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!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 2/11/2014

    " Shameless parody of Harry Potter. Sometimes the humour is disgusting, but generally it's very laughable book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Benedict Reid | 2/10/2014

    " This is very hit and miss humour.... but without any hits. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacey | 2/9/2014

    " Too bogged down with "clever" details that aren't nearly as funny as the narrator thinks they are. Pass. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 rinabeana | 2/2/2014

    " Hi-larious! (And I love HP, so don't think I say that because I don't appreciate what J.K. has written!) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Morgan | 1/28/2014

    " Literary rubbish, intentionally I guess. Still, I finished it and had some laughing moments. Needless to say, no point in reading it if you haven't read J.K. Rowling's books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becca | 1/20/2014

    " Not as funny as I'd hoped. Enjoyed some of the names (Lord Valumart for one) but all in all, a little boring and hard to push through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/16/2014

    " The funniest thing I've ever read. Period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 1/15/2014

    " Good for a laugh in some places if you're familiar with Harry Potter. Probably not funny at all if you aren't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 1/4/2014

    " screamingly funny - a great send-up of the Potter franchise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 12/31/2013

    " This was a very funny and inappropriate book. It parodies Harry Potter quite well and does so with childish potty humor. A very good read for all those with a warped mind and a desire to make fun of HP. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cyan Wisp | 12/31/2013

    " Horrible. Unfunny. "Humour" in this book consists of having silly names for well known people and things. A chore to read. Novelty lasts about 1, maybe 2 pages. [Zzzz] "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/13/2013

    " Cute parody of Harry Potter, I listened to the audiobook, which made it better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anna Sörries | 12/12/2013

    " This was bad. Really really bad. Not funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 12/10/2013

    " Very cynically and cleverly written, in places quite crude thus ruining the humour a touch. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 11/25/2013

    " The boook simply tried too hard and wasn't very good. Oh well. Live and learn and never read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah | 11/22/2013

    " The Barry Trotter books are parodies on the actual series. They are quite hilarious and worth a read if you have some extra time on your hands. They do however, become a bit wearisome at points, since they, in now way, can measure up to the fabulosity of the original series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faz | 11/14/2013

    " Harry Potter was fantasy. This book is more in line with what a young wizard would do in the real world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kezz | 7/27/2013

    " mad, funny and i was lucky to find this in a charity shop!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nina (Project Read and Review) | 4/13/2013

    " I haven't even gotten to page 40 yet. It seems like Gerber has just gotten loads of random words from an old dictionary and put them anywhere that was too boring. Best to avoid this, methinks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clara | 2/18/2013

    " Really hilarious, but I read it very young and imagine much of the humor flew over my head. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gheeta | 1/20/2013

    " A funny parody, though definitely not for the kids. Worth a read if you have nothing better to do with your time, but I wouldn't go to any undo effort to find this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 8/16/2012

    " Ha I love this book. I remember seeing in WHSmiths & making my grandma buy me it! I totally recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 6/21/2012

    " First and only parody I have ever read and I laughed my little butt off ... you have to be enough of a Potter fan to follow the terrible jokes in this one , but well worth the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Winda | 1/21/2012

    " a disgusting parody of Harry Potter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lellan | 10/28/2011

    " This was bad. Really really bad. Not funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anya | 3/8/2011

    " Ha Ha! a bit gross at time ;p "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 2/6/2011

    " Good for a laugh in some places if you're familiar with Harry Potter. Probably not funny at all if you aren't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ander | 1/29/2011

    " A send-up of western literature so rude and irreverent it would give a librarian a heart attack.If you wish the Boy Who Lived would just die,this perverse but hilarious book will be satisfying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 1/14/2011

    " I found parts of this book funny and the story wasn't too bad but it could have been funnier. What more can I say? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 12/5/2010

    " The funniest thing I've ever read. Period. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom | 4/3/2010

    " Very weak entry, even considering the leeway necessary for this genre. I would not recommend this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Schnicklfritz | 3/14/2010

    " I'm not gonna finish this crap! And I'm not saying this because I Love Harry Potter and cannot laugh about parodies! It's just stupid and exaggerated! It's like the Author put every thought he had into one big bowl and picked randomly which one to use next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faz | 2/19/2010

    " Harry Potter was fantasy. This book is more in line with what a young wizard would do in the real world. "
