"Prepare to be conquered by the world's funniest supervillain"
- Lincoln Peirce, author of the BIG NATE series

Greetings, goobers! After my latest experiment worked a little too well—transforming my rather fetching figure into something significantly smaller—I’ve been forced to return to those halls of horror better known as . . . school. But going back to junior high may be

Shelves: hilarious
Seamus loved this! Was shelved out of order at the library so we started w/ 2 instead of 1, but he's ready for book 3.

Sam loved this! Read twice.

My daughter and I were huge fans of the original Vordak book, though the intended audience was clearly male--which we found a bit perplexing, given how entertained we were by it. Shortly after finishing it, I stumbled upon the Goodreads page for the second book, and we'd been eagerly awaiting it ever since. Some mild spoilers ahead.

The best thing about the Vordak books is Vordak himself. He is a very vivid character with a really unique voice. A would-be supervillain, he tends to talk in very gr

This pint size villain is so incredibly evil, but in such a good way. I'm sure he's not going to enjoy the fact I've called in pint size or evil in a good way. This evil genius is so well written that both adults and MG readers will enjoy reading his books. You don't need to have the desire to want to take over the world or rule the school like Vordak to appreciate his evil, sarcastic charm. There's plenty of laugh out lines, and one liners you'll find yourself wanting to quote, that make this b ...more

So here we see a different side of Vordak the Incomprehensible. In his first book, a guide for aspiring supervillains titled How to Grow Up and Rule the World, Vordak was retiring from a life of crime with one final scheme: finding a worthy apprentice (through his guide) to practice villainy on his behalf with the intent of seizing power back once the work had been done (a kind of reversal of The Police's Wrapped Around Your Finger, I suppose). It was a true guide, one that found it's humor in e ...more

In this new book, the evil supervillian Vordak wants to create a powerful freeze ray that will turn all the water on the planet to ice. But first, he starts with his Abominable Age-Reduction Ray. Whoops, when he tests it on himself, he ends up only being old enough to enter junior high school. Problem is, the balsoid coil broke and now he can't reverse the effects of his Abominable Age-Reduction Ray until he finds a new one. Good thing Farding Junior High has one. So, Vordak, who has a penchant ...more

"So many evil plans, so little time!" This time Vordak designs an "Abominable Age-Reduction Ray" so that he can be younger and in better shape to RULE THE WORLD! Unfortunately, his machine "overshoots his age target" and he's 13 again and forced to go to Farding Jr. High (thanks to a snoopy neighbor who calls the truant officers). But when he learns that Commander Virtue's son goes to this school, an evil plan hatches in his mind. All he had to do is have a career day! Which means he needs to wi ...more

Vordak's back and this time this pint size evil villain finds himself back in middle school *snickers* the poor guy. Even my son enjoyed looking through this book and enjoyed the laughs that ensued with Vordak. If you enjoyed the first Vordak book, I highly recommend picking up this one! You can read my full 5 star review here
Recommended for fans of Vordak's previous title How to Grow Up and Rule the World as well as for fans of truly inept villains. I preferred having an actual storyline vs. the how-to format of the previous book, but missed the moments of absolute brilliance and hilarity that popped up in several of Rule the World's chapters. I still recommend it, though. This may be an easier format to read, and kids can always go back and pick up the other title.

Lincoln Peirce stayed true to his comedic style. This new character is arrogant, quirky, and stupid in a good way. Vordak shrinks himself and therefore to avoid the law enrolls in middle school. Just one of the crazy things he does is run for student body president in his quest to defeat his nemesis Captain Virtue.

It was a funny and interesting story; however, I expected it to be more of a how to guide like the first one. It would have been a bit more entertaining that way. Still really good though.

Kids will probably enjoy it but it wasn't as funny as the first. The original had me laughing out loud repeatedly.

The main character is rude and not very smart but I can see why he 4th grade boys like these books.
Ehh. This strives to be funnier than it manages to be.
