Fart Squad by Seamus Pilger and illustrated by Stephen Gilpin

About the Book: It was an average day at Harry Buttz Elementary until . . . KABLAM! The five-bean burritos churning in Darren Stonkadopolis’s stomach exploded in a fart so volcanic it melted his desk seat, knocked out his whole class, and got him sent to the nurse—and he’s not alone.

Something fishy is going on in Buttzville. And it’s up to Darren and his three farting friends to combine their potty powers to get to the bottom of this evil plot—before it’s too late. With their scent-sei, Janitor Stan, at their side, the Fart Squad has to learn to harness the powers between their butt cheeks. And then let it RIIIP.

Fart Squad: Fartasaurus Rex by Seamus Pilger, illustrated by Stephen Gilpin


It’s the second adventure from the smelt-it, dealt-it, you-can-fasten-your-seat-belt-but-they-might-melt-it . . . fearless FART SQUAD! This laugh-out-loud chapter book series is perfect for Captain Underpants fans. With black-and-white illustrations throughout and port-a-potties full of bathroom humor, young readers will be giggling from start to finish.

When Darren Stonkadopolis and the rest of the Fart Squad are bussed off to the Natural History Museum, Darren melts a petrified tar pit with a volcano-hot fart. And when he does, he lets out what the pit had been holding in—the deadliest farter in all history, the ferocious Fartasaurus Rex. Now it’s up to the Fart Squad to chow down, power up, and blast this prehistoric beast back to the Flatulent Age before the whole town becomes fossil fuel!
