The great thing about the Grosse brothers is that they're not just all about the farts. They're intrepid problem-solvers, they face all the travails of kids their age (sibling rivalry, school competition) with courage and integrity, and they support and encourage each other. Who knew that a story about intestinal gas could have a moral backbone? But to the grouchy reviewer who didn't get it: it's not Proust, dude. It's a whimsical story set in a slapstick fantastical world, geared towards beginning readers (the comic book panel inserts are especially good). That the author manages to compress so much exciting plot and unusual characters into a short number of pages is a testament to her ability and vision. The Grosse brothers are not just a one-fart pony!

This is my son's favorite book! He wants to read it almost every night, which is terrific, since he isn't much of a reader. We both really enjoy the funny situations those guys get into and the creative way they solve problems (use your strength - farting!). I can't wait for the next one to come out. Go Grosse!

It rings true for normal kids, and adults, since grossing people out is pretty much what guys do - it is a art form for some, especially Stan, our hero. I am glad we found a book and an author that can make us laugh.

I don't understand not liking this book. It's a fun little tale about two brothers working together to defeat the snotty girl at school. Yeah, there's farting, but it's done in a funny way I hadn't seen before. It even teaches a little science (not that the average boy would realize it).

I bought this for my video-game-addicted nephew and he loves it. Reads it over and over. Can't wait for the next book to come out. Mixing in comics with text helps a lot, I think. His mom's thrilled - anything that gets him reading is gold to her.

I did a little research on the author, Annie Auerbach. Turns out she's written dozens of books and has been on the New York Times bestseller list.
