From the author of the Strange Case of the Origami Yoda, comes a hair-larious adventure of Lenny Flem, Junior, who teams up with Jodie O'Rodeo to save the world from his best friend, Casper, who uses his remarkable fake mustache to pull the hair over everyone's eyes in a quest for world domination.
Told in two parts (Lenny starts the telling, and Jodie picks up half-way through), Fake Mustache (Lexile: 710; Interest Level: Grades 3-6) is funny enough to make you laugh the hair off your face! After Casper buys the Heidleberg Handlebar Number Seven (fake mustache) at Sven's Fair Price Store, all sorts of crazy things start to happen, and poor Lenny is caught up in the midst of it! With fake mustaches, super sticky-stretchy hands, yodelling, horseback riding, disguises, and bike thieves, this story has enough to entertain even the most reluctant of readers. So, hold onto your hair! and jump into a fun 2015 Indian Paintbrush Nominee! (196 p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
