Vordak the Incomprehensible: New Book This Month!

August 20th, 2013 by

vordak-time-travel-troubleOkay, 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

Supervillain/Author Interview: Vordak the Incomprehensible

September 15th, 2010 by

A couple weeks ago, we were kidnapped by an evil mastermind and forced to post about his new book, How to Grow Up and Rule the World. Er, we mean… we were contacted by a friendly minion and then happily announced the opportunity to interview Vordak the Incomprehensible, supervillain and newly published author. Yay? We mean, YAY!

And in fact, EXTRA YAY because today’s the day we get to share Vordak’s wisdom with you!

But first, in case you need a refresher, How to Grow Up and Rule the World is a thorough manual on everything you need to know to become a dastardly master of the universe — from ideas for a killer costume (literally) to tips on communicating with your arch-nemesis. We really gobbled this book up! Then again, if we hadn’t, we would have been gobbled up by the sharks swimming around under the cage we were in, so that may not be the most objective review…

But now we’re safe at home and truly excited to present to you… our Q&A with Vordak the Incomprehensible!

Why should kids read your book?

Vordak: Because if they try to eat it, they’ll miss all the great illustrations.

What’s the #1 most important tip in your book? If kids only remember one piece of your advice, what should it be?

Vordak: Let me get this straight — you’re asking me to GIVE AWAY my #1 piece of advice? For FREE? That may work with other authors, but not Vordak the Incomprehensible. It appears you think me a fool. I’ll tell you what. I’ll give you my #56 piece of advice, but only if everyone who reads it agrees to send me $25 in the mail.

Which of your evil feats are you most proud of?

Vordak: I would have to say Dancing With The Stars. That was MY idea, you know. MUAHAHAHAHA!!

Vordak Wants to Hear From YOU!

August 30th, 2010 by

Attention all aspiring super villains: Do you point and snicker when someone falls? Is teasing your sibling one of your greatest joys in life? Have you been practicing your maniacal laugh in your spare time? Then we’ve got a treat for you: Vordak the Incomprehensible, the evil genius behind the new book How to Grow Up and Rule the World, has chosen Kidsmomo for the first stop on his blog tour!

If you’ve read the book, then you know that Vordak’s mission is to educate a new generation of bad guys. How to Grow Up and Rule the World is an amazing guide to perfecting your true nefarious nature — including instructions on how to create your own evil name, advice on choosing the right lair for your business, and tips on how to hire a good henchman (and by “good,” we of course mean “bad”).

However, if the book just isn’t enough for you, now’s YOUR chance to ask Vordak your burning questions. He’s agreed to do an interview with Kidsmomo, and he’s even deigning to answer questions submitted by our followers — that means you guys! (Guess he’ll take his minions wherever he can find them…)

So leave a comment with your question for Vordak (and include your first name, your age, and your state). We’ll sort through your submissions and pass along the best questions to Vordak for his evil expertise.

Check back here on September 15th for his answers! That is, if Vordak hasn’t blown us all to bits by then…

Update 9/15/10: Attention all minions! You can now read our interview with Vordak &#151 including answers to YOUR questions!
