Have we ever considered how a fart feels? Our immediate reaction is to make them feel unwelcome, but imagine if we didn’t? What lesson would we, especially children, learn? Zoë Foster Blake comes to the rescue and gives farts a break in No One Likes a Fart.
“For too long they’ve (farts) been deemed the enemy.” – Zoë
No One Likes and Fart is a sweet and funny story about accepting yourself and finding a friend who loves you just the way you are. Mostly, though, it’s about a fart. And fart jokes. Loooots of fart jokes. Children will definitely make a beeline for it but will learn a lesson along the way.
The story stems from Zoë’s own need to get her head around farting within her own family, and from a discussion with her husband about how we treat them.
“It’s a privilege to be able to create a book for kids.” – Zoë

About the Contributor
Before entering the exciting world of books, Bronwyn served in the Royal Australian Air Force, travelled extensively and worked (still does!) as a barista on the weekends. Books are her true passion. Bronwyn's debut fantasy novel Relic is coming out in 2019 with indie publishing house Talem Press. They are to publish her entire trilogy called The Relic Trilogy. In her spare time, Bronwyn writes, reads and enjoys keeping fit (which she undoes by eating loads of chocolate) with Martial Arts and personal training. She can't answer what her favourite book is but she has a soft spot for Peter Pan (J.M Barrie), Outlander (Diana Gabaldon), Stardust (Neil Gaiman), The Illuminae Files (Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman) and Six of Crows (Leigh Bardugo). Fantasy, sci-fi and YA make up the majority of her bookshelves.
