Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Tom Angleberger flexes his comic muscle in Fake Mustache, a hairy adventure story with twists at every turn.
Regular kid Lenny Flem Jr. is the only one standing between his evil-genius best friend—Casper, a master of disguise and hypnosis—and world domination. It all begins when Casper spends money from his granny on a spectacularly convincing fake mustache, the Heidelberg Handlebar #7. With it he’s able rob banks, amass a vast fortune, and run for president.
Is Lenny the only one who can see through his disguise? And will he be able to stop Casper from taking over the world?
“There’s no twist too goofy or absurd as Angleberger pulls out all the stops for this unabashedly silly story.” —Publishers Weekly
“Angleberger’s foot-on-the-floor zaniness helps pull it off, fueled by a steady stream of gags and utter ridiculousness that make Saturday-morning cartoons seem reasonable in comparison. Pure, unfiltered hilarity.” —Booklist
