Itching to Rule the World? Vordak the Incomprehensible Can Help!
"Greetings, inferior one. I am Vordak the incomprehensible. Who you are doesn't matter. What does matter is my dastardly decision to add the world of book publishing to my growing list of conquests. Without even trying very hard, I have created a book of such unbelievable brilliance that it dwarfs all other literature preceeding it throughout the course of human history."
One thing Vordak isn't, is modest. One thing he is, though, is funny. Very, very funny. Oops! I meant scary, of course...you see, unlike the superheroes your son or daughter might have read about in the past, who are all about taking responsibility for your power, protecting the weak, and so on, Vordak is evil. Just pure evil. "I'm talking 'willing to pull the moon into a collision course with the Earth by means of a powerful, nuclear-powered tractor beam in order to get your way' evil." And his books (he's up to three so far) are all about getting kids to discover their inner bad guy and rule the world. I defy anyone to read this without laughing out loud at least once.
How to Grow Up and Rule the World includes such useful information as selecting a gut-wrenchingly evil name, how to create a lair, and how to select a henchman. Mr. Incomprehensible clearly knows his stuff. Say, I wonder why he isn't ruling the world?
This book is a great choice for middle-school readers who like their humour wacky and smart, and who still like lots of pictures enlivening their text. Here are book trailers for the first two volumes:
