Who Farted?

USD $11.99 Tax Included

Out now in ANZ! 

Was it you or was it me? A discreet bottom burp, long winded, infusing the air with a deadly pong. Perhaps it was a royal trump, or a princely purp created by the Queen’s gaseous corgis. Everyone loves a fart!

A stinker of a tale, full of embarrassment, mayhem and laughter, where nobody ever asks the question that’s too rude to mention … who farted?
