Five flies devoured a dropped bean, while 135 dogs ate cheese fallen from a truck, plus everyone in town ate an egg, or two, for breakfast. Oh, and 45 cats swallowed cheese for a snack. Then, oh my, they all fart at the same time. Can you imagine? The author sure can and tells the tale of a gaseous town where all of this, and more, happened one not so fine day. After the farts came a huge blast that blew every grandma from their rocking chair onto a skateboard and caused zebras to change their stripes. This town was a mess, a smelly mess. How are they going to get rid of the odor? The author knows and tells the sad tale of this odorous town quite well. So well, one wonders if she and the illustrator were there that day.

Hmmm...not my favourite book, and the pictures were not that vibrant and colourful. My little brother found it hilarious though, and while older years might not see the humour, kids will! Suited to younger years! Read full review
