Marvelous MUSTACHE Middle-Grade Monday!

Welcome to MMGM at A Monster Ate my Book Report! 
This week we have picked a FAN{TACHE}TIC book by one of our favorite authors, Mr. Tom Angleberger, Fake Mustache.  This is a great meme started by Ms. Shannon Messenger and there are lots of other blogs that participate, so make sure you head on over to Ms. Shannon's blog to see the list!

     I am very excited about Tom Angleberger's book Fake Mustache.  I just started to read it, and let's just say, it's very humorous--and hairy.  I think it is a really good book and, right now, everyone seems to be going through mustache fever, so it has come out at just the right time.
     Once again, I am very impressed with Mr Angleberger's writing and I encourage him to keep doing it.


     Mustaches are in--and so is Tom Angleberger's new book, Fake Mustache.  It's filled with hairy adventures.  I can't wait to read it.  It will be so much fun.
     If you love mustaches, read Fake Mustache.  If you don't, read it and then you just might wake up with a mustache of your very own.
     Read it, before it's too late to start your obsession with facial hair.

Make sure you check out Tom Angleberger's site:

We have also reviewed Mr. Angleberger's other books, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back.  If you haven't heard of these or just want to watch our funny videos click here:

We love to meet authors!  And Marsh was lucky enough to meet and interview Mr. Angleberger at The Southern Festival of Books in Nashville, Tennessee.  It was a great opportunity and super cool that he took  the time to meet with his fans.  If you want to see the interview you can click here:

Summary of Fake Mustache taken from Goodreads:

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?
