About the Book:

Let's Do A Thing! (Victor Shmud, Total Expert #1):

MEET VICTOR, TOTAL EXPERT IN EVERYTHING

(except Guy Who Cleans Up Bedrooms)

With his confidence, imagination, and trusty sidekick Dumpylumps (who happens to be a duck), there's no telling what trouble he'll get into. Lucky for him, he has a knack for getting himself out of trouble, too. So when he finds himself at the center of an intergalactic conflict, he's pretty sure the only way out is his top-secret kitchen concoction; his teacher, the extraordinary Mrs. Nozzleburp; and the help of his friend Patti.

Will he be able to save the day and find his way back to class? And just what is he going to do next?

Night of the Living Things (Victor Shmud, Total Expert #2):

Fresh from his intergalactic adventure, Victor is casting about for something new to apply his formidable know how to. The obvious next step is cello-making. However, the not so mellifluous sounds that emanate from his creations are enough to wake the dead. That's right, there are zombies let loose and it's up to Victor, Patty, and the long-suffering, always faithful Dumpylumps to not get eaten.
