From Publishers Weekly
This title, which explores all forms of flatulence, is "both informative and blunt," said PW. "The book provides young readerswith solid facts as well as plenty to snicker about." All ages.

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 1-A simplistic explanation of human and animal flatulence. The text adequately tells how gas is formed and its characteristics, although it overlooks the role of dairy products in its formation. A basic diagram shows the passage of food and air through the body. The drearily colored, amateur line cartoons depict a family of no particular race and zoo animals with sound balloons, such as "BURP!" and "BAAROOMM" being emitted from both ends. This bodily function that is the source of so much schoolyard humor may be of interest to youngsters, but they won't glean much information from this mediocre presentation.Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
