  • Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder Collection - 5 Books

    Jo Nesbo

    Product Code: DRPC
    Collection 9 years +
    Hand-picked favourites
    Jo Nesbo may be best-known for his gritty Nordic crime thrillers, but did you know he's also a most-talented children's author? The Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder series is full of the zest and buoyancy of David Walliams and Roald Dahl's most popular novels.

    This collection brings together all five hilarious novels in this bestselling series. The crazy plots revolve around Doctor Proctor - an inventor who dreams of becoming famous. When he creates a super-strength fart powder that can propel people into outer space, he may have just achieved his goal... But he hasn't counted on the ruthless twins Tuis and Trym spoiling his plans! The fart-filled adventure takes in a firework extravaganza, a trip to prison and an escaped anaconda!

    The other books in the series are equally delightfully absurd - Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa have to win a football tournament to save the last of Norway's gold (which has been turned into the trophy), the Doctor works on a Time-Travel Bath Bomb and he and his friends discover a TV show is hypnotising everyone who watches it...

    Wickedly funny stories for children, including reluctant readers, aged 9 and over.
