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.
