Mr. Gum is a book series for kids that is wildly popular in the U.K. and has just reached our shores here in the USofA. I have the honor of working with the author, a mad genius named Andy Stanton, on an animated series based on these wonderful books. Our project is in the very early stages and may never see the light of day. But why wait for us to succeed before you enjoy the magic of Mr. Gum? If you have a boy or girl age 9 to 12, you will not regret introducing him or her to these books.
