WARNING: THIS ISN'T THE REAL THING. . . IT'S FUNNIER! '"Stop that movie, " Headmaster Alpo Bumblemore said, "or Hogwash is history!" After someone sells directions to the school to a sleazy Muddle tabloid, Barry Trotter, Ermine Cringer, and Lon Measly are hauled out of retirement to face their toughest challenge yet. Not only do the 22-year-olds have to elude packs of rabid fans, outwit Barry's sponging Uncle Sereous, and vanquish their old foe Lord Valumart, they have to face the most powerful enemy of all: Hollywood! This book is funny and sharp, but not merely funny and sharp: in its bratty way, Barry Trotter is as energetic and imaginative as the books that inspired it. Kurt Andersen, author of Turn of the Century; co-founder, Spy Magazine. "This really good parody, it illuminates Rowling's books capturing their nuances and annoyances-then does more: Gerber's ever-unpredictable twists and stinging jibes add a sumptuousness beyond anything in the original. Filled with good, smart, dirty jokes, readers will love the impertinence of Barry Trotter.
