Book Review: Sweet Farts by Raymond Bean

Jun 08, 2012

Everyone does it, but only a few admit it. We’re talking about farting! The Sweet Farts Trilogy follows Keith Emerson, a boy accused of a fart crime he didn’t commit. Kidzworld reviews Sweet Farts by Raymond Bean.

Silent But Deadly

When Anthony Papas lets one rip in class and blames it on Keith Emerson, his entire class dubs Keith with the new nickname “S.B.D” (silent but deadly). But the more Keith tries to deny it, the more guilty he looks.

Cotton Candy Farts

The science fair is just around the corner, and Keith is short on ideas. His new nickname makes him think, what if there was a way to make farts smell better? Like cotton candy or grapes or, if Keith’s little sister Emma had her way, pickles! Keith presents his idea to his teacher, Mr. Cherub, but it doesn’t go over well. Now his class has even more reasons to bully him.

Benjamin Franklin

When the principal learns about Keith’s idea, he urges him to pursue it. Apparently, Benjamin Franklin (inventor of bifocals, the stove and the lightning rod) had the same idea back in 1781, but never fully explored it. If Keith could conduct the study and prove his hypothesis right, he could be one of the greatest inventors of all time, according to Ben Franklin that is. But the task won’t be easy, even with his resident farting machines (his dad and sister) to test out his theory.

Keith Emerson’s farting adventures continue in Sweet Farts #2: Rippin’ It Old-School and Sweet Farts #3: Blown Away.

I'd vote out - it costs us £350 million a week. Think of how much more money we'd have to spend on schools and the NHS. It's enough to build a new NHS hospital every week. Less than half of this is given back - and we have no say whatsoever where this money goes. Though of course, millions are spent on limos and expenses for Euro MPs.  We'd be in charge of our borders. We can control who comes in and who goes out, which is generally safer, and we won't be overruled by EU judges. Worried about jobs? The EU stops us from signing our own trade deals with countries like Australia, or growing economies like China or Brazil. I personally don't think there'd be an huge loss of jobs, but if jobs are lost, they can quickly be recovered through these new trade deals, and help us thrive economically.
