Le Petomane: one in the habit of farting

by Kathleen Krull and Paul Brewster
illustrated by Boris Kulikov

The explosive story of Joseph Pujol, who discovered an innate ability to control his sphincter. He became a big hit at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, where he entertained the crowd with sounds from his derrière.

Krull's verses don't always work, but the hilarious illustrations are a delight. For fans of bodily humour and Walter the Farting Dog. Unlike Walter, however, Pujol's talent was definitely not stinky!
