Best-selling Doctor Proctor is back in a swift moving, smart talking new adventure. This time inventive scientist Doctor Proctor together with his young friends Nilly and Lisa are after a Russian billionaire who has robbed all the gold bars from the Norwegian gold reserve and melted the last one into a football trophy. Can the good Doctor outwit the Russian billionaire and his henchmen? As ever, it’s a roller coaster ride with lots of laughs along the way.

Lovereading Comment..

Full of humour and witty dialogue, the Doctor Proctor books feature wonderfully weird characters. Jo Nesbø has let his imagination run wild in this delightful, wacky children’s series, packed with crazy inventions and plenty of explosive action.

Best known for his adult crime thrillers, Jo Nesbø has sold millions of books worldwide. His first children’s book, Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder, became the number one debut children’s book of all time in his native Norway, and has been sold in more than 20 countries so far! In the UK, the book was featured in the Richard & Judy Kids’ Book Club.

Synopsis

Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder: The Great Gold Robbery by Jo Nesbo

When a Russian billionaire robs the Norwegian Gold Reserve and melts the last remaining gold bar into the Premier Soccer League trophy, it's up to Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa to get the trophy and save Norway. But with a failed break-in attempt into the billionaire's subterranean gold-melting lab and the Norwegian Gold Reserve Inspection only three days away, the only way to retrieve the trophy is to win it back. Hoping to prevent national panic and uproar, Nilly and Lisa join the Rotten Ham soccer team and use the Fartonaut Powder, along with a handful of Doctor Proctor's other wacky inventions, to try and lead the hopeless underdog team to victory before time runs out.
