What to Read After... Mr Gum 19/08/19
Publisher: Tara Books
Neel has the best of intentions but nothing ever seems to go as planned for the unlucky day dreamer. Even though he diligently lists his weekly resolutions, one by one his hopeful plans go awry. Be it traffic accident-causing elephants, clocks that go backwards or runaway homework nothing turns out right. Worst of all no-one believes his stories, claiming they are all just 'excuses'.
This quirky, rhyming tale is sure to delight young readers as they follow Neel on his madcap adventures. Gabrielle Manglou's illustrations, mixing photographs and drawings together, set the tone of the book perfectly as together, the words and artwork take the reader on a journey into a young boy's lively imagination.
