Award-winning author Tom Angleberger flexes his comic muscle in this hairy adventure story with twists at every turn. Regular kid Lenny Flem Jr. is the only one standing between his evil-genius best friend--Casper, a master of disguise and hypnosis--and world domination. It all begins when Casper spends money from his granny on a spectacularly convincing fake mustache, the Heidelberg Handlebar #7. With it he's able rob banks, amass a vast fortune, and run for president. Is Lenny the only one who can see through his disguise? And will he be able to stop Casper from taking over the world?

City Book Review

Casper had been saving up for the number seven handlebar mustache at Sven’s Fair Priced Store, but needed 10 more dollars, so he made his friend Lenny give him the 10 dollars since Lenny gave Casper such a bad present.
