the Brownie book club
Brownies, why not take part in our book club? Each month, we review a
book. Sometimes they are new books and
sometimes they are old classics that you'll
find in your school library. Read them and
tell us what you think.
Mr Gum and the Cherry Tree
by Andy Stanton
Set in the
fictional town of Lamonic Bibber, the book
follows nine-year-old heroine Polly as she
tries to stop the grumpy old Mr Gum (who
hates almost everything) from causing
trouble. There are a number of crazy
characters who provide a lot of fun, like
Beany McLean - who loves speaking in rhymes,
or the O'Leary clan who are named after
days of the week. The book is full of unusual
ideas and adventures!
Jenna, the Brownie Book Club Editor, thinks
This made me giggle out loud. Full of silliness and wacky ideas, it really appeals to your imagination and takes you to a world where anything is possible - a gingerbread man headmaster? Why not! Andy is an excellent writer and this is a book that I did not want to put down.
Jenna loved it! She rated
This is a really fantastic book to read! It was very exiting as well.
Alidia loved it! She rated
I thought it was great! It was actually Mr Gum in the tree just trying to get their things. I thought it was fun. Polly's dog was huge and funny. I would give this book five out of five.
Charlotte loved it! She rated
I loved this book. I really enjoyed the part where the whopper of a dog comes in. I have read many of the Mr Gum books and when I heard there was another one I new I had to read it. This book was bigger than the other Mr Gum books I have read and that was good because I could enjoy it longer.
Nell liked it! She rated
It was really great it was so good that I read it in five days! Now even my sister wants me to read it to her.
Pru liked it! She rated
I have read all the Mr Gum books and when I heard there was a new one I was desperate to read it. This is the best one yet and I honestly can't choose one good part because it was all amazing!
Anna loved it! She rated
I just couldn't put it down! When mum said it was bedtime I shouted, ‘No!'. I picked my torch up and secretly read under the duvet.
