Storytime special guest Marty Kelley, with Almost Everybody Farts

Saturday, May 20th, 2017, 11 a.m.

Join us for a storytime as special guest New Hampshire author/illustrator Marty Kelley presents his newest picture book, Almost Everybody Farts.

"Goofily irreverent author and illustrator Kelley delivers the ultimate blast of gassy, honest humor with his whimsical, cheeky rhyme about the oft-denied panty whisper. The subject in itself will elicit giggles, and the ingenious, catchy, and simple rhyme will compound those. But it is the color illustrations, alternating between half-page and full-page, loaded with lifted legs, floating skirt-backs, bubbles in the water, and a diverse array of faces squinched up in effort (to deal) or disgust (in having been dealt on), that are utterly priceless. A playful, punchy paean to the pervasive poot." ~Kirkus Reviews

About the author: Writer and illustrator Marty Kelley lives in NH. His picture book, Twelve Terrible Things (Tricycle Press), received a starred review in School Library Journal and a glowing write-up in The New York Times by none other than Lemony Snickett. Author Christopher Moore (Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff) called it, "An inspired work of dark humor." Marty is a popular speaker who visits between over 150 schools a year throughout New England and beyond. Marty has been a second-grade teacher, a drummer, and a baker, but by far his favorite job has been writing and illustrating children's books.

Grandmas fart. Teachers fart. Terrifying creatures fart. But . . . is there someone who DOESN'T fart?
