The Lovereading4Kids comment
Picked up with some trepidation I was expecting it to be directed at a rather younger audience than it turned out to be. It is, the author tells us, a true story about a man, Joseph Pujol, in Paris in the early 20th century, who could fart tunes and animal sounds for the entertainment of an audience. This of course renders everyone in hysterics and causes great amusement. No one else is as good as he is and only the Great War stops him and he disappears from public view. The story is told by the man himself to his grandchildren and at the very end you can sniff a smell (!) and together with the distinctly humorous illustrations makes it a book that boys will no doubt find very entertaining though girls might be slightly disapproving and as for parents!!...

The Story of the Famous Farter Scented Storybook with Exhilarating Story and Gorgeous Illustrations by David Boyle
STORY OF THE FAMOUS FARTER is an EXPLOSIVELY FUNNY, MOSTLY TRUE STORY of the artist Joseph Pujol, who takes Paris by storm in the 19th century.
He took to the stage at the Moulin Rouge, entertaining the crowds by making music with his very own, rather “original” instrument.
