The Lovereading4Kids comment

With crazy inventions, disappearing socks, half-men half-frogs, a moon chameleon invasion and, of course, plenty of super-sonic bottom burps, this is the gang's most explosive adventure yet! Can they stop an alien invasion in its tracks, or is this actually the end of the world?


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?

"wickedly entertaining" The Big Issue

Praise for Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder:

"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
