No One Likes a Fart




A sweet, funny story about accepting yourself and finding a friend who loves you just the way you are. Mostly, though, it’s about a fart. And fart jokes. Loooots of fart jokes.

Fart is excited! He’s desperate to make friends and have fun. But no one likes a fart. Not even a fart with a heart. Too smelly. Too embarrassing. Too gross.

Zoë has written lots of grown-up books, none of which mention a single fart. She is the mother of two little people and a cat with a permanently cranky face. She wants it known that despite writing this book, she still doesn’t like farts, even if her husband Tooty McFluffson refuses to acknowledge this.

Zoë has written four novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field, The Younger Man and The Wrong Girl; a dating and relationship book, Textbook Romance, written in conjunction with Hamish Blake; and Amazinger Face, a collection of her best beauty tips and tricks.

She lives in Springfield with her husband, Homer, and her three children, Maggie, Lisa and Bart.

Praise for No One Likes a Fart

“Fart's Story is also a lovely reminder that there is a friend for everybody, no matter how unlikeable you think you are. Young children just beginning to read will love this book - especially if that means grabbing any opportunity they can to say the word "fart"!”

Daisy Chein, Melbourne's Child

“Who would have thought a story about farts and burps could be so heartwarming?”

Sunday Telegraph
