Dr Proctor’s Fart Powder by Jo Nesbo

Jo Nesbo is well known as a writer of ‘Scandi crime’ with his latest book The Leopard out earlier this year.  But he is also a writer of children’s books and his Dr Proctor books press a number of buttons which are bound to appeal to lots of children.   They are silly and this particular books involves lots of , yes, farting.  Nilly is a very small boy, and is used to being made fun of.  He doesn’t like the attention much, but has his coping strategies and has other things on his mind. Such as playing the trumpet and helping to test Dr Proctor’s fart powder.  The tests to perfect the powder involve lots of dramatic explosions and Nilly’s new friend Lisa goes along for the ride.

If you have a child who has enjoyed Captain Underpants, Wimpy Kid or Nate the Great these books could be next off the rank.  $15
