Hilariously illustrated, a cautionary story about a girl with an amazing talent for burping

On an ordinary morning, in an ordinary room, an up-till-now perfectly ordinary Bertha does an extremely extra-ordinary burp. A burp so extraordinary, it knocks things over-including apples off of trees and even her teacher's glasses off his face! When word of her humongous burp gets out, she is asked to perform at the school concert, and from that point on Bertha's fame is assured. TV, recording, and film offers flood in. But burping can be a dangerous skill . . . is her new found celebrity stardom all just a lot of hot air?

"A brilliant tale told with all the ingenuity of Michael Rosen and accompanied by the wonderful illustrations of Tony Ross." The Bookbag "Harks back, like Horrid Henry, to the comic strips of Dennis the Menace or Minnie the Minx" -- Lorna Bradbury Telegraph "The subject and slapstick will find large guffaws of appreciation from a broad range of primary ages." The School Librarian
