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!

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.
