The Fart That Saved Christmas

The Fart That Saved Christmas

Why Read?: Review
Challenges: n/a

The Fart That Saved Christmas is subtitled An Adults’ Christmas Tale, and that is exactly what Jacob Morningside and illustrator Nadja Andrasev have created.  This irreverent picture books tells a story about really goes on at the North Pole.  The reindeer are tired of carrying Santa’s drunken weight and decide to go on strike on Christmas Eve.  It looks like Christmas will be ruined until Santa lets one rip and they all fall down laughing.  Morningside’s poem is definitely adult oriented; Andrasev’s illustrations have a whimsical flair, and while nothing is really dirty, they are sure not for young readers.  The Fart That Save Christmas will give a chuckle to adult readers who can still enjoy childish humor.

Rating: 3/5
