Overview

Farley the frog has a problem – he can't stop farting. While his sister thinks it's funny, his parents and his teacher are not amused. The doctor says it's only gas and it will pass. The trouble is, it does! Farley tries to control himself, but the results are worse: he swells up like a balloon and floats off into the sky. Comic pictures and a tongue-in-cheek text relate how Farley and his family learn that it's better to fart and bear the shame than not to fart and bear the pain!

Author Biography: Birte Müller was born in Hamburg, Germany, where she still lives today. Her first book for North-South was Giant Jack.

Although the doctor says it will pass, Farley the frog is embarrassed that he cannot stop farting and tries to control himself, but when he swells up like a balloon things are even worse.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Like Lisa Kopelke's Excuse Me! (Children's Forecasts, Jan. 13), Muller's (Giant Jack) tale of a flatulent frog hangs its humor on a basic bodily function. But unlike Kopelke's hero, who learns his lesson, here a fart saves Farley's life. Farley the Frog "had to fart all the time. When he was eating, pfffooottt!... Even when he was sleeping, pfffooottt!" There's not a lot of substance to the airy plot (Farley passes gas in several places, sees the doctor, and then encounters trouble trying to stop), while the amount of pfffooottting seems over the top. But the preschool set will likely erupt in giggles, even if adults may groan at a tired pun or two ("The doctor rolled his eyes and sputtered. `Nothing serious. Just, um, a case of a little gas. It will pass' "). Red-roofed, white farm houses dotting the outdoor scenes add European touches to the artwork; while humorous details (e.g., small red fish with resigned expressions leap from a pond-turned-Jacuzzi, courtesy of Farley's emissions) enliven the proceedings of the hapless cartoon frog, who resembles a chubby Kermit. When Farley attempts to quell his noisy outbursts and swells up like a Macy's parade balloon, readers can easily guess the remedy for his airborne plight. Ages 5-8. (Mar.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Farley is a charming young frog with big, bulging eyes and a wide smile. But he has an embarrassing anti-social condition. His digestive system produces large quantities of gas, which keeps making gross noises when he expels it. Everywhere he goes he is criticized. The doctor says it is just gas, and "it will pass." Unfortunately, "it KEPT passing." So he tries hard to stop, but his tummy begins to swell until it grows so bloated that he floats up into the sky. His worried family tells him to let it go, so he can come down to their loving arms. All seems well again, until the bean soup for dinner causes a PFFFOOOTTT. This time, however, it's not Farley's fault. The slight story is vitalized by the sketchy, textured illustrations of the appealing characters in their amusing situations. This should be a hit with the Captain Underpants fans, as well as a help to some children suffering from this condition. 2003, A Michael Neugebauer Book/North-South Books,
— Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-No matter how he tries to control himself, Farley can't stop farting. At home, in school, wherever he is, his loud "PFFFOOOTTT" shatters the silence. The doctor considers it merely a temporary problem that "will pass"-but it's small consolation for the little frog, who tries to follow his parents' advice to "see if [he] can stop." But this causes his stomach to expand like a balloon and he becomes airborne, drifting ever higher and higher. A giant fart releases his gas and allows him to float gently to earth, cured of his digestive problems. While the subject is sure to capture children's interest, there are some inconsistencies to consider. The cartoon painting of Farley's happy face on the cover might lead readers to believe this is one happy-go-lucky frog. There is no pictorial evidence of the embarrassment that this ailment must have caused him. Would he smile happily while sitting on the potty if he is experiencing stomach distress? Would his mother, relieved that Farley has landed safely and seems to be cured, actually serve bean soup that very evening? And while children may giggle at Farley's dilemma, the pictures and text are totally at odds with one another here. "Pass" on this one.-Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community College, CT Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Hard on the heels of Lisa Kopelke's Excuse Me! (2003) comes another tale of a frog with chronic digestive difficulties. Farley's little sister may find his affliction amusing, but his worried parents first haul him off to a doctor, who assures them that "it will pass" (well, yes), then enjoin him just to try holding it in. As if. But Farley does so, which causes him to swell up like a balloon and float away. With but occasional exceptions, Farley and the pop-eyed froggy figures around him wear fixed smiles that seem to contradict the anxiety and embarrassment expressed in the text. Furthermore, his angst comes to an unlikely end after a single stentorian blast returns him to earth, and Mom makes bean soup for the whole family so that he won't feel so singled out. Since Farley's distress is treated in a jokey way, he's more likely to get smirks than sympathy from readers; wave this off in favor of Shinta Cho's informative, amusing The Gas We Pass (1994).
