Henry Potty and the Deathly Paper Shortage – Valerie Estelle Frankel

Amazon Synopsis

Unapproved, unendorsed, unofficial, and unstoppable The devious Lord Revolting has split his soul into seven Plot Devices, from the One Ring to Coloring Book of Doom. Destroying the Ministry of Muckups, he launches himself on a campaign of terror and ruthlessness, the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the last Wizneyland Princess Beach Week. Can Henry Potty, lousy student and heroic Chosen One, destroy the Plot Devices in time? Or will a paper shortage kill him, as the loudmouthed ghost of Bumbling Bore foresees? Join Henry as he duels unexploded mimes, flying monkeys, telemarketers, and the dreaded Tooth Fairy. It’s a race against National Treasures, Legions of Dimness, and Miniclorians, from the Funhouse of Terror to Chickenfeet Academy. But if Henry wants to recoup his fans from Professor Sniffly Snort, he must try. As the epic battle nears, only one thing is certain: Henry Potty’s series is numbered.


My Thoughts

Frankel has recreated a Harry Potter story but in a tongue-in-cheek style that is hilarious. Her chapter headings are wickedly funny with titles such as A Series of Unfortunate Camping Trips and The Dimness is Rising. This is an unofficial version to a story that is loved by hundreds. I think Frankel will pick up her own army of fans with this original take on the Potter books. It’s not just HP that gets the Frankel treatment either, there are several other well known and loved stories included in this tale. The Wicked Witch of the West and Dracula even make an appearance along with several other fantasy characters.   Although this is the sequel to Henry Potty and the Pet Rock it can be read as a stand-alone quite easily. I laughed out loud at several passages and highly recommend this book to fans of humorous fantasy novels and parodies. Suitable for all ages this is one that can be shared by the whole family.
