Product Details


“A hilarious, exciting roller coaster of evasions, captures, and escapes…Snappy dialogue, humor, and clever plotting provide a rollicking adventure, with a subtext reminding readers to be sensitive to the feelings, concerns, and abilities of others.”

“The pacing is lively and the dialogue is brisk and humorous…”
School Library Journal

“Like its predecessor [The Nose from Jupiter], this wonderful story is filled with memorable characters, irreverent wit, exciting plot twists, and some touching moments as well…Any teen reader with a taste for the absurd will love the latest adventures of Alan Dingwall and his alter ego, Norbert.”

“Scrimger’s dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny and the action is fast-paced and slick.”
City Parent

“A Nose for Adventure will again delight Scrimger fans with both its outrageous sense of humour and his ability to use humour to look beneath the surface of the lives of his characters.”
Children’s Book News

“Never a dull moment!”
