Review: Fart Squad by Seamus Pilger

Fart Squad

It was an average day at Harry Buttz Elementary until . . . KABLAM! The five-bean burritos churning in Darren Stonkadopolis's stomach exploded in a fart so volcanic it melted his desk seat, knocked out his whole class, and got him sent to the nurse—and he's not alone.
Something fishy is going on in Buttzville. And it's up to Darren and his three farting friends to combine their potty powers to get to the bottom of this evil plot—before it's too late. With their scent-sei, Janitor Stan, at their side, the Fart Squad has to learn to harness the powers between their butt cheeks. And then let it RIIIP.

Like most librarians, I am always on the look-out for series that will interest preteen boys...and with a premise like this, the target audience is pretty obvious! Fortunately, it's not just bathroom humor - the writing is good enough that I can pass it along without qualms, and entertaining enough that even this old lady enjoyed the read. A good investment for any school or public library - and, either spring for the hardcover, or get several copies, because this one is going to get passed around and hidden under blankets for nighttime reading!

  1. This had its moments, but I'm still waiting for THE epic comic fart novel. This one just wasn't the one yet. I continue to live in hope!
