For anyone who has ever blamed the dog…
by Clayton Wehner - October 2nd, 2012
The perfect (and perfectly naughty) picture book for kids… and for anyone else who’s ever blamed it on the dog.
Let’s face it, farts are funny. Whether they are loud, smelly or just plain embarrassing, kids love a good fart. THERE IS A MONSTER UNDER MY BED WHO FARTS delivers both laughing farts and farting laughs. Hilarious, cheeky and, above all, fun, this is the picture book that kids want this Christmas and that parents secretly want for themselves. Especially Dads, who will probably laugh the loudest.
Authors Tim Miller and Matt Stanton were boys not so long ago themselves and are self-confessed experts on all things flatulent. The HarperCollins colleagues (Tim works in Marketing and Matt in Design) came up with the idea for the Fart Monster at the pub after work one evening in late 2011. Fine-tuned over text messages and emails, Matt begun sketching the illustrations and the rest, as they say, is history.
THERE IS A MONSTER UNDER MY BED WHO FARTS will be on everyone’s list this Christmas, because you’re never too old (or too young) to laugh about farts.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Matt Stanton is a 28-year-old creative farter with a wealth of knowledge and experience about farting and drawing (he has been doing both since he was in nappies). When he’s not coming up with new entries for his personal fart chart, Matt works as an art director for one of Australia’s leading publishers.
Tim Miller is also 28 and a fartaholic. He has dedicated his wonderful way with words to finding as many farting adjectives as humanly possible. By day Tim is the children’s marketing executive at one of Australia’s leading publishers. There Is A Monster Under My Bed Who Farts is his autobiography.
