    Warning: This isn't the real thing...it's funnier! "Gerber's affectionate, giggle-inducing send-up is one giant step toward restoring the somewhat debased art form known as 'parody,'" says Sean Kelly, former editor of National Lampoon. If you love Harry Potter - or if you have had enough of him! - you've gotta hear this.

    "PARENTS be aware this is NOT a book for children!!"
    Overall

    I enjoy a good parody, but this isn't one. I have to say I was surprized and cringed at the repeated instances and lower-than-low level of vulgarity in this "humorous" parody. I kept hoping the author would take into account that the base demographic reader of the original work were children, but there appeared to be no level to which he would not sink. I realize that to some of extent this "humor" is part and parcel of a parody and to each his own, I just wish parents (whose children want every "Harry Potter" item out there) were given some kind of forewarning before their kids purchase it thinking they are part of the target audience only to be fouly disappointed.
