Coming soon – the Mr Gum Audiobooks by Andy Stanton

Mr Gum and Natboff! author Andy Stanton has recorded hilarious Mr Gum audiobooks for the BBC, which are now available to buy.

Shabba me whiskers! The BBC have only gone and turned the whole of the bestselling and award-winning Mr Gum series into audio books! And not only that, but they’re all read by the author, Andy Stanton himself! And they’ve got music and sound effects and silly voices and horrible singing and EVERYTHING!

Here’s what Andy Stanton has to say about them: ‘Good evening. This is Andy Stanton, professional children’s author and part-time marshmallow. Hey, do you like hearing Mr Gum read out loud by a complete idiot? Well, then, you’re in luck, because guess what? I’ve gone and recorded all of my Mr Gum books for you!’

‘Yes, that’s right, folks, every single word of these audio books is spoken by ME! And not only that, but these recordings are absolutely JAM-PACKED with silly voices, weird sound effects and utterly ridiculous songs (sorry about my singing, by the way, it’s appalling). So there you have it – what are you waiting for? GET LISTENING, YOU NIBBLEHEADS!’

Take a look at Andy in action recording the Mr Gum! audiobooks in the BBC studio.

The Mr Gum audiobooks are released on 06 September 2018. So what you waiting for? Buy them now, you lucky little peanuts!
