Overview Gutta Krutt og gledesdreperen

The Dynamite Dudes – Alex, Nikk and Proffen – attend the world’s best school with the world’s best head teacher and their lives are really quite enjoyable. One day when they arrive at school, the head teacher announces that he’s going on a long holiday with his husband. But the dudes need not worry! The head teacher has hired an incredibly talented substitute named Lars-Rune Simonsen. It doesn’t take long after Lars-Rune arrives before strange things start happening at the school. The teachers behave weirdly, almost like robots. The children stop laughing and playing during recess. The Dynamite Dudes even notice an 8-year-old who’s reading The Financial Times! Something is very wrong.

The dudes decide to take the matter into their own hands, but that turns out to be easier said than done. Because who is following them through the streets of town? What’s really going on at school? And what happens when one of the brothers disappears without a trace?

With the help of an old map of the underground tunnel system under the town, the chemistry kit they got for Christmas and Nikk’s large online following, the Dynamite Dudes unravel a plot bigger and more dangerous than they could ever imagine.

The Dynamite Dudes and The Buzzkiller is the first book in a funny and totally crazy series. The book is easy to read and illustrated throughout, perfect for readers of the Treehouse series by Andy Griffiths.

Reviews Gutta Krutt og gledesdreperen

Rare påfunn og lokalpatriotisme 15.11.2023

«Gutta krutt» er som en pakke uforutsigbare kinaputter som smeller herlig høyt når de først virker.

«åtteåringen hjemme slukte boka i løpet av to kvelder. I en tilværelse der mange foreldre er på desperat jakt etter annen tidtrøyte enn skjerm, skal ikke slikt kimses av.»

Jonas Bals, Bokmagasinet, Klassekampen
