Book Description

Someone has been farting up a storm at school and everyone thinks Keith Emerson is to blame. Unfortunately for Keith, it has earned him the nickname "S.B.D." (silent but deadly). To make matters worse, Keith's dad is a self proclaimed "Fart Machine" who really stinks it up at home. With the science fair quickly approaching, Keith decides he has had enough. He comes up with a science fair project idea to turn the foul smell of human gas into something sweet smelling. The idea lands him in the principal's office, and in big trouble with his mom. With the help of his little sister Emma, his dad, his crazy grandma, and Benjamin Franklin (great American scientist), Keith will attempt to make the greatest scientific discovery of all time, the cure for the common fart.


Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–5—Keith Emerson is being blamed for passing some pretty raunchy gas in his classroom. To make matters worse, he's been given a new nickname, "S.B.D." (Silent But Deadly), by the student body. This moniker inspires Keith to come up with a pretty unique science fair project that will, hopefully, find a cure for the foul smell of the common fart, something American Statesman Benjamin Franklin attempted over 200 years earlier. Narrator Nick Podehl does a superb job of bringing this production to life, creating unique and entertaining voices. This humorous, albeit somewhat crude story, will appeal to reluctant readers and fans of the popular Captain Underpants series who are looking for something both silly and fun.—Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY

Review

"I never thought I'd be the sort of mom to buy a book called Sweet Farts for my child. I never thought I'd invest in a series called Dumb Bunnies. I recently purchased both for Christmas."
-Susan Carpenter LA Times

This is an easy reading, high interest, fast paced chapter book that could also be used for struggling readers similar to the Wimpy Kids and Catpain Underpants series.-Best Seller World blog review by Teri Davis

The day we received the set my son was super excited! He started reading right away - and instantly he was hooked. Seeing as he had read all of the Captain Underpants and Wimpy Kid books it was great to see him excited about a new fiction title. -Pretty Pink Momma blog review

Even my "girly girl" thought the Sweet Farts books were hysterical. It did not take her long to read all three, and I even caught her sneaking the first one to school as apparently she was already lending it to her best friend. - Moscato Mom blog review

As a mom the book held many fabulous lessons from dealing with pressure at school to the amazing ability kids have to make a difference in our world. It also covers basic scientific method in such a way that you don't even realize you're getting a bit of a science lesson as you go. But over all its a fun, inspiring read. - Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy blog review

You won't even know you're reading it's like a movie or a great dream! My point is this book is so perfect and funny for reading that it's not a book! It's better, like a movie! Or a fairytale! Anyway, you gotta get this book. Don't waist your time thinking, while you could be enjoying and laughing along with this outstanding book. Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Humor and History - What A Great Read! February 1, 2009
Format:Paperback
Sweet Farts
What kid won't pick up a book that has "Farts" on the cover? I know as a teacher and grandmother I'm always looking for a well written book that even reluctant readers will engage in. Well "Sweet Farts" hooks kids with a very funny story line, lovable characters (I'm especially fond of the grandma), authentic connections to science and social studies (who would have ever thought that Benjamin Franklin really DID write about farts!) and the universal theme of making the best out of a bad situation. I hope this author continues writing about Keith growing up and solving real problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read for Third Graders November 5, 2009
By Felicia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My third grader finished the latest installment of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and was utterly forlorn. He's a good reader, but somehow he would rather play Madden 10 than pick up a book. I searched Amazon and was lead to SweetFarts. It was a fantastic recommendation! The story encompasses the frustration and pressure of being teased at school, the frustration of having to do an assignment that seems onerous and painful AND a fantastic resolution to both of those issues! With the issue of passing gas liberally sprinkled throughout the tale, it kept my somewhat skeptical third grader glued to the pages.

The vocabulary is accessible, but challenging and the moral to the story is great. I highly recommend this book to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2nd - 4th grade audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for a young reader who likes a good laugh! December 5, 2008
Format:Paperback
GREAT KIDS BOOK! I bought this book for my nephew who is 12 and he loved it! I ended up reading some of the chapters with him and we were both cracking up. It was an easy read and really sparked his interest in reading for fun. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun book for young readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS BOOK November 9, 2009
By MH
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach sixth grade and bought this book a couple of weeks ago. It was sitting on the shelf in my personal bookcase. Students were sneaking looks at it and begging me to read it. I read it today and now I HAVE to pass it along to our science teacher. What a great book!!! This book includes science, history,lessons about bullying, and being true to yourself. I am so impressed with this book. I think the author is a teacher who self-published. SUPPORT HIM! He is so talented. I am impressed. Here's hoping he writes more books. I believe kids (and adults) of all ages will laugh and learn something by reading Sweet Farts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey! May 26, 2010
By Terry L
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Hey, this isn't a book about farts! This is a book about family and friends and stick-with-it-ness. Farts are just the medium used to pull it all together.

This is a quick-paced, well-written book that should keep its target audience's attention all the way through. It is enjoyable, comical and doesn't waste space with unneeded words that would slow the action down.

I liked it. I would give it to my kids (and, in fact, I did).

An enjoyable, quick read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy July 18, 2011
By Dalton
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My mom got this book for me and I simply said, "Huh, I bet it's just one of those books that authors write for young kids to make it look funny." But I was badly mistaken. This book is one of the funniest books I have ever read. Best of all it has my favorite trait, addicting. I was so excited when I was reading it I was really sad when it was finished. I wanted other people to have the enjoyable laughs that I had when reading this book. So I decided to come and share with all the people deciding this book. It's a must get! In my opinion I would say for the ages 8-12 but it really just is for good laughs. Any age over 8 will understand and have a good laughing when they're reading. I read this book when I was 11 years old and I cracked up into pieces. This is the perfect book for kids trying to read a comedy. I personally do not like reading, yet, I read and was immediately captured! I was really glad to have read it. If you don't like reading or if you do like reading this is the perfect book for you. You won't even know you're reading it's like a movie or a great dream! My point is this book is so perfect and funny for reading that it's not a book! Its better like a movie! Or a fairytale! Anyway, you gotta get this book. Don't waist your time thinking, while you could be enjoying and laughing along with this outstanding book. Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected! January 8, 2010
Format:Paperback
I purchased the book based on a couple other reviews. I read it as soon as it came in to make sure it was going to be a good for my son to read. I liked it and now that my son is reading it he can't put it down. I like the fact that it is educational and silly at the same time!

3.0 out of 5 stars Inventing new fart scents May 3, 2011
Format:Paperback
Keith Emerson is the key character in this new kids' book. He is being blamed for passing some awful smelling gas in the classroom. He also got a new (not so nice) nickname, "S.B.D." (Silent But Deadly). Keith decides to find a cure for bad smelling gas and makes that as his science project.

If you like farts and books like Griffiths: the day my butt went psycho, Just disgusting, and Captain Underpants, then you probably laugh reading this book.

The story is quite simple, but it will attract the boys who are not so eager to read.
