Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear

Horrible Mr Gum is back with another terrible tale for all you nibbleheads! “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!” Shabba me whiskers! It’s a chuckle bonanza!

    I have this book and recently used it for my school work. In it you will read about bears called Padlock, two terrifyingly villans, one little girl called Polly, a hot air balloon and Jonathan Ripples the fattest man in town! I would recommend these series of books for all ages.
