I bought this book for my 8yr old daughter and 5yr old son knowing they like all things silly and rude. Its all about certain bodily odours, if you get my drift and while reading it for the first time I became a child again giggling at the humour. My children both love this book and still have hysterics when its read to them.

I had already bought Dirty Bertie because it was a funny book and my 2 daughters love chanting the chorus "No! Bertie! That's Dirty Bertie!". When I saw this book, I bought it without even looking at it. I knew it would be along the same lines as the first book. It is hilarious. Again my 2 daughters love it. I don't see why anyone should be offended by the words 'poot' and 'boff' to describe the passing of wind. I can think of worse words... It's not to everyone's taste - if you're embarrassed about that kind of thing, but most kids aren't and would find it highly amusing.

This is the funniest children's book I have ever read. My 2 daughters (aged 4 and 7)and I were nearly crying with laughter the first few times we read it together. I have bought a copy for my brother (aged 31) as he is greatly appreciative of trumps of all kinds, especially his own. To the reviewers who hated this book, quite frankly, if you're going to be offended by bodily functions you shouldn't have picked up this book in the first place - the clue is in the title, it might be an idea to read the title before you buy a book in future. To all those who love a good boff, read on!!!!!

My three year old daughter loves this book and also 'Dirty Bertie'. Given that the supposed "offensive" language in this book is 'parp' and 'toot' I hardly think it's likely that this book will corrupt your child compared to their peer group at nursery! This is a great book as it is short (some of my daughter's books are like junior versions of war and peace), funny and it is easy for children to start reading it themselves due to the repetition factor. A fab little book about something we all do.......

What normal child doesn't find farts funny? Or immature adult for that matter. I saw this in a book shop and couldn't stop smiling all through it. I bought the book with the audio CD and it's fantastic. I was laughing as I listened to it. I've got a 4 year old and 2 year old nieces and this is perfect for both of them. The CD has a song on it (the manuscript is even printed in the back of the book along with the words) which loosely follows the words in the book. I wanted to get a book with an audio CD and decided the only way it would work to keep my nieces' attention was if it was funny and entertaining. This book is both and a hell of a lot more!

I haven't yet read this David Roberts book to my 2-yr-old but I'm certain she will love it as much as 'Dirty Bertie'. She loved the pictures and shouting 'that's dirty, Bertie' after every incident. To Kerry of Banff I'd say 'you've missed the point Kerry, the author/illustrator has tapped directly into what makes (intelligent) children laugh. Many children can be quite sophisticated when it comes to humour - unlike yourself, it seems.' And to 'A reader' (4 Mar 2006) - with your standard of English you are in no position to criticise any writers. Until you improve your grammar and spelling you will 'learn your children nuffink at all' What a cheek you have writing in at all! More books soon please Mr Roberts.

My son aged 2 1/2 received this book as a Christmas present and it is already a favourite. We giggle together and will admit to recognising the dog's behaviour at least ! At this age you are entering into all the potty time euphemisms anyway and the phrases used are no worse. It is also a useful introduction to the notion that some behaviours ie laughing at toilet humour are not acceptable to all generations. The illustrations are wonderfully detailed eg the everton mint sticking out of grandma's pocket.

Come on, we all know we let a little gas off once in a while.
I know the majority of people will read this review and tell me to grow up. Every now and again its good to be silly and have a giggle with your little ones.
Its not like on a regular daily basis I talk about flatulance with my child.
But, with following one little boys adventure of how its not only him but other family members who let rip, this book can be a huge laugh.
It tempts the reader to try out different voices for Grandma, Mum, Dad and big sister Suzie along with making an attempt to put your own sounds to the "boffs" and "poots" that all emit from their rear ends - not to mention the cat that goes "pip" and the dog who wafts his smell about!
All in all a very fun read which leaves your little one wanting more.
Buy it! Its a hoot! (lol)

I am buying this book for my 5 year old's birthday after seeing her, her 8 year old brother and their 40 something father in fits of laughter after seeing this book read on the TV programme Bookaboo. Having just watched the repeat of this programme I just hope you get a free Al Murray (the reader in this episode) as his telling of the story was absolutely hilarious.
No doubt the "Bookaboo effect" with increase sales but more importantly increase children's love of books and reading (preaching to the converted in our bookish household

Can't wait to re visit this book time and again with the kids it looks like a book that will be enjoyed out loud for many years to come!

I bought this book for my 3 and a half year old as he naturally finds things of this vein rather amusing. Sadly, the book misses the point with him a little, they use so many different terms for 'blowing off' that it gets lost in translation, even with my sound effects added! I think it could have been so much funnier than it is, the title certainly suggests it is. There is also not much story to it, we prefer the length of Gruffalo etc
