‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
Secret Life of Farts (The)
by Malin Klingenberg
Age Range: 6-8
This is a riotous and hilarious picture book by Finnish author Malin Klingenberg written in Swedish. The rhyming couplets are perfectly captured by A. A. Prime and are sure to provide plenty of laughs for children (and adults!) as it sets out to make fun of the unspoken world of flatulence.
“When a robber broke into a kitchen one day
He retched at the reek and scuttled away
For the panicking chef hadn’t known what to do
And had let out a stinker, like rotten fondue.”
Klingenberg's witty irreverence of this bodily function has thought of every kind of fart adventure whether it’s up a mountain, athletes on a racetrack, in a concert hall or crowded lift and even at a royal banquet, there are farts everywhere!
The outrageously comical illustrations by Sanna Mander are bright and colourful and complement the text perfectly. This laugh-out-loud book is sure to become a firm favourite with young readers.
