About The Books:
‘A good giggle. In this day and age, it’s fun to read something so…’refreshing’!”
– Craig Smith, Award-Winning International Bestselling Author of The Wonky Donkey
”Sorry, Walter the Farting Dog. I think it’s fair to say that this is probably the best picture book about toots I’ve ever read. Take my advice and put away your scruples. You shouldn’t turn up your nose at this.”
– Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal
”Wish I had thought of it first!”
– Adam Rex, Author/Illustrator of On Account of the Gum
When it’s time for Jessa the fairy to proclaim what kind of fairy she wants to be, she accidentally says ”toot” instead of ”tooth!” Now she’ll be in charge of finding all the toots from all the bottoms in the world. This is not exactly what she had in mind..
This should have been the precursor to Everyone Poops. It just makes sense and the rhymes and rhythm of this fairy tale should make everyone roll with laughter. This is perfect for children who are just starting to read but can’t find anything they like. When Jessa the soon-to-be full-fledged fairy misspoke and say TOOT and not TOOTH, she thinks her life is ruined as a fairy but then she meets her mentor. Poombus the Pungent has some wise words and Jessa’s whole outlook takes a turn for the better – a stinky new outlook but one that makes her realize her new purpose is just as important as a tooth fairy.
Cheesemaker Durdsden could hardly be called a cheesemaker, with how bland, rubbery, and flavorless his cheese tasted. And so, in order to better his skills and silence the critics, he went in search of any and every cheesemaking technique he could learn. That way, he could make cheese to be envied by every cheesemaker, and savored by every cheese enthusiast. Now he’s back with new skills, and some suspiciously delicious–deliciously suspicious–cheese to prove it. How could a man with such boring cheese before now make this tasty cheesy treat? You’ll never guess what fabled creature holds the secret to Cheesemaker Durdsden’s sudden success!
When Durdsden the Cheesemaker makes cheese that mice won’t even eat, he knows he must improve or change careers. So he travels far and wide to find a unique method that turns out to be a bit gross. He brings home a Yeti to cure his fromage and if you know anything about cheesemaking, it makes sense. I know that there are children who love stories like this and want to gross people out with tales that are disgusting. The illustrations are spot on and perfect to accompany the words. The reading level is a bit above what most first readers have and the words are interesting. It is a silly story that appeals should appeal to the children but maybe not their parents. This is one of those that children will whisper about and secretly share.
Mark Huffman writes about our shared human experiences, which is a pretentious way to say that he writes about toots and bottoms and food. He prepared for writing children’s books by spending much of his early life as an actual child. Unlike other children’s authors he might name who have spuriously claimed the title, he is a real doctor. He lives with his family in Texas.
2 winners will receive a finished copy of THE TOOT FAIRY & CHEESEMAKER DURDSDEN, US Only.
