The monkey is gathering all the jungle animals for a farting contest. The hippo, the elephant, a shy giraffe, and a very refined zebra are all competing, but no one can guess who the winner will be.
Rafael Ordóñez Cuadrado is a poet and author of picture books, riddles, stories, plays, and recipes. He has published scores of books with some of the most prestigious publishing houses in Spain: fairy tales, riddles, a comic, two plays, a book of tourism stories, and more.
Laure du Fäy studied illustration in the École des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg and lives in Paris. She has published comics in France and Italy, but her main focus is picture books for kids. She has published in the United States, France, Spain, Holland, Switzerland, and China. Her book That’s Not Normal! was selected by the White Ravens.
“The author offers this frank fable of flatulence that, at its core, says sometimes a toot can make a tummy feel better (and it’s really nothing to make fun of). French artist du Fäy’s Matisse-y, blocky, colorful illustrations of cartoon creatures competitively cutting the cheese are perfectly in keeping with the cheeky tone of the text. A hoot about toots with a health lesson to boot.” ― Kirkus Reviews
