Overview

He's beheld the butt and offered on the scoop on poop. Now Artie Bennett takes young readers on a discovery of those little (and not so little) puffs that exit from our mouths and duffs-the burp, the belch, and the fart!

With Bennett's signature combination of real science and zany rhyme, kids will learn the how, why, and where of gas-tastic eruptions made by people and animals, such as:

  • why we can't burp while on our backs
  • which animals can't "cut the cheese"
  • how fish communicate via burp bubbles
  • why soda and burps go together
  • who farts more - boys or girls

Capped off with a spread on "Fart-tastic Facts & Burp-tacular Bits," this amazing, amusing mix of humor and nonfiction is an ideal draw for reluctant readers, classroom units on body science - and kids who just think burps and farts are funny!

Given visual gas-pression via Pranas T. Naujokaitis's exuberant cartoon-style illustrations, look for this to be a hit with both kids and educators.

For as Mr. Bennett puts it:

Cows and pigs, crude or classy,

Kids, grown-ups, we're all...

GASSY!
