Summary

Nilly is the new kid in school, but he doesn’t let that or his tiny size slow him down. After all, he has his smart mouth, quick wits, and fearless nature to see him through. Nilly quickly makes two special friends: Lisa, a girl whose own best friend has just moved, and Doctor Proctor, who has (1) a tragic past (including lost love and betrayal) and (2) a talent for inventing things like industrial strength fart powder. Before long the three friends are involved in a bizarre adventure that includes a huge anaconda, evil bullies, a treacherous theft, a trip through the sewers of Oslo, and some missing gunpowder.
This rollicking and highly explosive story – hilariously read by Audie Award-winning narrator William Dufris – is not for sensitive ears. For the rest of us, it’s more fun than a good game of Pull-My-Finger!

GREAT story!

My son made my husband sit in a parking lot for almost an hour finishing the book. What a great read.

Farts are funny

My four-year old boy absolutely loves this story. It's the only one out of dozens of audiobooks that he asks for anymore.
