Watch Your Back, Louis Sachar

Let me set the scene by giving you the full title of this book: Fake Mustache: Or, How Jodie O'Rodeo and her Wonder Horse (and Some Nerdy Kid) Saved the U.S. Presidential Election from a Mad Genius Criminal Mastermind.

The trouble starts when Lenny Flem Jr.'s best friend, Casper, buys a first-class man-about-town suit for his birthday. With his leftovers, he purchases the Heidelberg Handlebar #7 fake mustache.

Then he decides to take over the world.

He is ultimately foiled by a horse. 

Dudes, this book approaches Wayside School levels of wackiness. It was like reading one of those hyper 1990's Nick Jr. Saturday morning cartoons.

There are also illustration by Jen Wang who should illustrate more zanny middle grade books.

Throw this book at: People who think that they graduated from Miss Zarves' class.
