    Tom Angleberger is the bestselling author of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, which won the 2010 E. B. White Read Aloud Award for middle readers,Darth Paper Strikes Back, and Horton Halfpott, which Kirkus dubbed “a romp from start to finish.” He lives in Christiansburg, Virginia, with his wife, author and illustrator Cece Bell.

    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?

    Praise for Fake Mustache

    “There’s no twist too goofy or absurd as Angleberger pulls out all the stops for this unabashedly silly story.”
    —Publishers Weekly

    "Angleberger’s foot-on-the-floor zaniness helps pull it off, fueled by a steady stream of gags and utter ridiculousness that make Saturday-morning cartoons seem reasonable in comparison. Pure, unfiltered hilarity."
    —Booklist

    "The 2012 campaign season just got a little hairier. Kids will delight in the various ways in which Casper exploits his power over grownups."
    —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

    "Appropriately goofy."
    —The Horn Book

    "Angleberger severs all ties with sanity in his latest farce for preteens with hilarious results. There's plenty of action and goofiness. Fans of Angleberger's previous efforts won't be disappointed. Total deadpan lunacy."
    —Kirkus Reviews

    "This is a cute, although improbable, story about two best friends, Lenny and Casper, who live in the small town of Hairsprinkle.. Jodie brings many positive traits of a strong, female hero."
    —Library Media Connection
