My first concern was whether this book would be too toilet-y for my tastes what with its title and all that but I needn't have worried. The humour was fine although based around farts the majority of the time. The rest of the humour was mainly generated from the banter between Keith and his friends.
The book flowed along nicely although it did take Keith an awfully long-time to get an idea for his science project - I'd already guessed what he'd do some time before - and also the science fair itself was over in a couple of pages despite the whole novel pretty much leading up to it. Further this book is a second in a series but doesn't rely on having any prior knowledge from the previous book as I followed it easily enough despite not having read the first one.
It took me about 2-hours to read and is for kids but adults can enjoy it too.
The fart jokes wore thin pretty quickly although overall I enjoyed the story. I wonder if the author 'Bean' got teased at school about his name (baked 'beans' - farting !) and this was his inspiration. I felt sorry for Keith, as a 10 year old boy he seemed under alot of pressure to do well and had no comfort at home. However a good happy ending with a moral. If life givess you lemons make lemonade.
Couldnt get my 8 + 9 year old interested in reading or being read this story so ended up reading it myself which to be honest was a chore. Enjoyed the preface and the rules of farts but the rest of the book didnt live up to this.
Following the adventures of Little Kieth Emerson's science fair dilemma was enjoyable for readers young and old in my household. Suitable for a bit of reading each night to younger ones to get them into following longer stories (made attractive with farts) or doable in one sitting for an adult (couple of hours)
The book isnt surprising or challenging in any way but what it does do is hook kids into stories, you can fine tune the content when they get a little older.
