He's beheld the butt and offered 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 fart 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: Every living person farts. Nincompoops and those with smarts. Opera singers, lumberjacks, bell ringers, and quarterbacks. Bullfighters and acrobats, skywriters and diplomats! All must fart--it's nature's way. We all "break wind" both night and day.

About the Author

Artie Bennett is an executive copy editor by day and a writer by night. He is the author of a quartet of hilarious picture books: The Butt Book, his first “mature” work and winner of the Reuben Award; Poopendous!, his “number two” picture book; Peter Panda Melts Down!, an adorable departure from derrières and doo;  and the explosively funny Belches, Burps, and Farts—Oh My! The merriment continues in 2018 when Artie will publish a riotous joke and riddle book: The Universe’s Greatest Dinosaur Jokes and Pre-Hysteric Puns. A companion book, The Universe’s Greatest School Jokes and Rip-Roaring Riddles, publishes in 2019.

He and his wife, Leah, live deep in the bowels of Brooklyn, New York, where he spends his time moving his car to satisfy the rigorous demands of alternate-side-of-the-street parking and shaking his fist at his neighbors. The Show Me Librarian says: “Bennett’s use of rhyme is excellent; his stanzas flow and exude joviality in a manner that few writers since Dr. Seuss have truly mastered. Simply put, these books are a joy.” The Huffington Post says: “It appears there is no topic Mr. Bennett can’t make funny and educational.”
