Description
The amazing product introduced in Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder was such a successful invention that, in this sequel for readers 9 to 11, Doctor Proctor, Nilly, and Lisa progress to a time-traveling bathtub. You just hop in, lather up the Time Soap, and wish for where you'd like to go. But it seems the doctor already has a destination in mind, hoping to save his true love Juliette Margarine from marrying an evil count. Surprising as it might be, this delightfully frothy chapter book comes from Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo, who can't resist stirring things up a bit with a herd of hippos, a scheming assistant, and Time Soap that keeps going awry, sending Nilly and Lisa to the storming of the Bastille.

"At the end of their last outing, Doctor P. headed back to Paris to save the love of his life, Juliette Margarine, from having to marry evil Claude Cliché. A mysterious postcard from the past sends Nilly and Lisa on a mission to rescue him, both helped and hindered by the doctor's crazy inventions, including a time-traveling bathtub and translating nose plugs. A whirlwind tour of French history ensues, including stops at the Moulin Rouge, the Tour de France, Waterloo, the Bastille, Monsieur Eiffel's workroom, and Joan of Arc's jail cell, with our heroes changing history right and left. Chasing them through time is Raspa, Proctor's one-legged former assistant, inventor of time-travel soap, who makes the ultimate sacrifice to atone for past misdeeds.... Plenty of goofy moments, a few farts, and a mostly happy ending."—School Library Journal
