About the Author

It was very apparent this book was used or a return. The corner next to the soundboard was ripped, there was animal hair all over inside the book and there were kid stickers stuck on the back. I was able to clean up the book and I glued the corner down with gorilla glue to be presentable to give to a coworker due to I don’t have time to wait for a replacement. This isn’t the first or second or even third time I have received items that have clearly been used from Amazon, they really need to do a better job at QCing returned items.
This is a hard cover book 6 5/8 " X 8 ¼", and as hard as a book you would buy for a young child. The pages are hard and thick, too--so it is very durable, with 16 inner pages. 2 pages open to display a scene spread of bubble activity. Around the scene is some verbiage. There are 10 sound buttons on the sound module, which match up with the numbers and scenes. Here's an example.
Scene #3 is called "Blowing Smoke", from the Latin "outburstus smogitupus".
Field Marks: . . .bending boughs and flaring nostrils. . .
Voice: . . .song longer than all other species. . . (song?--Ha!)
Habitat:. . .meadows. . .
Range. . .Southern US. . .
Description:. . .has been known to extinguish matches. . .
Then you push button #3 and LYAO! (laugh your. . .)
Scene #5 is probably my favorite, though "The Flight of the Buttock Bees" or analretentivenus producii, for those who speak Latin. The scene is a bunch of tightly interwoven cubicles, with smoke rising from the center cubicle.
This book is a birthday gift for a primarily left-brained tekki friend. I cannot wait to see his face! (I love to make friends laugh'
Without going into specifics, if you have a young boy (or an adult with a young boys' sense of humour) this book will be a definite hit.
It probably should come with an extra set of batteries and you should probably also get used to disgusting sounds at any hour of the say or night lol.
Buy it for laughs, you know you want to :)
So far, have received no more calls, , but I'll be ready !

Book as stated, but the blue fart noise maker did not work.
Its the funniest part of the book and it does not have the fun factor without it.
It would have been nice if it had been stated as such. It had batteries in it which I found out later were the wrong ones.
So after purchasing various ones, I final found some that fitted and worked the noise maker.
As It is fully functioning now I am happy with it. Thanks.
