Okay, guys — you can cut the act. I’m on to you. You pretend to be normal book-loving kids, but really you’re evil supervillains in disguise, right?
No? Well, if you have even a smidge of bad attitude, then I’ve got a mentor for you: Vordak the Incomprehensible. His newest book, Time Travel Trouble, comes out next week. And to get ready, I suggest you brush up on some of his previous books:
Long-time Kidsmomo readers will remember when we first introduced Vordak and his debut book, How to Grow Up and Rule the World — a manual on being truly terrible and absolutely awful. (Did I mention Vordak loves alliteration as much as he loves plotting to take over the planet?)
Since our interview with the furious fiend, he’s gone on to rule the school in a second book — appropriately named Rule the School.
And Vordak also has a third offering, Double Trouble, focused on his most recent scheme: cloning a 12-year-old-version of himself. As you can imagine, things don’t go exactly the way Vordak wants — with hilarious results!
So if you’re looking to feed that little bit of evil in you (and also have a good laugh), then it’s time to study up with Vordak’s nefarious notes! And hurry up, because Book 4: Time Travel Trouble hits bookshelves next Tuesday (August 27th).
Of course, if you’re already an expert evildoer, then by all means, please share some of your tips in the comments! Or if you’ve already read any of Vordak’s books, you can leave your thoughts on those in the comments instead — but keep in mind that Vordak might just exact revenge if you praise him too much! After all, that would be nice, and supervillains are NOT nice…
According to Vordak’s SuperVillain Name Generator, Karen’s malicious moniker is Malzok the Unaffectionately Unaffectionate. What’s yours?
