Zoë Foster Blake: My challenge was to make a fart loveable.

by |December 21, 2017

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
