Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2009 Kids' List
“Twelve-year-old Oliver Watson is set not only to take over the world, but to win the upcoming middle school election. He may not be able to convince all of his fellow classmates to vote for him, but he will make every reader laugh (out loud, no less) until they plead 'uncle' and pledge to pass the book onto the guy at the next locker.”
-- Lisa Baudoin, Books & Company, Oconomowoc, WI


Description

Family Guy meets Election in this hilarious young adult debut!

Twelve-year-old Oliver Watson’s got the IQ of a grilled cheese sandwich. Or so everyone in Omaha thinks. In reality, Oliver’s a mad evil genius on his way to world domination, and he’s used his great brain to make himself the third-richest person on earth! Then Oliver’s father—and archnemesis—makes a crack about the upcoming middle school election, and Oliver takes it as a personal challenge. He’ll run, and he’ll win! Turns out, though, that overthrowing foreign dictators is actually way easier than getting kids to like you. . . Can this evil genius win the class presidency and keep his true identity a secret, all in time to impress his dad?
