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.

More from Raymond Bean

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

  • Nobody can be charged for farting. That's just silly!
  • He was rude. I believe he'll be charged.
  • This entire story was made up!
  • I don't know.

Today, several states had thousands of women joining together to fight against Trump. Celebrities like Madonna, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cirus showed up, some gave speeches, women shouted and raised their signs. Will Trump budge? What do you think? Should women be able to have abortion? Should Trump cut funds of women?

I think it loads faster, compiles faster, and is just overall smoother... The only thing that the Steam version has that this one does not is access to the 'workshop,' in which you can easily share and play other people's games. Ah, cool! X3 I'll pass on your advice to my friend so someone may benefit from it, as I don't use the application anymore. Thanks ^-^

He's the leader of our country, whether we like it or not, and we need to help him, as our government is based on the people. When you wish for him to fail, you're practically wishing for the country to fall... which isn't a good thing for the citizens o.o

I've made several top-down and platformer games, as well as one 3D game. I never got too far with my 3D game, but I have the basic movement down. Right now, I'm working on a top-down survival shooter game! I've done a bit of experimenting with GameMaker Studio, but was too lazy to learn the coding and dropped it :P My friend is learning how to actually USE it though. He always makes fun of me for it, lol. Do you use it through Steam or found the program and downloaded it?
