Write a Review

On Account of the Gum is a book about how the best intentions lead to some of the worst (and funniest) ideas!



Serious
humor abounds in this story about one kid's hilarious misadventures
with gum, and the cumulative buildup of stuff stuck in hair.

From the madcap mind of Adam Rex comes a book about the improbable, downright bizarre remedies for a problem kids have faced since the creation of gum.

* Features hilarious text with unexpected turns and fun rhymes

* Wacky suggestions make this prime for constant giggles and repeat reading

* Author Adam Rex has a funny, smart, and relatable style

How
do you get gum out of your hair-a pair of scissors? Butter? The cat?
Call your aunt, she'll know what to do. She doesn't? Try the fire
department!

With each page turn, this situation-relatable to any family-grows stickier and more desperate.

* A wonderful blend of light wordplay, zany humor, and a timeless topic

* Perfect for fans of The Day the Crayons Quit and If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!

*
Great gift for parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians,
booksellers, and educators who are looking for a funny, relatable tale
to read out loud

* Add it the the shelf with books like We Don't Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins, The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors by Drew Daywalt, and The Bad Seed by Jory John.
