Just a Few of the People You Will Meet in This Thrilling Saga

Mr. Gum: A fierce old man who lives in a horrible house but has the prettiest, greeniest, floweriest, gardeniest garden in the world.

Polly: A golden-hearted girl with hair like a cat's daydream who loves dogs.

Jake: A massive whopper of a dog who is very furry and loves to romp in gardens.

Crafty Tom: A Tyrannosaurus rex with a heart of gold. *

Do you see where this is going? Mr. Gum has a garden, and Jake has a thing for gardens, and the two are heading for a showdown. Soon, very soon, things will get uglier than a squirrel blowing his nose on a butterfly.

* Actual book may not include Crafty Tom.

Andy Stanton lives in North London. He studied English at Oxford but they kicked him out. He has been a film script reader, a cartoonist, a hospital worker, and lots of other things. He has many interests, but best of all he likes cartoons, books, and music (even jazz). One day he'd like to live in New York or Berlin or one of those places because he's got fantasies of bohemia. His favorite expression is ""Good Evening"" and his favorite word is ""Captain"". This is his first book.
