It's a bold new look for Mr Gum, the best-selling cult classic, ready for a new generation of 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, THE TRUTH IS A LEMON MERINGUE. Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear is the fifth book in the internationally best-selling series by Andy Stanton, which has won everything from the Blue Peter Book Award (twice) to the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Red House Children's Book Award.
