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.
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.
The fourth and final laugh-out loud adventure in the Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder series from Jo Nesbo, the most successful Norwegian author of all time. 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. In the spirit of Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket, Doctor Proctor offers a winning combination of humour, adventure, and absurdity that kids (of all ages) will love!
