Why I love this book:
Well leave it to the author of Origami Yoda to come up with a story like this. As utterly absurd as this book is, it just works marvelously with non stop action.  From a nasal gun that shoots out fake boogers to the ultra-sticky-stretchy grabber hand, this book has it all.

Kids who love action, fun contraptions and humor will enjoy this book.

Final thoughts:
If ever confronted with the opportunity to purchase the Heidelberg Handlebar Mustache Number Seven – run, don’t walk away from this hairy monstrosity of evil. That and never count out a has been, preteen daytime tv star.
