Henry Potty and the Pet Rock: An Unauthorized Harry Potter Parody (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: 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 kids out there. An easy afternoon's read, enjoyable and quirky...If you're in the mood for a silly farce it'll be perfect, and even if you aren't it'll still be fun. –Burning Void Reviews Any resemblance to a certain wildly successful fantasy novel is purely the author's intention…I haven't laughed out loud so much since reading Bored of the Rings. –Reader’s Robot Children of all ages (including adults) will adore this hilarious parody! –Kathy Boswell, President of Reviewers International Organization
