Everyone farts, but only some people get to carry their gas around with them forever.

Little Fart was full of great advice for Timmy. I especially liked how positive and encouraging he was when Timmy began to worry a lot about whether or not he’d make it onto the hockey team. This isn’t something I ever thought I’d say in one of my reviews here, but that fart was a very loyal friend. It was adorable to watch these characters figure out how to help Timmy feel better so his tryouts would go well.

The only piece of constructive criticism I have for this story has to do with its editing. I noticed multiple sentences that had punctuation errors in them. Some of them were missing commas, and others had more commas than they actually needed. As this was a picture book, the errors stood out to me even more than they usually would because many pages only had two or three sentences on them.

With that being said, the storyline itself was hilarious and fantastic. I giggled out loud more than once when I was reading it. The scenes that showed Little Fart trying to understand why Timmy was anxious and how he could help his friend feel better were just as funny as they were heartwarming. I also liked the fact that the fart jokes were silly instead of gross. This was the perfect angle to take for a story that was about so much more than passing gas.

This is the second book in a series. It can be read on its own or out of order.

The Day My Fart Followed Me to Hockey should be read by anyone who is in the mood to laugh.
