Behind the Laughter
- This book is the only one of the Angelica Button series whose title isn't a parody to any of Harry Potter books. However, its title suggests that it may be a parody of the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; in which Harry Potter sacrifices himself to destroy Lord Voldemort, yet he survives the killing curse.
