Kate Winslet reads the first riotously funny book in the Mr Gum series by Andy Stanton. Good evening. Mr Gum is a complete horror who hates children, animals, fun, and corn on the cob. This book's all about him. And an angry fairy who lives in his bathtub. And Jake the dog, and a little girl called Polly and an evil, stinky butcher all covered in guts. And there's heroes and sweets and adventures and everything.

Winner of the Red House Children's Book Award.

    " Read this in manuscript on the plane back from Frankfurt and laughed so loudly and so often that I was asked to be quiet by the attendants. As if Monty Python wrote books for nine-year-olds. Just so damned funny. "

    " ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER!!!! Not only is it hilariously self-deprecating, but it is paced well and its a darn good plot. "

    " I picked this book up from the library as a bit of fun. I've heard many good things about it and thought I'd give it a try. In all it took me about 30 minutes to read as its aimed at children with large font and illustrations. I thought the story was ok and I can fully understand why children enjoy it so much. It reminds me of Roald Dahl in many ways, especially how it depicted the characters. However I didn't like that the book failed to use proper english and sentence structure in parts. I know this is simply the adult in me, and that children will not pick up on these details but I personally felt the story would have worked just the same if written correctly. On a positive note the story is funny in parts and I enjoyed reading it. I think it will be especially appealing to boys who love to get dirty. "

    " Fans of Snicket and Dahl will likely find some giggles here, although I don't feel this one will stand the test of time as well. Funny and melodramatic. "
