Harvey, the Boy Who Couldn’t Fart

Harvey, the Boy Who Couldn’t Fart by Matthew Johnstone (Walker Books)
PB RRP $ 14.95
ISBN: 9781922179197
Reviewed by Anastasia Gonis

Harvey is a happy boy with only one problem. He can’t fart. The dog and cat can (silent and deadly ones), his parents can and his brother Max – especially in the bath. His sister does when no one is around and grandpa’s ‘trouser trumpets’ are pretty toxic.

Poor Harvey feels left out. Grandpa has a solution. He goes into his shed and after a lot of banging and crashing he comes out with a tool that will solve Harvey’s problem.

This is a hilarious, fun-filled story for younger children on a seemingly gross but natural bodily function. The illustrations of the expressions and reactions of both people and pets are priceless!
