Synopsis

Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder: The End of the World. Maybe. by Jo Nesbo

Everyone is hooked on the hottest singing competition on TV, The NoroVision Choral Throwdown! Everyone, that is, except for Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa, who are far too busy having fun to watch TV. But when people start acting oddly, the three friends begin to suspect that there's more to the show than meets the eye...Can it really be hypnotising everyone in Norway?

Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa are back in their third adventure from Jo Nesbo, the bestselling Norwegian author of all time!

"This terrific book will make you laugh, and cherish your friends." - James Patterson

"A hilarious story... Great to see real talent emerge in a category often dominated by formulaic series." - The Bookseller

"Lashings of silliness, quirkiness, self-deprecating humour, and a rollicking plot." The Bookbag

"Fuelled by farts, this is fast-paced and a delightfully ridiculous adventure." Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids
