THIS entry nails it! I was perhaps around 6 years old, and the bubblegum monster of Gooey Gus was as hard as it is to believe now looking at him- simply terrifying!
I was even convinced he would show up at school to get me, so laughable! A great albeit haunted memory, and a wonderful blog post, good to see I wasn't the only one scarred by this experience, as I am still quite bitter at not receiving my Hogwarts letter too, too much for one person to stand!
