Keith too young for all the pressure,
This review is from: Sweet Farts #2: Rippin' It Old School (Sweet Farts Series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the second book, book one deals with Keith inventing 'sweet farts'. There was enough in this book to follow what was happening, this book sees Keith under a lot of pressure to invent something equally amazing for this years science fair.
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.
