Mr Gum and the Secret Hideout Reviews

"* '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 'When I read these books aloud, my teen daughters aged 18 and 16 insist on sitting in and listening too. Usually ending up in tears of laughter. The whole family loves Mr Gum - try it, you won't be disappointed.' Bookcrossing Forum 'Thank you, thank you Andy Stanton for adding another book to the amazing tales of Mr Gum.' School Librarian Journal 'They are fantastic...they are brilliant books for adults to read as well...I fully recommend them.' Zoe Ball live on BBC Radio 2"
