Good Families Don't is Munsch's funniest book yet, about a risqué subject that is guaranteed to have children--and adults--rolling in the aisles.

When Carmen tries to tell her parents that there is a big fart lying on her bed, they don't believe her.  "Good families like ours," they tell her, "do not have farts."  But when they go upstairs to see, the fart attacks them--as it does the similarly disbelieving police when they arrive.  Carmen is left to deal with the situation on her own, which she does with the help of a rose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farts! Families and Fun! Do you think your family is bad? Well, think again! The story, Good Families Don't, is about a lot of farts! Awesome book for boys or anyone who enjoys bathroom humour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I am amazed by the talent of a man who can write this great funny book on a taboo subject, and can also write the poignant "Love You Forever". Robert Munsch can be on my guest list any time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How Could You! When my littlest niece read me this book, I laughed and laughed. I told her it sounded like a story written about my family when I was a child. There were no 'offensive bodily noises' allowed in our house. This book takes a witty look at how to tackle an 'explosive' subject. I wish this book had been around when I was a kid!
