This very small book (filled with cartoons of very large farts) will be enjoyed by boys of all ages - and I have to admit that it made me chuckle too. The author, Steven Appleby, is a leading cartoonist whose work appears in major U.K. newspapers.

Appleby takes us farting all around the world - and even into space - with all kinds of noises - from HISS (the doggy version), OINK!, and POP (the infant fart) to TOOT (the bovine version) and BLAM! (an explosive fart). You have to love the 'après curry fart'. There's a remarkable set of pictures of the fart production process, followed by suggestions for fart-collecting equipment, and a set of 'specially absorbent pages' so that you can collect celebrity farts to sell on eBay.

Looking for a funny, slightly shocking stocking stuffer for someone with a Brit sense of humor? You won't go wrong with The Little Book of Farts.
