, I have to listen to them. The author's narration is the best, the only version worth listening to. We have listened to these over and over as a family in the car and they never get old. Ideal for any child age 6 or 7 up, I would say.

Bonkers!

Wonderfully random, totally bonkers and laugh out loud funny. I laughed as much as my 7 year old. The truth is a lemon meringue!
