Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The first in a brand new series from the fevered imagination of the award-winning, bestselling author of the Mr Gum series. Welcome to the last days of Pompeii as you've NEVER imagined them before! Join fart-trader Caecilius, his wife, Vesuvius, and their ten-year-old son, Filius, in a bizarre world of accidental gladiators, pizza-emitting volcanoes and the legendary Ma-wol-n-f. You'll meet the household servant, Slavius; thrill at the misadventures of Barkus Wooferinicum and generally have an uproariously hilarious time of it all. Full of ludicrous characters, surreal escapades and outrageous word play - if you thought Mr Gum was weird, then get a load of the Ancient Pompeiians! A hilarious new series from the funniest that will have 7+ readers howling with laughter.
Biographical NoteAndy Stanton studied English at Oxford but they kicked him out. Before becoming a children's writer he was a film script reader, a market researcher, an NHS lackey, a part-time sparrow, and a grape. He is best-known for the hilarious, bestselling and award-winning Mr Gum series and has also written picture books, including Danny McGee Drinks the Sea. Andy lives in North London and likes cartoons, books and music (even jazz). Now based in a village just outside Bath, Sholto Walker grew up in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, just 100 yards from the sea. When he wasn't on the beach he was in his room taking things apart or just drawing. He is the illustrator of countless children's books for Macmillan, Random House, Faber & Faber, Annick Press, and Egmont.
