Overview

Catastrophe strikes Chickenfeet Academy, and it's not just the cafeteria food. Lord Revolting, murderous goldfish-flusher, needs Really Wimpy's pet rock to conquer the world! While battling him with squirt guns and cheesy how-to guides, Henry Potty aces Hobology, preps for America's Funniest Fairygodchildren, and tries to avoid laundering Professor Snort's dreaded hankies, or worse, watching A History of Cabbages in Polish. All the while, the least likely character watches, coveting the pet rock for her own sneaky agenda. What part does Socks the parrot, wisecracking pet of Headmaster Bumbling Bore, play in all this? Will Revolting dare the ultimate villainy and spoil the book? Will this novel waste your entire morning? There's only one way to know...

Unapproved, unendorsed, unofficial, and unstoppable: an award-winning parody for all the Harry Potter fans. Now with over 100 pages of new hilarity! Watch Henry Potty take on sparkly vampires in the Try Wizarding Tournament and unite all the hottest franchises into the powerful Order of the Takeout in brand-new scenes exclusive to the special edition.

Editorial Reviews

HistoricalRomanceWriters.com
The new master of the historical romance genre.
Reader Views
A parody like no other I've ever seen in literature: you will chuckle and laugh until your belly hurts...Silly, senseless, and totally nuts, you cannot help but enjoy the ride.
Reader's Robot
I haven't laughed out loud so much since reading Bored of the Rings.
RT Book Reviews
There's an enchantment to Hoyt's stories that makes you believe in the magic of love.
Vox Magazine
Like reading the Harry Potter series through warped glasses.
Wild Child Publishing
A laugh-out-loud, irreverent salute to our obsession with the robed pre-teen...Ms. Frankel is obviously a brilliant writer with a fantastic grasp of the Harry Potter story and its social layers.

    Absolutely fascinating how people rate books

    I find it very entertaining to read reviews because most of the people who make them don't even spell words correctly or use much punctuation at all. Just thought I'd say something about it. Lol. Very good book, by the way.

    Silly

    This is poking light-hearted fun at the Harry Potter books. It is ridiculous with plenty of potty humor for kids who enjoy that. Seriously, who doesn't enjoy a haughty hero named Henry Potty battling Lord Revolting with some help from friends Really Wimpy and Horrendous Gangrene?
