The BUM series

Described as a series of ‘carefully plotted comedy thrillers, one part Lara Croft adventure and two parts Monty Python daftness’, the epic BUM/BUTT trilogy tells the story of Zack Freeman, his crazy runaway bum, a crack bum-fighting unit called the B-team and some of the biggest, ugliest and meanest bums ever to roam the face of the Earth. In Book One (The Day my Bum Went Psycho) Zack foils a worldwide bum rebellion. In Book Two (Zombie Bums from Uranus) he fights an intergalactic bum invasion and in Book Three (Bumageddon: The Final Pongflict) he travels back in time to fight a terrifying range of prehistoric bumosaurs. The trilogy is accompanied by an illustrated guide to prehistoric bumosaur life (What Bumosaur is That?). Some people believe that the bum series books are the worst books ever written in the history of the world. Others believe that they are the funniest. Who is right? You be the judge!
