Boris loves to eat green worm porridge, even though it upsets his belly. When his belly starts to grumble and growl, growl and rumble, rumble and grumble, he knows just what is going to happen.
He keeps blaming Dog for the stinky smell - and dog is not happy about that at all.
This is a really fun book to read. My four year old grandson just LOVES it. The troll keeps farting after eating something that he knows upsets his stomach and blames his dog, each time sending my grandson into fits of laughter.
The illustrations are nice and bright and fill the whole page which is great for the little ones. The text is also nice and big making it easy to read from a meter or so away which is good for reading to a group of kids. I think any book that keeps a four year old interested from cover to cover and eager to read again and again is a real winner!
Gross stuff like the food the troll ate and farting will always amuse a little boy. I would recommend this to any parent with boys especially. It not only covers the gross topics that they love, as well as shifting blame, but it also teaches them the consequences of their actions which I thought was incorporated into the story in quite a subtle, clever and very fun for kids way.
