Mr Gum and the Power Crystals

Smooky palooki! Mr Gum is back, lurk-lurk-lurkin’ about about and doing lots of menacing and a spot of snurfling. Book 4 features an extraordinary tale, one so strange that it can’t be explained, not even by Old Granny.

It's the tale of Polly and that old tumbledown windmill down by the riverside in Lamonic Bibber. Just what is the windmill’s terrible secret? Who is Nicholas de Twinklecakes? And what does "Vorsicht! Es Gibt eine kleine eule hinter dir!" mean? There’s also an epic chase scene, better than anything you’ll ever see at the cinema (unless it’s a chase scene in a film called "Mr Gum and the Power Crystals").
