As you might expect, this book, which is aimed at readers around 7 – 9, has caused much hilarity in the house from the minute it arrived last week – who knew that there were enough interesting facts on farts to fill 15 chapters?! And that’s the great and clever thing about it: the kids (my 7-year-old in particular) have absorbed so much information while laughing their heads off, that I don’t even think they’ve realised that they are learning lots of new stuff about science and nature. Favourite chapters so far are deadly dog farts, weaponised farting and aminal fart extremes – even poor Grandpa has been FaceTimed this weekend to be educated on various farty facts! A word of warning, though, don’t try reading this at bedtime because your kids will end up so giddy that all thoughts of sleep will go right out of the window…
