Nice book.

I was recommended this book as I enjoy comic children’s fiction. This story is one from the series of Mr Glum, which uses similar themes and repeated characters. Wherever there is mischief Mr Glum is involved. In this case the whole village is convinced into giving their most precious belongings to a past spirit, who has come back. Although they are warned against it by, they are as always, nearly tricked by Mr Glum. I was disappointed by this book, as I felt it was trying far too hard to be fun ...more

This book was great, fantastic and most marvellous. But what is going on in the nice and shiny but squeaky and creepy town of Lamonic Bibber?

I can tell you that the villagers (apart from Polly, Friday O'Leary and the gingerbread man Alan Taylor) have gone mad about a stupid old cherry tree. But, uh, uh, uh - that isn't just any old cherry tree. Well, I suppose it is, but do you think something (/, of course, someone) is lurking around somewhere near that particular little tree?

Hmm... Well, you'l

I didn't like this Mr Gum (or as he is called in Swedish, herr Grums) book as much as the first one. There are some really funny lines, though. Like the one about how there were never unicorns, some horse just accidentally got an ice cream cone on its head (ok, I'm not really delivering it right). A part of the problem was I wasn't in the right mood for all the silliness. Sometimes you want a proper story with proper words, but if you're in more of a wackadoo mood then this series will satisfy.

A villain tries to con some people out of their most cherished possessions.

Obviously I’m not the target audience for this book as I found it a bit disappointing – there are some good plot points, but I felt I’d read everything before. The drawing on the cover was much better than any inside the book (at least in the version I read).

The latest in the series is as good as all the rest. I don't know what it is about the bizarre sense of humour Andy Stanton has, but I enjoy it as much as the kids do. He has an incredible imagination and just enough irreverance and intellectual finger-jabbing to keep me waiting for the next installment.

It's amazingly HILARIOUS. Like when the Little Girl called Peter reads her favorite book Biffy The Worn Gets Arrested For Accidentally Murdering Everyone In Canada. Or when a gingerbread headmaster says a sentence with a spelling mistake. He even tells everyone he's ruined with that proof. This book is recommended to anyone who loves a laugh out loud book
