(From the publisher):
Comic wit Michael Gerber has created a spoof and tongue-in-cheek parody of the famous Hogwart's student, Harry Potter. How would Harry's story be different if he were a more outspoken boy of 11, instead of his obedient and vanilla self? Gerber's realistic vision of what really happens when a herd of owls flies over the dinner table, of more typical relationships between men and women, of a world turned upside-down and upside down again, will delight readers of all ages.
This fun and twisted story includes the half-giant, Halfwit, the ghostly Nearly Brainless Bill, and an order from Alpo Bumbelbore to stop the movie, "Barry Trotter and the Inevitable Attempt to Cash In." With direct hits on Harry's stardom, popularity, and the over-commercialization of the entire magical world, Michael Gerber delivers uncanny satire and biting wit.
