A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

Best-selling Doctor Proctor is back for a second hilarious adventure following his amazing success with fart powder. Now he’s trying his hand at time travel. Chuck a bath bomb into the bath, lather yourself up and you can soon be off travelling through time without much idea of where you’ll end up. Doctor Proctor wants to get back in time to win back his girlfriend. Alas, nothing goes according to plan and Nilly and Lisa must come to his rescue. Their journey through history is hilarious – and utterly ridiculous, too!

Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder: Time-Travel Bath Bomb by Jo Nesbo

The Fart Powder was such a successful invention that Doctor Proctor couldn't stop there. Next up: a Time-travel Bath Bomb. Throw the Bath Bomb in the tub, lather up and imagine where you'd like to visit. The battle of Waterloo? No problem. The French Revolution? Let's go! Doctor Proctor has plans for this new invention. Years ago he lost his true love, Juliette Margarine, and now he wants to change the past and win her back.
