Book Description

27 Nov 2012 Monstrous Morals
Is your child a breezy-buttocked bottom-burper? A frightful figure of flatulence? A truly terrible trumper? A pungent pumper par excellence? Does the apple of your eye make more noise than the biggest jumbo jet on take-off and emit more methane than a large herd of elephants on a strictly vegetarian diet? Do you find it happening at embarrassing moments, like when you're standing in the supermarket queue or ordering a meal in a nice restaurant? Do you find youself frequently having to open windows or move into another room? Do you have to pretend that an embarrassing noise has come from your shoe scuffing on the floor, the squeaking of a leather chair, or the call of a wild bird passing overhead? Are you forced to suggest that the lingering smell is the result of a mysterious substance local farmers are using to fertilise their nearby land? If any of this strikes a chord and you are able to admit to yourself that you have a child who farts, then you have taken the courageous first step. The second step is to read this book about Fartin' Martin Sidebottom, a boy who can't stop breaking wind. Martin endures a terrifying adventure when he joins a wind orchestra conducted by the devil and ends up in the eye of a hurricane. It is the first book in the Monstrous Morals series - a fun and educational way for parents to get important messages across about the nasty habits that children pick up. Written in comical rhymes, designed to appeal to both children and parents, the Monstrous Morals aim to make sure those habits aren't carried into adulthood. We begin our adventures with Fartin Martin Sidebottom - a tale that is bound to put the wind up any flatulent child...

About the Author

PETER BARRON was born in Saltburn, on the Cleveland coast, in 1962. He spent his early years in the steel community of South Bank, near Middlesbrough, where his dad was a steelworker and his mum the local postlady. His first taste of being a successful writer came when he won a Blue Peter badge as a child for entering an "odd ode" competition with a poem about a giant blancmange. He went to St Peter's Comprehensive School, South Bank, before moving on to St Mary's Sixth Form College in Middlesbrough. He trained as a journalist at Darlington College of Technology, where he met his wife Heather, and got his first job as a trainee reporter on the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph after getting mixed up with another young applicant - who turned out to be Jeremy Clarkson. Peter joined The Northern Echo in 1984 and became UK Columnist of the Year in 1997, shortly before joining the Hartlepool Mail as editor. He rejoined The Northern Echo in 1999 as editor and continues in that role. Peter has four children, who started out as little monsters but are growing into quite nice human beings. He is the author of four books based on

5.0 out of 5 stars Monstrous fun! 14 Feb 2013
Bought this book for our 10 year old and he absolutely loved it! The story, written in rhyme, moves along at a great pace with twists and turns on every page. The excellent illustrations add to the fun. Will definitely be interested in the rest of the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as funny as I thought 27 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought for my 5 year old daughter thought she would find it funny but in fact was scared of the pictures! Not as good as I thought would not recommend or to read in store first to see if your little one has a different sense of humour. It was cheaper than the book store though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and witty 18 May 2014
This is an extremely hard book to read without laughing... I think I enjoyed it just as much as the children, possibly more! The illustrations are bright and colourful. A child's book for both children and the child in the adult too.
