High Fart Content

by Sarah
Humour + Kids / March 15, 2010

Every month, readers across the country enter the newsletter contest to win new books published by Raincoast's client publishers. I love getting feedback on the books I send and today I received an email from Pat in Waterloo, Ontario, winner of the February draw for Bart King's The Big Book of Gross Stuff (which Siobhan blogged about last week). He said:

I am now convinced that putting the word "FART" in any book will get boys to read.

Dion [Pat's 8-year-old] has barely put the book down, and has read to me the same sections at least two or three times with a laugh that brings a smile to all parents' faces." The Big Book of Gross Stuff "has brought a lot of laughter into our house over the weekend and it has a little boy reading it over and over."

The Big Book of Gross Stuff, by Bart King

Lucky Pat will get to fully enjoy the bounty of Bart's latest book on Wednesday; apparently Dion is creating a gift of fake vomit using Cheez Whiz and green food colouring. Happy birthday, Dad! Can you say ewwww?


If you'd like to learn more about Raincoast's latest offerings, and take a chance at winning some cool (and gross!) books, sign up for the Kids' Book newsletter.
