Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
After the death of overly caffeinated Headmaster Dumb-As-A-Door by the traitorous barista frappe, Harry Potty, Don Measley, and Whiny Stranger must find a way to defeat the noseless dark lord, Value-Mart (He Whose Prices Can't Be Beat) and his followers, the Odor Eaters. Since Harry and Don didn't read their textbooks (the seven Harry Potter books), Whiny must recap events in the books (which of course are full of comical twists on the original plot) to bring the boys up to speed with Value-Mart's current antic, taking over Nosewarts and hiding all the Horbucks at Gringott's outdoor storage facility. Special appearances are made by Larry King, Elmo, Elmer Fudd, and Papercutz's Stinky Dead Kid, among others. If one joke doesn't work, don't worry because 20 more will follow it. Parker's detailed art keeps up with the densely plotted parody, which will appeal to fans of fractured fairy tales, parodies, and other twisted jokes. Ages 8–14. (Nov.)
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—While creative, this graphic novel is convoluted and chaotic and will most likely offend avid fans of the popular series while leaving readers unfamiliar with it wondering why it is supposed to be funny. Whatever story line supposedly exists is completely lost in the plethora of twisted references to the Rowling novels. Harry Potty, Whiny Stranger, and Don Measley charge through the pages with no clue as to where they are going. While the dialogue occasionally elicits a laugh (or at least a smirk), the text is just too nonsensical to be amusing. The art is reminiscent of Mad Magazine and is fun in its own right. Numerous details exist to draw readers in even if they have given up on the plot.—Carol Hirsche, Provo City Library, UT

    Highly Recommended

    Despite the title, Harry Potty and the Deathly Boring parodies the entire series of books/movies, not just Deathly Hallows It's very funny.
