Synopsis

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

Full of humour and witty dialogue, Jo Nesbo creates wonderfully weird characters and lets his imagination run wild in his Doctor Proctor series. A must read for fans of David Walliams and Roald Dahl.

Everyone is hooked on the hottest 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… Can it really be hypnotising everyone?

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