Fiction Fridays: The Bravest Kid I've Ever Known (and other Naughty Stories for Good Boys and Girls)

Hooray! My wireless is back up and at last I can return to Fiction Fridays.
(Blogging anything other than very basic formatting is too hard on an iPad - or at least it is for me).

This week's book - or actually, a story in a book:

The Bravest Kid I've Ever Known
and Other Naughty Stories for Good Boys and Girls
by Christopher Milne
Hardie Grant Egmont, 2010

A Very Naughty Boy
Neil Pike was a naughty boy.
A very naughty boy.
You see, Neil did smells. All the time. Rotten, disgusting smells. On purpose.

According to the blurb at the back, this book was born when the author ran out of stories to read his kids and started making up his own, and found the more "pooey, rotten, disgusting things" in the stories the better they went over.

We haven't yet read all the stories in this book, but THIS story was a huge success with my girls, and no doubt would be with your kids too.

Neil is a chronic and disgusting farter, but manages to save the day when his whole school is swept out to sea due to some very heavy rain (??? the physics are not clear). The save involves the use of many pieces of cloth tied together and strung up on the roof to make a sail, and Neil providing the required ... propulsion to blow them back home.

Miss M. in particular laughed herself so giddy she nearly fell off her bed.
