The Mr Gum books by Andy Stanton are outright hilarious. What more is there to say?
With scratchy, energetic illustrations by David Tazzyman, and a truly comedic drive, I think there’s very little that beats these for laugh-out-loud silliness.
I excitedly read a passage from the first book to a load of adults at a Christmas party once, as I thought it was so funny. Sure, I got a few funny looks for it, but at least I practise what I preach!
