Sam Lawrence & Ben Jacks0n (Authors) | Danko Herrera (Illustrator)
A beautifully illustrated journey of Timmy and his best friend the Little Fart as they attend Timmy’s first hockey tryouts. Chaos and laughter ensue as the Fart attempts to help out his best friend the only way he knows how.
Cute and funny. Well written with age-appropriate vocabulary. The font is a (possibly) little small for kids, but overall, I’m happy with it.
The authors picked the right illustrator for this book series. Little Fart is adorable! Each page is a barrel of laughs as Fart causes a lot of anxiety for poor Timmy.
The cover art is fun and funny, though the background is a little drab. The title is large enough, but the font choice is a bit weak. It really doesn’t reflect the fun, goofy hilarity of the story. I’d have liked to see a stronger, bolder choice in font–even if no further text treatment was added.
