Years passed and at long last Tom got his due thanks to a little unassuming title by the name of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.

I was into Tom before everyone else was, but considering how much fun Fake Mustache is I guess I ’ m anxiou to share him a little.

If he hadn ’ t lent Casper the measly ten bucks then it 's pretty certain that Lenny Flem Jr. wouldn ’ t have found himself pairing up with famous television star and singer Jodie O ’ Rodeo to defeat he evil genius Fako Mustacho.

Now Casper, posing as Fako Mustacho, has set his sights on the U.S. presidency and only Lenny and Jodie are willing and able to defeat him.

To writ his autobiography, kid or adult, you eed to have somewhere to safely place your disbelief.

hings like the act that the state legislature tends to meet in the local Chinese buffet restaurant because “ They used to meet in our fancy gold-domed capitol building, but they kept trashing the bathrooms and got kicked out. ” Or take the old woma who uses a form of swearing worthy of Yosemite Sam himself: “ Leave those hats alone, you FarDobbled Candy-Bar-Selling Punkler! ” Silliness abounds.

Personally, though, I get the books where the characte is the hero ’ s best friend to e a lot ore nteresting.

I hink we ’ ve all encountered those boy readers who refuse to pick up book if they see it stars a girl.

I ask that, but there were some jokes in his essay that I wouldn ’ t remove for all the fake mustaches in the world.

It ’ s he rare title that ’ s fun to kids and adults and reads just as well in the head of a ten-year-old as it does on the ips of a ifth grade teacher.

I know he ’ s got enough books out by this point that you can label this title “ classic Angleberger ” through and through.

This two written thus far are so ood that I continue to recommend them to people today.Second, let me know that Fake Mustache is not an Origami Yoda book.

The Origami Yoda books are written from severa perspectives and feature a sympathetic main character who is helping to figure out whether a perplexing friend is psychic or channeling a fictitious movie character or just plain crazy.

he action is spread through Lenny ’ s mansio, the Heidelberg novelty company factory, Sven ’ s Fair Price Store and the Hairsprinkle Municipal Stadium.The plot is ver complex, but basically Lenny Jr. saves the world from his best friend Casper and his fake mustache with the elp of his favorite TV star, Jodie O ’ Rodeo and the mustaches inventor, Hank Heidelberg.

I will et another book by the author if I saw it, but I have th feeling my friends would consider themselves too old for it.I would give he story four out of five stars.
