Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder

Buy on Audible Listen on Spotify

by Jo Nesbo

Nilly is new to the neighborhood, but he is quick to make friends: Doctor Proctor, an eccentric professor; and Lisa, who is teased by the twin terrors Truls and Trym. Nilly and Lisa help Doctor Proctor develop his latest invention, a powder that makes you fart!

The powder makes Nilly and Lisa very popular at school when they sell it for fifty cents a bag. And they get revenge on Truls and Trym by giving them a dose of extra-strength powder that shoots them up into a tree. All is good fun… until someone steals the industrial-strength powder—which was supposed to make Doctor Proctor famous—to use for evil purposes…

  1. Doctor Proctor's 0:59


“[Nesbø] extends his talent into the realm of children’s books with a zany scientist and his young comrades who take on bullies and impossible feats with improbable, amazing super-strength fart powder. William Dufris’s tongue-in-cheek narration underscores Nesbø’s farcical humor. Dufris is exuberant as each of the characters . . . sure to keep middle-grade listeners fully engaged.” — AudioFile October, 2011

“Dufris’ timing is perfect, especially when relaying the comedic scenes; his elastic vocalizations make this almost seem like a full-cast recording.” — Booklist October 15, 2010

Praise for the print version of Doctor Proctor:

“Nesbo tells his fantastical story in a matter-of-fact, deadpan style, and Lowery’s simple illustrations match the dry, comedic tone well. The title promises young readers a story with a bang, and it delivers.” — Booklist
