"This snicker-inducing topic will be difficult for kids to resist A light, comic look at two bodily functions with high child appeal.” —Kirkus Reviews
why we can’t burp while on our backs
which animals can’t “cut the cheese”
how fish communicate via burp bubbles
why soda and burps go together
who farts more—boys or girls
Capped off with a spread on “Fart-tastic Facts & Burp-tacular Bits,” this amazing, amusing mix of humor and nonfiction is an ideal draw for reluctant readers, classroom units on body science—and kids who just think burps and farts are funny!
Given visual gas-pression via Pranas T. Naujokaitis’s exuberant cartoon-style illustrations,
look for this to be a hit with both kids and educators.
For as Mr. Bennett puts it: Cows and pigs, crude or classy, Kids, grown-ups, we’re all . . . GASSY!

What I like about it- After tackling the subjects of butts and poop (THE BUTT BOOK and POOPENDOUS) where else would Mr. Bennett turn – body gasses of course! This is another hilarious yet scientifically amazing book from Artie Bennett! He handles these subjects with so much ease and humor, you just can’t put this book down! It is put into two separate sections (BELCHES & BURPS, and FARTS), which are equally hilarious. I like that it shares fun facts about our internal gasses, too! Did you know that we can’t burp when on our backs? That termites fart the most? That you fart about 14 times a day (I counted – it’s true!)? Mr. Bennett makes these books great for any age and you also get to learn a bit about biology! The story is done in a well-done rhyme that sounds natural and flows off of the tongue. It makes it easier for younger kids to read, and there will be giggles all around. The illustrations are awesome, and have tiny little details in them that will keep you howling with laughter!
