Sweet Farts

Sweet Farts #1

Someone has been farting up a storm at school and everyone thinks Keith Emerson is to blame. Unfortunately for Keith, it has earned him the nickname “S.B.D.” (silent but deadly). To make matters worse, Keith’s dad is a self proclaimed “Fart Machine” who really stinks it up at home. With the science fair quickly approaching, Keith decides he has had enough. He comes up with a science fair project idea to turn the foul smell of human gas into something sweet smelling. The idea lands him in the principal’s office, and in big trouble with his mom. With the help of his little sister Emma, his dad, his crazy grandma, and Benjamin Franklin (great American scientist), Keith will attempt to make the greatest scientific discovery of all time, the cure for the common fart.

Sweet Farts: Rippin' It Old School

Sweet Farts #2 – Rippin’ It Old-School

Keith Emerson discovered the cure for the common fart when he invented Sweet Farts. He’s a ten year old in charge of his own company, runs a science lab, and Keith’s a self made millionaire! So, what could possibly be bothering him? Well, his four year old sister’s new found love of farting is causing all kinds of problems. His friends spend most of their time and energy trying to embarrass him for their pleasure. If that isn’t enough to drive a kid crazy, the science fair is weeks away and Keith has no idea what to do for his next experiment.

This time around, Keith will attempt to discover something new and amazing in time for the big science fair, deal with his friends’ constant teasing, and help his sister Emma learn the complex laws of farting. Sure he made one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time, according to Benjamin Franklin (great American scientist), but the question facing him now is…”What’s next?”

School is a Nightmare #1

School is a Nightmare #1

Justin’s last few days of summer are quickly vanishing. His mom is in full blown
back to school mode, and he can’t do anything to stop it. Over the final forty
eight hours of summer he’s been dragged shopping for shoes, clothes, and worst
all, school supplies.

The first three days of school only get worse when
he loses his pet snake, all the money in his savings account, and nearly his own
life.

Oh, and he has the meanest teacher in the whole school, Mrs. Cliff.
She’s been around so long she taught his dad when he was a kid. The thought of
spending a whole school year in her class makes him want to hop the first bus to
Canada. Unfortunately, he can’t afford a bus ticket to Canada, so he’ll just
have to suck it up.

 

School is a Nightmare #2 - The Field Trip

School is a Nightmare #2 – The Field Trip

The School Is A Nightmare books are fast paced, have quick chapters (we promise), and are shorter than the average book (you’re welcome).
Justin’s first week of school was a complete nightmare, and he’s thankful it’s over. He may not be a fan of school, but he’s a huge fan of field trips.

It’s finally the day of the first school trip of the year. All week he’s been looking forward to pumping his fist so truckers will honk their horns, sneaking loads of candy, and having a fun day off. It’s only the second week of school, but he’s already exhausted and needs a break.

Unfortunately for him, his day off isn’t exactly what he had in mind. He’s bitten by a snake, attacked by bees, and blamed for making the whole grade late. Even worse, he’s sent to the hospital and may not even get a chance to finish the trip with the rest of the kids.

It was supposed to be the perfect trip, but it was a total nightmare.

The Riptide is professional baseball’s newest team. It’s also the worst. The players are washed up, lazy, and should have retired a long time ago.

Will Panzell is the owner of the team. He’s also completely nuts. He lies, cheats, and schemes to sell tickets to Riptide games. His latest stunt is so bananas it has the whole world shocked, and it might just be crazy enough to work.

When Will and Tommy’s worlds collide, baseball may never be the same again.

Sweet Farts: Korean Edition

초등 4학년 교실, 누군가 방귀를 뀌고서 키스에게 덮어씌운다. 순식간에 범인이 된 키스, 억울하게도 ‘조만치(조용하지만 치명적인)’라는 별명까지 얻으며 방귀쟁이로 낙인찍힌다. 어느 날, 과학 박람회에 발표할 주제를 찾던 키스는 동생 엠마를 번쩍 들어 올려 놀아 주다가 엠마가 키스의 얼굴에 대고 방귀를 뀌는 덕분(?)에 프로젝트 주제를 생각해 낸다. 바로 ‘방귀 냄새를 달콤하게 바꾸는 법’을 발명하는 것이었다. 키스의 프로젝트를 본 선생님은 키스가 장난을 친다고 생각했고, 이 일로 키스는 교장 선생님께 불려 간다. 그런데 다행히도 벤저민 프랭클링의 왕팬인 교장 선생님이 그가 1781년, 로열 아카데미에 쓴 편지를 발견하면서 키스는 프로젝트를 승인 받고 발명에 돌입한다! 키스의 재미있는 실험 소식은 지역신문에도 소개될 정도로 많은 관심을 받지만, 실험에서 이렇다 할 성과를 거두지 못한 키스는 점점 초조해진다. 결국 키스는 자신의 가설이 잘못된 것으로 결론을 내린다. 프로젝트에 성공하지 못한 탓에 과학 박람회에 참석하는 걸 꺼렸지만, 키스의 부모님은 프로젝트의 성공 여부와 관계없이 키스의 새로운 시도와 노력 자체가 의미 있는 것이었다며 이것을 자랑스럽게 여겨야 한다고 격려한다.

그로부터 1년 후, 키스는 곤잘레스 박사를 만나 프로젝트를 성공시키고, ‘달콤한 방귀’라는 작은 알약을 만들어 낸다. 이 약이 시중에 판매되면서 키스는 유명세를 타게 되고, 각종 매체는 키스와 달콤한 방귀 열풍이다. 키스는 달콤한 방귀 약 덕분에 부자가 되고, 회사까지 설립하기에 이른다. 지금 키스는 다음 실험을 구상 중이다. 달콤한 방귀보다 멋진 발명품이 탄생할까? 그의 새로운 도전에 응원을!
