Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you are reading this, you're a genius.

Is that true? Who knows! But it sounds good. So does:

This book is better than ice cream, television, and your birthday combined!

The Facttracker is full of such statements. Unfortunately, most of them are lies, which is odd, since Traäkerfaxx is the town that produces all of the world's facts.

So how can a story about a bizarre town with a weird name become the greatest novel ever written?

Dinosaurs would help. Or maybe aliens. Alien dinosaurs would be dynamite! Alas, we have none of those. Here's what we do have: the Facttracker, who tracks all the facts in Traäkerfaxx. The just small enough boy, who lost all his facts. And Ersatz, but the less said about him the better. And, of course, there are lots and lots of facts and lies, such as:

This book will make you good-looking and popular!

Was that a fact or a lie? For the answer, read on and encounter adventure, peril, and even more large, oversized words!

Review:

"There is enough silliness and action to keep younger readers turning the pages, and it is sophisticated enough to be thoroughly enjoyed by teens and adults." Children's Literature

Review:

"The entire enterprise is, quite simply, pure unadulterated fun." Kirkus Reviews
