“Can a seventh grader buy a fake mustache made of real human hair and end up being president of the United States? Yes, if his name is Casper Bengue and he lives in Hairsprinkle. But first Casper needs help from his best friend, Lenny Flem Jr., who, in turn, needs help from the teenage cowgirl queen, Jodie O'Rodeo and her wonder horse, Soymilk, who are the real heroes of this story. Once again Angleberger has created a hilarious, imaginative, gooey novel for middle graders loaded with fun!”
