An angry bathtub fairy, a stinky old man, chocolates made by dolphins and lemon meringue pie! All in this zany, off-the-wall new series from comic genius/ beardy turnip-head Andy Stanton.

Andy Stanton’s You’re a Bad Man, Mr Gum is the first in a series of fantastic nonsensical books which evoke memories of Roald Dahl and Edward Lear. His
characters are whimsical, hideous, beastly, ridiculous but outrageously funny.
