 'A good giggle. In this day and age, it's fun to read something so...'refreshing'!''

- Craig Smith, Award-Winning International Bestselling Author of The Wonky Donkey

''Sorry, Walter the Farting Dog. I think it's fair to say that this is probably the best picture book about toots I've ever read. Take my advice and put away your scruples. You shouldn't turn up your nose at this.''

- Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal

''Wish I had thought of it first!''

- Adam Rex, Author/Illustrator of On Account of the Gum

When it's time for Jessa the fairy to proclaim what kind of fairy she wants to be, she accidentally says ''toot'' instead of ''tooth!'' Now she'll be in charge of finding all the toots from all the bottoms in the world. This is not exactly what she had in mind..

My Thoughts -

Jessa is a fairy and she is excited that she will get to choose what type of fairy she wants to be. However, she was so nervous she said "toot" instead of "tooth!" Now Jessa is tasked to finding all the toots from the bottoms of people all around the world.

The book was a fun and cute read. It was colorful and had a cute message. Little kids will love the humor while parents can appreciate the message, sometimes things don't work as planned but, you can make the best out of a situation.

Cheesemaker Durdsden could hardly be called a cheesemaker, with how bland, rubbery, and flavorless his cheese tasted. And so, in order to better his skills and silence the critics, he went in search of any and every cheesemaking technique he could learn. That way, he could make cheese to be envied by every cheesemaker, and savored by every cheese enthusiast. Now he's back with new skills, and some suspiciously delicious--deliciously suspicious--cheese to prove it. How could a man with such boring cheese before now make this tasty cheesy treat? You'll never guess what fabled creature holds the secret to Cheesemaker Durdsden's sudden success!


My Thoughts - 

Cheese-maker Durdsden isn't known for his cheese. His cheese is bland, flavorless, and has the consistency of rubber. He decides to go on a journey to improve his technique. He hopes to become the envy of every cheese-maker and taster.  Durdsden has returned with a new cheese that is delicious and everyone wants a piece of. The townspeople are suspicious because he was known to having yucky cheese before and now he has the most delicious cheese.

I thought the book was a fun but, a gross read. The illustrations were beautiful but, I wish that the illustrations were a bit more diversified. I had a feeling I knew where the book was going but, it was still a fun reveal. Young readers will enjoy reading the story while, adults might lose their appetite for cheese.

 

About Mark:

Mark Huffman writes about our shared human experiences, which is a pretentious way to say that he writes about toots and bottoms and food. He prepared for writing children's books by spending much of his early life as an actual child. Unlike other children's authors he might name who have spuriously claimed the title, he is a real doctor. He lives with his family in Texas.
