7th grader, Casper borrows money from his friend Lenny and he buys the number one fake mustache Heidelberg Handlebar #7. It is much more than a costume prop, it has hypnotic powers. Casper convinces people with his fake mustache to elect him for governor which they do, the next step.. President! His friend Lenny, who knows it is a fake mustache isn’t swayed by the mustache power. Lenny tries to stop Casper. Everyone is convinced that Lenny is the evil one as Casper convinces them of it, and they are all then after Lenny. Needing a disguises, Lenny becomes famous pop star Jodie 0’Rodeo a girl!
Disguised Jodie, meets up with the real Jodie the popstar and they team up to try and stop Casper..
It was a comical book. Funny inventions and laughs throughout. Good humor and interesting topic. The end was different in that no one is recognized as a hero and there was not glory given to anyone. The book is written for ages 8-12 and that seems very accurate.
