      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Basically, if you don't buy your child this book you don't love them.

      The plot of Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire is that Alan Taylor, rich, electric, gingerbread man, is robbed by the evil and stupid Mr Gum. Little girl and hero Polly along with her eccentric friend Friday set out on a quest to stop the terrible villain. The plot almost doesn't matter. What does matter is this is a fantastic, laugh out loud hilarious book and a great way to introduce children to absurdist humour. The story is fast paced, the imagery jumps off the page, and the whole thing is packed with little touches that arguably brings it up from a good book to a great one (chapter seven opens with two characters sitting in the chapter seven café, a ghost gives one of the heroes his email address, '"sigh," sighed Polly with a sigh', I could go on but I don't want to spoil it!). Fun characters (Mr Gum graces the cover but the protagonist is female so you shouldn't have much trouble getting your child to read it whether they're a girl or a boy) make it more than simply a book full of jokes and you'll finish it desperate to read the rest of the series.
      There's very few books I would reccomend higher than this one.
