The Nose Plumbers' Tale

1 star1 star1 star1 star0.5 star
A highly original mix of history, comedy and boogers, telling the story of the Peasants' Revolt through the eyes of three young serfs whose bravery may have inspired the invention of the handkerchief and brought the rediscovery of medieval literature's most overlooked writer: Geoffrey Chaucer's elder brother Dennis. Then again it may all have been cooked up by a guy in a shed somewhere in England.

A brilliantly witty romp through an alternative history in which the fate of the feudal system is interwoven with the the burning question of how best to deal with boogers! It will appeal to any kids who like horrid histories and to any adults who can remember what it's like to be a kid. Geoffrey Chaucer would have loved it!

First things first. I picked this up because the title and premise were intriguing. I am not a 12 year old boy. However, I have a grandson that age. This would be the perfect story for him, or any other kid who laughs when someone mentions farts and boogers or underpants. It is written with an eye towards the historical period, yet is still immensely entertaining. Even if you don't have a kid at home, read it. If you don't at least get a giggle out of it, there's something wrong with you.
