Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized Parody

Publisher's Summary

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 Serious, and vanquish their old foe Lord Valumart, they have to face the most powerful enemy of all: Hollywood!

What the Critics Say

"Funny and sharp....In its bratty way, Barry Trotter is as energetic and imaginative as the books that inspired it." (Kurt Andersen, Spy Magazine co-founder)
"Gerber's affectionate, giggle-inducing send-up is one giant step toward restoring the somewhat debased art form known as 'parody.'" (Sean Kelly, former editor, National Lampoon)

    "Berry Trotter"

    This book looked very good. I started it with high hopes, but I soon frowned. It was very gross, and not funny...it has a very bad humor...I must say for you not to read it. I liked Harry Potter books, so I thought hey I will try this book. NO, it was bad. I am very sad I spent my money on this bad book that I will trash as soon as I can. I must say the Author COULD have made it great...but in the first few seconds there was a bunch of bad language. I gave this book a good star because I want it to be on the top so people can see it and think over it before they buy this audiobook...........

    "Parodies"

    Barry Trotter is a delightful bit of nonsense.
    The chariscters are so far out, they bring a
    laugh just thinking of this story. Parodies
    are necessary for reminding us that taking ourselves to seriously is not really a good
    thing.

    "Utterly boring"

    Tried my best to get through the first 2 and 1/2 hours. It was torture. It was the worst audiobook I've ever chosen, completely boring and unbelievable. I couldn't wait to hear something else.

    "Not funny at all"

    I listened to the entire thing and didn't laugh a single time. When I listened to the actual Harry Potter books, I laughed out loud numerous times. I did like the ending though - Lon becoming Headmaster of Hogwash and Barry marrying Vermin.
