It's been almost a decade since the Fart Monster first entered the world, now he's back in this hilarious new book from bestselling creators Tim Miller and Matt Stanton.

When you've got a problem, who do you call?

The fart monster has spent years releasing a barrage of bottom bazookas onto the world. Now, in a surprising twist, he's here to help put an end to those roars from the rear!

Follow along at home as the fart monster leads us through his DIY guide to easing the common fart.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

From Down Under (heh) comes this "instructional" manual on how to stop your farts.

Great for prepubescent boys. Probably a bit of a miss for everyone else.

Aside from the various euphemisms for farting and a few interesting factoids, there's not that much to this book. The story is kind of weak. The illustrations are just okay. It sort of feels like a missed opportunity here; kids want to read about farts so they'll pick this up... only to find that there isn't much to this other than hot air.

Yes, sometimes farts are funny. But this book almost made them boring.

Premise: 1/5
Meter: n/a
Writing: 3/5
Illustrations: 2/5
Originality: 2/5

Enjoyment: 2/5

Overall: 2 out of 5
