Translated by Tara F. Chace

Aladdin | November 27, 2012 | Trade Paperback

Who Cut the Cheese? is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
“Large helpings of whimsy, humorous black-and-white illustrations, and the occasional fart joke provide plenty of silliness” (Booklist) in the third Doctor Proctor adventure from New York Times bestselling author Jo Nesbø.

Nilly, Lisa, and Doctor Proctor are too busy inventing things to watch TV, and everyone says they’re missing out on the hot singing competition. But then Nilly and Lisa notice that their friends and family are acting really weird. And the only people acting weird…are the ones watching TV.

What’s going on is WAY bigger than a singing competition. It could mean the end of the world.

Or a silent but deadly could save everything!

Let ’er rip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Doctor Proctor Books Reason for Reading: next (and, I'm guessing, last) in the series. Simple enough plot: Lisa and Nilly figure out that most of Norway has been hypnotized by space aliens whose ultimate goal is to take over the world so they can use humans as food. They alert Dr. Proctor and the three of them, with the aid of several others who have not been hypnotized set out to stop the dastardly aliens before they can invade Denmark and set their world domination plan into action. Hilarious! I read this book in two sittings and enjoyed it probably the most of all three books. There are no references to book 2 at all except for mention of Dr. P's lady friend who is still in France and not a character in this book, so there is no need to have read the books in order. I do recommend at least having read book 1 though as it explains the whole Fart Powder background, while this book just assumes you know the power of the invention. Also, the American publishers make a big deal of the "fart" allusions in the title of these books , but except for book 1 there is very little toilet humour within the books at all once you get past the idea of "fart powder". The name of this book in Norwegian is "Doctor Proctor and Armageddon. Maybe." which is an appropriate title while "Who Cut the Cheese?" is simply a marketing gimmick. However ... The story is deliciously funny. Nilly and Lisa are fantastic kid characters, with strange families and even stranger classmates and teachers. We have a few new characters along for the ride this time who add a new dimension to the team but as usual, Nilly and Lisa are the only main kid characters. The plot is way-out there silly and Doctor Proctor as usual has a few fun inventions to help them out. If you've enjoyed the other books in this series, you'll love this one! To me, there is a finality to the book which makes me think this may be the last book in the series. If so, I'm happy to leave the characters here and have enjoyed my time with them. For younger children, I suggest you just read books 1 & 3 and leave book 2 for older children who have some historical knowledge/interest in France.

Read from the Book

World War and Hiccups IT WAS NIGHTTIME in Oslo, Norway, and it was snowing. Big, seemingly innocent snowflakes wafted down from the sky to land on the city’s roofs, streets, and parks. A weatherperson would surely have explained to you that the snowflakes were just frozen rain, which came from the clouds, but the fact is that no one really knows for sure. Snowflakes could, for example, come from the moon, which was visible through gaps in the cloud cover and cast a magical light down over the sleeping city. The snow crystals that hit the asphalt in front of Town Hall melted immediately and ran off as water into the nearest manhole cover, dripping through its openings down into a pipe that led directly into the sewer network that crisscrossed back and forth down there, deep below Oslo. No one was really sure what was actually down there in that sewer world, but if you were so dumb and brave as to climb down there on this December night, remain completely still, and hold your breath, you would hear a few strange things. Water dripping, sewage gurgling, rats rustling, a frog croaking. And—if you were really unlucky—the sound of a couple of massive jaws that creaked open into a mouth the size of an inflatable swim ring, the sound of anaconda saliva dripping, and then an ear-splitting snap as the orifice slammed shut. After that, it was guaranteed to be complete silence for you, my unlucky friend. But seeing as you weren’t so unlucky, you would have heard o
