 '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..


👃   ðŸ’š   ðŸ‘ƒ   ðŸ’š   ðŸ‘ƒ   ðŸ’š   ðŸ‘ƒ

Jessa has it all figured out.  When her time comes to wish for her line of work, she wants nothing more than to be a Tooth Fairy.  It is a noble, respected, and rewarding line of work, so who could blame her!  Only problem...when she herself loses a front tooth prior to making the wish, and for those of you that have lost a tooth before, you know what I mean before I even say it.  Try missing a tooth and says sister susie sitting on a thistle and listen to what you get.  The words just don't come out 100% clear because you can't quite make the "THE" sound.  So when Jessa goes to say her wished for profession, it's not TOOTH that is heard crystal clear, but TOOT...hence her new line of work in a particularly gaseous business.  Does she let it get her down?  Initially, yeah...I mean, she was hoping to work with lost tangible things from the mouth not green clouds from rear ends...but with a little prospective and the help of the retired fairy she will be taking up the mantle of, little Jessa is able to hold her wings up with pride and be the best darn TOOT FAIRY you ever did see!

I admit, it's a bit off putting when you're reading a rhyming book about toots...and rather surprising that there's a fairy tasked with gathering them, or at least spotting and paying for them (wait a minute, paying for them?  I know a few people that should be downright rich from this!  HA!).  No doubt the story is certainly creative, and the illustrations are both lovely and hilarious all at once, but the real magic I found was in how even with the silly nature of everything, a message was imparted.  It reminds us and teaches wee ones to make the best of situations, no matter off putting or ridiculous they might be.  They can and should always strive to be the best they can be!

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!


🧀   ðŸ§€   ðŸ§€   ðŸ§€   ðŸ§€   ðŸ§€   ðŸ§€   ðŸ§€

The stink fest continues from our first title, but in a new, slightly nauseating, yet rather clever way!  Instead of chasing gaseous clouds of green gas, we're on the hunt for marbled cheese...or more specifically, Durdsen's cheese.  You see, he started out with humble beginnings and mundane cheese that not even the mice wanted to fight over, but after his adventures in the great wide world, he returned with a blend the townspeople couldn't keep their hands off of!  I didn't initially blame them because hello, tasty cheese is yummy...but after the big reveal of how it's made came around, I just didn't have the stomach.  Grant it, it's clever, it rhymes, and kiddos will have a hoot with it...but anyone that might take it too seriously or has a weak stomach, maybe should leave this fine fromage to those with greater fortitude.  

In short, you'll laugh, you'll cry (or at least have your eyes well up from the smelly cheese!), you'll crave this dairy-licious treat, and then perhaps rethink it again.  The story is creative, the illustrations a blast, and it's definitely something you won't soon forget!



About the author...

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.
