The first Doctor Proctor book received a nomination at the 2007 Ark Children's Awards.
When a Russian billionaire robs the Norwegian Gold Reserve and melts the last remaining gold bar into the Premier Soccer League trophy, it's up to Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa to get the trophy and save Norway.
But with a failed break-in attempt into the billionaire's subterranean gold-melting lab and the Norwegian Gold Reserve Inspection only three days away, the only way to retrieve the trophy is to win it back. Hoping to prevent national panic and uproar, Nilly and Lisa join the Rotten Ham soccer team and use the Fartonaut Powder, along with a handful of Doctor Proctor's other wacky inventions, to try and lead the hopeless underdog team to victory before time runs out.
