Tom Angleberger is the author of the wildly popular "The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda" and "Darth Paper Strikes Back", neither of which I read. But I was curious about this guy's writing, so I dived in. This book is hilarious and will appeal to boys and girls alike. The premise is a novelty company sells a 12 year old boy a very expensive, and very possessed, mustache. He becomes an instant master criminal, robbing banks and planning world domination. His best friend teams up with a former child star to try to stop him. There's plenty of action and no small amount of humor in this book (I chuckled through most of the book). This book doesn't have the visual help of a Star Wars figure on it's cover, but if a kid picks it up, they are going to fall into the story with glee.
