The Heidelberg Handlebar #7 mustache is ready to take over the world. Be ready to laugh, because this book is 100% ridiculous.

From the author that brought us The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, comes a hilarious story about Lenny Flem Jr., his best friend Casper and an evil mustache.

Lenny alone can't save the world from Casper and the mustache. Luckily, Jodie O'Rodeo (along with her darling horse, Soymilk) is there to help. Lenny and Jodie take turns telling the story, so boys and girls will both love it, although maybe for different reasons. I think everyone will enjoy the story's silliness.

This is an over-the-top, non-stop funny, one-liner kind of book. Let us start with its full title, Fake Mustache: Or, How Jodie O'Rodeo and Her Wonder Horse (and Some Nerdy Guy) Saved the U.S. Presidential Election from a Mad Genius Criminal Mastermind. Pretty descriptive, no? What about the idea that a mustache could possess you and make you evil? That premise alone should start you giggling. Also, the name of the town where all this magic happens is Hairsprinkle. Yes, HAIRSPRINKLE. And, Jodie O'Rodeo the yodeling cowgirl? She can't even yodel. But the thing that puts all this nonsense over the top are booger guns.

Need I say more?
