The Fart Monster is back again in the hilarious new chapter book series. These books will have children crying with laughter. Anyone who has spent time with a young child will know that toilet humour keeps them entertained for hours!
In The Crash Landing, the Fart Monster makes a sudden appearance in Ben’s backyard one day. Soon they are inseparable – despite the obvious drawbacks – but young boys are not bothered by a bit of extra smelliness. Or are they?
In The New School, Ben has just moved to Stone Beach and his bedroom is filled with boxes that need to be unpacked. Where is his school bag? The Fart Monster is keen to help and starts to randomly tip over boxes until the entire bedroom is covered in stuff!
Ben isn’t concerned about the mess, but he does start to worry when Fart Monster announces that he will be attending the new school along with him. Ben’s not that keen to arrive at his new school with a fart cloud trailing him and…what if the Fart Monster farted in front of the new kids and they thought it was Ben?
How was he going to fit in? Would his new teacher Mr Bendentoot like fart jokes?
The Fart Monster is keeping Ben on his toes at every turn. Surely the Fart Monster couldn’t fart in class – not on his first day! How would he ever make friends?
Filled with lots of colour and fun these books will be grabbed and devoured by the 5+ reader. Large text and great illustrations will make sure that little ones new to reading will feel comfortable tackling it on their own.
Expect to have the kids quoting lines such as ‘smell you later’ and ‘gotta get downwind’ for weeks after reading – a small price to pay to get them reading and loving it!
