Nothing was making a soundnot the twelve sets of brown wooden climbing bars along the walls, not the old pommel horse covered in cracked leather, or the eight gray well worn ropes hanging motionless from the ceiling, or the sixteen boys and girls who made up the Dlgen School Marching Band and who were now all staring at Conductor Madsen.Ready , Mr Madsen called out He raised his baton, and squinted at them through his dark aviator sunglasses Mr Madsen, with dread in his eyes, searched hopefully for Nilly He knew the other kids in the band teased the redheaded trumpet player because he was so tiny, which of course he was But unlike the other band members, the little guy had some musical ability Maybe he could turn things around today Since Mr Madsen didnt see Nilly, he looked over at the only friend Nilly hadLisa, who played the clarinet She was the only one in the band who always practiced at home Maybe there was hope after all.Set Everyone put their instruments to their lips It was so quiet that the sounds of the warm October afternoon outside could be heard birds singing, a lawn mower humming, and the laughter of little, snotty nosed kids playing But inside the gym it was dark And it was going to get even darker.Go Mr Madsen yelled, swinging his baton in a majestic arc.At first nothing happened, and the only things you could hear were still birds singing, lawn mowing, and snotty nosed kids laughing Then a trumpet gave a wobbly bleat, a clarinet squeaked timidly, and there was a tentative thump on a bass drum An unexpected beat on a snare drum made a French horn splutter out a belching sound, and in the back of the band something big emitted a snort, one that made Lisa think of a blue whale that had just surfaced after a week underwater But all that blowing still hadnt produced an actual note, and Mr Madsens face was already starting to turn that color red that warned he was about to lose his temper.Two three Mr Madsen screamed, swinging his baton as if it were a whip and the band members were the slave crew manning the oars of a Roman galley Well, play for Heavens sake This is supposed to be the Marseillaise, the French national anthem Give it some dignity But there was no dignity in this The faces in front of Mr Madsen stared stiffly at the music on the stands in front of them or their eyes were squeezed shut, as if they were sitting on the toilet, straining.Mr Madsen gave up and dropped his arms just as the tuba finally emitted a sounda deep, forlorn mooing sound.Stop, stop Mr Madsen yelled, and then waited until the tuba ran out of air again If anyone from France had just heard you guys, they would have beheaded you first and then burned you at the stake Lets show some respect for the Marseillaise As Mr Madsen continued to chew them out, Lisa leaned over to the seat next to her and whispered, I brought that postcard from Doctor Proctor Theres something weird about it.The voice that answered her came from behind a beat up trumpet If its like the last one, sounds like a normal postcard if you ask me Dear Lisa and Nilly, Greetings from Paris Sincerely, Doctor Proctor Isnt that pretty much what you said he wrote Well, yeah, but The only thing thats not normal about it is that a person who is as weird and eccentric as Doctor Proctor would write such a normal postcard.They were interrupted by Mr Madsens thunderous voice Nilly Is that you Are you down there A voice replied from behind the battered trumpet, Aye aye, Sergeant Get up so we can see you, Nilly Yes, sir, oh great commander of delightful music and all the notes of the universe And a little redheaded boy with big freckles and a broad grin jumped up from behind the music stand, onto the chair Actually, he wasnt just small, he was tiny And his hair wasnt just red, it was bright red And his grin wasnt just broad, it practically split his little head in two And his freckles werent just big, they were well, all right, they were just big.Play the Marseillaise for us, Nilly Mr Madsen growled The way its supposed to be played.By your command, great mother of all conductors and king of all military band leaders north of the Sahara and east of theStop wasting our time and start playing So Nilly started playing A warm, resounding melody welled up under the roof of the gymnasium and out the window on this warm fall afternoon When they heard this beautiful music, the birds fell silent, feeling ashamed of their own songs At least thats what Lisa was thinking as she sat there listening to her tiny neighbor and very best friend playing his grandfathers old trumpet Lisa liked her clarinet, but somehow there was something special about the trumpet And it wasnt that hard to play, either Nilly had taught her to play one song on the trumpet, the Norwegian national anthem Of course she didnt play it as well as Nilly, but secretly she dreamed that one day she would play their national anthem in front of a big audience Imagine it But imagining is imagining and dreaming is just dreaming.Good, Nilly called Mr Madsen And now lets all join in with Nilly One, two, three And the Dlgen School Marching Band joined in Staggered, tripped, and stumbled in Drums, saxophones, French horn, glockenspiel, and cymbals It sounded like someone had turned a kitchen upside down and now everything was tumbling out of the cupboards and drawers Then the bass drum and tuba got going The whole room started shaking The wooden climbing bars on the wall started chattering, the ropes were hanging at an angle as if there were near gale force winds, and the worn pommel horse starting hopping across the floor, inching its way toward the exit as if it were trying to escape.When they finally finished the Marseillaise, everything got quiet both inside the gym and out No birds singing, no children laughing, just the echo of the evil twinsTruls and Trymsfinal desperate blows to the drumheads and the eardrums.Thanks, Mr Madsen moaned I think thats enough for today Ill see you guys on Monday.IM SERIOUS THERES something stranger about this new card Lisa said as she and Nilly were walking home along Cannon Avenue It was starting to get dark earlier as winter approached, and they liked that, especially Nilly He thought the light summer nights they had this far north were a drag, kind of a below average invention But the warm, dark autumn nights with lots of darkness to provide cover for a little bit of neighborhood apple stealingthat was a brilliant invention Actually, it was almost as good as something Doctor Proctor might come up with Because in Nillys opinion, the professor was the best inventor in the world True, the rest of the world didnt think Doctor Proctor had invented anything of any value, but what did they know Who invented the strongest fart powder in the world, for example Of course, what was even important was that Doctor Proctor made the best Jell O in the world, he was the worlds best friend and neighbor, and had taught Nilly and Lisa that they shouldnt let it bother them that the rest of the world thought they were a team of pathetic losers A team consisting of a tiny boy with red sideburns, a timid girl with pigtails, and a much crazier than average professor with sooty motorcycle goggles.We know something they dont, Proctor liked to say We know that when friends promise never to stop helping each other, one plus one plus one is much than three.Truer words had never been spoken But it had to be said that as a friend, the professor wasnt much of a letter writer They had received only a couple of measly postcards in the three months that had passed since the professor had climbed on his motorcycle, put on his leather helmet, and said good bye as he left Oslo to drive to Paris determined to find the great love of his life, Juliette Margarine.Doctor Proctor had lost her under mysterious circumstances many, many years before when he had been a student in France Lisa and Nilly had only seen the picture of Juliette, from back when she and Proctor had been dating, on the wall of the professors lab But they had looked so happy in the picture that it brought tears to Lisas eyes Lisa had actually been the one to convince Doctor Proctor to go back and look for her.This one is too strange Lisa insisted Just look for yourself.Nilly looked at the postcard she handed him.Hm, he mumbled He stopped right under the next streetlight and studied it intently while mumbling several hms which all sounded thoughtful and intelligent.Its from Paris, Lisa said, pointing to the black and white picture that looked like it had been taken on an overcast morning It showed a large, open square and aside from a bunch of people walking around with parasols and top hats, the square seemed strangely empty The only way you could tell that it was actually the world renowned capital of France was that the word PARIS was printed across the bottom of the picture.Are you seeing what Im seeing Nilly mumbled, lost in thought.Which is what That it seems like something is missing from this square Well, I guess, I mean in the picture as a whole.Maybe, Lisa said And when she thought about it, she realized that Nilly was right, but she couldnt quite put her finger on what it was.Plus the card is a little warped , Nilly said, carefully pinching it Like it somehow got soaking wet and then dried out again So, tell me, were you standing in the shower when you read this Obviously not, Lisa said It was like that when it got here.Aha Nilly exclaimed, raising a tiny index finger that had a bitten down nail I, Mastermind Nilly, have yet again cleverly come up with what must surely be the answer to this riddle This card mustve gotten wet in his lab in Paris Lisa rolled her eyes And how do you know that Elementary, my dear Lisa It says so right here on the card Read it for yourself Nilly passed the card back to her.But Lisa didnt need to read it She had already read the short message twelve times and knew it by heart But since you havent read the postcard, here it is He says hes working on some kind of new DNA invention, right Im sure theres lots of ways a postcard could get wet in a laboratory So what Nilly asked Feeling satisfied, he passed the card back and studied the rest of his bitten down nails, looking for something new to sink his teeth into.Its not how it got wet thats strange, Lisa said Its what he wrote Like, for example, who are Asil and Yllin Maybe he forgot our names, Nilly said.Thats not it He wrote Lisa Pedersen just fine in the address, Lisa said.Hm, Nilly mumbled, and it didnt sound quite as intelligent as his earlier hms.Asil is Lisa spelled backward, Lisa realized.Elementary, my dear, Nilly said, and then he quickly tried reading it backward Asil was indeed Lisa Well but then whats Yllin he asked.Guess Lisa groaned, rolling her eyes.Hm maybe Lisa upside down Its Nilly backward Heh heh, Nilly said, flashing a row of tiny zigzag teeth Just kidding Elementary But his earlobes were a tad red Well, then the problem is solved So what are you going on and on about Thats not whats strange Lisa shouted in exasperation.So what is strange, then The rest of what he wrote Nilly flung up his short arms He told us hes working on some kind of new DNA project Hes a crazy scientist inventor guy, isnt he The plehdee is a kind of French platypus Theyre very unique animals Theyre the only mammals that lay eggs Plus theyre one of the only venomous mammals Im sure Proctor could learn a lot from their DNA Platypuses are all over the place in Australia, but the French ones are on the verge of extinction There used to be tons of them swimming around in the Seine but theyre kind of absentminded and theres so much boat traffic on the river what with all the tourist cruises that the poor plehdees keep getting bonked on the head by the boats Anyway, its really not that strange that an inventor who happened to be in Paris would see what he could learn from platypus DNA, is it A French platypus Lisa said, sounding skeptical.Yup, Nilly said Featured on page six hundred twenty of Animals You Wish Didnt Exist.Lisa sighed Nilly often referred to this enormous book that his grandfather had apparently had on his bookshelf Animals You Wish Didnt Exist.Well what about EMOH EmOC Lisa asked Whats that supposed to mean Simple, Nilly said EMOH EmOC is the actual section of DNA code that Doctor Proctor discovered Maybe thats what makes the platypus venomous.Lisa gave Nilly a dubious look And whos this ANNA W person Didnt the professor go to France to find Juliette Margarine Nilly shrugged Maybe Annas just a friend or someone whos helping him with his research or something.Rubbish Baloney Lisa growled First of all, why would the professor go all the way to Paris to search for his long lost Juliette and then spend all his time with someone named Anna Second of all, I dont think PLEHdEE is spelled right If its French, wouldnt it be spelled pldille or something And if the professor were studying it, wouldnt he know how to spell it Hm, Nilly said, scratching his left sideburn and sounding even less thoughtful and intelligent than he had during his earlier hms.Lisa sighed, sounding discouraged And whats the last part supposed to mean, the part that says SIhT DAER Nilly chuckled condescendingly Ah, but my dear peanut brain, thats the easiest one of all to figure out Obviously he means sit there Proctor obviously trained one of the plehdee plehdees plaudeux Im not very good with French plurals, but anyway you get my point He must have trained one of them to sit on command and, drenched after a nice swim in the Seine, the platypus obviously sat on the postcard and got it all wet Okay, so maybe its a little bit gross that a wet platypus has been sitting on this postcard, but obviously its not like its dangerous or anything.Enough already, Nilly Lisa warned.Nilly looked at her as if he had no idea what she meant, but obediently kept quiet.Theres something else here, she said.Really Nilly asked What else I dont know, but something Like that stamp, for example Dont you think theres something weird about it Nope, I have to say that a square stamp with a perforated edge and a picture of a serious looking guy doesnt exactly make me jump out of my chair in surprise.But did you see what it says on the stamp No, Nilly was forced to admit Lisa passed the card back to him.Felix Faure, Nilly read Well, thats obviously the name of the guy And 1888, thats probably the year of the stamp Ew Ew Lisa asked.Yeah, imagine licking a stamp thats over a hundred years old.Okay, whatever, but do you think it looks like its a hundred years old Nilly studied the stamp closely and had to admit that Lisa was definitely onto something Aside from the fact that it was a little warped from having gotten wet, it looked brand new The colors werent faded and the edges looked crisp and fresh.Maybe its a fake, or a reproduction, he said, but he didnt sound quite so confident any.You think Lisa asked.Nilly shook his head as if to say maybe not Yeah, there is something here, he said.Everything about this is upside down, Lisa said.I thought you just said everything was backward, Nilly pointed out.What did you just say Lisa asked.What you said.Which was That everything was backward, Nilly said You know, the writing.Thats it, Lisa said, snatching the card back from him Thats it She studied it And then gasped.What is it Nilly asked, concerned.I think I think Doctor Proctors in danger, she stammered, suddenly very pale Read the whole card backward.Nilly did And you can too, of course Right now, for instance DONE DID YOU understand it All right, neither did Nilly, really READ ThIS, he read W ANNA COmE HOME AND WEN EEdHELP, NiLLY LISA.So thats what it says, Lisa moaned Something is very wrong.Yeah, Nilly said ANNA W isnt actually a name, it means WANNA And it should be WE NEED instead of WEN EED.Not that Lisa cried out Dont you get anything Uh, no, Nilly admitted, scratching his sideburns For example, I dont get what he means by READ ThIS The card We did that.Lisa stared at the postcard, concentrating hard Look at the arrow, she said Its pointing at the stamp.Nilly stuck his right index finger into his right ear and twisted it around and around while squeezing his right eye shut This always helped Nilly thinkit was like turning the ignition key in a car it sort of got his brain started There was an audible plop sound when he pulled his finger back out.Ive got it, Nilly said, examining his finger with fascination The card is a secret message to us, something no one else is supposed to find out about Proctor knew that a smart guy like me would realize that there was something strange about the way it was written.Lisa rolled her eyes, but Nilly pretended not to notice.READ ThIS and an arrow pointing to the stamp, he continued That means that the rest of the message is under the stamp We just have to take it off.That is exactly what I have been thinking for a while now, Lisa said.Nilly passed the card back to Lisa with a satisfied sniff Good thing you have me here to crack these secret codes, dont you think 2008 H Aschehoug Co.The Fart Powder was such a successful invention that Doctor Proctor, Nilly, and Lisa couldnt stop there Next up a time travelling bathtub You just hop in, lather up the Time Soap, and wish for where youd like to go Doctor Proctor has plans for this new invention You see, he lost his true love years ago, when Juliette Margarine married an evil count The good Doctor has never quite gotten over this, and he s going back to change it But when things go wrong, it s up to Nilly and Lisa to travel back in time to right all wrongs and reunite the two lovebirds Nothing is quite so simple in a Jo Nesbo book Enter a herd of hippos, a scheming assistant, and Time Soap that keeps going awry, sending Nilly and Lisa to the storming of the Bastille Fortunately, as in every Jo Nesbo book, the Fart Powder solves everything.
