About the book

One night the Hummick appears in Ellis' bed needing help. Ellis is not sure he wants to give it. But when the Hummick disappears, he tunnels to the bottom of his bed. From there, he plunges into a bizarre world where he meets extraordinary creatures such as Glondocks, Gosanda and Ignatius Quoits.

About the Author

Andrew Gibson

Between 1988 and 1995, Professor Andrew Gibson wrote and published five novels (Ellis and the Hummick, The Abradizil, Jemima, Grandma and the Great Lost Zone, The Amazing Witherspoon's Amazing Circus Crew, Chegwith Skillet Escapes and one collection of short stories for children, The Rollickers.


The collection was illustrated by various artists, but the novels were all illustrated by the major talent of Chris Riddell.


This is a side of Gibson’s work that has since gone into abeyance (or hibernation) but that he is now reviving.
