My 3 year old and I read constantly. I get really tired of the same old books. When we read this book (my husband , mother in law,son, and self) we all got sick to our stomachs from laughing so hard. I never get tired of it and everybody enjoys it. It is SOOO CREATIVE. I plan to purchase more copies to use as adult gifts! It is full of "potty humor" written in a tasteful manner!

I am amazed by the talent of a man who can write this great funny book on a taboo subject, and can also write the poignant "Love You Forever". Robert Munsch can be on my guest list any time!

As usual, the author has made us look at our foibles humourously. I have purchased multiple copies of this book, and yet never have one to call my own. If you have ever heard your parents say those magic words. "nice families don't..." you will identify! Recommended reading for stuffed shirts, children, adults and farts!

My daughter was in second grade and having difficulty reading. Her teacher suggested she read aloud, being a perfectionist this solution was less than suitable. I brought home this book and told her that she must read it to her father. She read the first page saw the "f" word and started to giggle. It broke the ice. Although the book didn't solve her reading problems, after reading it she was more willing to give other books a chance.

I first purchased this book years ago when I was a nanny working my way through college to entertain the children in my care. Now that I have my own children, I have brought the book out again and my son loves it. Farts have always been a long standing joke in my family and I have given all of the children in my family copies of this book as a gift. It is now a running joke among us that "Good families don't have Farts!" Children and adults will all love this book and it will be a book that gets passed down among generations. I have also used this book in my counseling practice. It is a great book to use to discuss with children the secrets that "good families" keep. Can't praise this book enough!

My sister (a teacher) purchased this book as a Christmas gift for my husband (a gas-passer supreme)! We read it aloud with all the family present and laughed until we cried. It is now in our 17-month old son's book collection, and we still laugh every time we read it!

OK, maybe this isn't appropriate subject matter in most (good) families, but it is *really* funny! My daughter Carmen had this book given to her as a gift. She really didn't care much for books at the time. She got kind of interested when she saw that the little girl in the book was also named Carmen. She was almost unable to contain herself when she saw the book was about farts! She couldn't wait to read the book to her dad, grandma & sister. I recommend it!

Like most Robert Munsch books, all of us enjoy reading this book: me, my husband and especially our five year old son. It is imaginative and funny, and every once in a while, one of us will exclaim "What would the Canadians think?" and the rest of us laugh.
