Overview

"Stay tuned for further gassy exploits." - Booklist, starred review

Jam-packed with potty humor, feats of bravery, and magical friendships, Fart Quest by bestselling author Aaron Reynolds and illustrator Cam Kendell is perfect for every young hero looking for a wild adventure.

After their masters are vaporized in a goblin battle gone bad, Fart, Pan, and Moxie—three lowly apprentices—decide to impersonate their mentors and pick up the mantle as heroes of the realm. But they need more than a fancy robe, magic staff, and book of magical beasts to be real heroes. They need a quest!

So when The Great and Powerful Kevin puts out a call for help, seeking the coveted Golden Llama and its magical golden fart, young Fart and his friends jump at the chance and embark on a journey they were destined for.

This title has Common Core connections.

From the Publisher

"Stay tuned for further gassy exploits." - Booklist, starred review

"The humorous writing, wacky names, lively, cartoonlike illustrations, and simple text will especially appeal to reluctant readers.” — Kirkus Reviews

"This is a happily silly introduction to the world of fantasy and tabletop gaming, and Fart is sure to fight his way into readers’ hearts, especially with the promise of plenty more adventures." —The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books (BCCB)

“If you love fantasy, funny humor, flatulence, and friends, then Aaron Reynolds has written the perfect book for you!” —DAN SANTAT, author of Sidekicks and The Adventures of Beekle

"Aaron Reynolds, along with sumptuous illustrations by Cam Kendall, has masterfully crafted a love letter to Humor and Fantasy in the form of an adventure that itself takes us back to our childhoods when every day was a quest to find acceptance, understanding, and, perhaps most importantly, friendship. I sincerely look forward to future installments with relish." —NICK BRUEL, creator of the Bad Kitty series

Three children set out on a quest to prove they can be heroes.

Bartok, a 12-year-old Black boy, was nicknamed Fart by the master he apprentices under after choosing Gas Attack as his first spell to learn. He wants to be an exalted mage instead of an average human. Fart and his group—Pan Silversnow, Moxie Battleborne, and their respective masters—are only three months into a yearlong journey. They must prove they can survive the wilderness of the Fourteen Realms while helping others and defeating evildoers in order to graduate from Krakentop Academy for Heroes. When the masters are obliterated before their very eyes, Moxie and Pan are ready to head back to the academy, but Fart insists that they should use the opportunity to demonstrate their bravery. After taking their masters’ belongings, the trio defeat a hobgoblin then set off in search of heroic escapades. Chaos ensues as the group comes up against giant bees, ogres, and other mythical creatures. Though the story is told from Fart’s perspective, Moxie and Pan are just as important as the three learn to work as a team and recognize each other’s strengths. The humorous writing, wacky names, lively, cartoonlike illustrations, and simple text will especially appeal to reluctant readers. Pan is an elf who is cued as Asian; Moxie is a dwarf who appears White.

A good questing novel for readers seeking a simple, lighthearted adventure. (map) (Fantasy. 8-11)
