From the Publisher
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.
About the Author
Canadian writer, Robert Munsch was born on June 11, 1945 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania into a family of nine children. While working at a daycare center and telling stories to children, he realized that storytelling was what he loved to do and eventually he started writing the stories down. His first published title was "Mud Puddle." Other titles to follow include "Goodnight Moon,""Love You Forever,""Angela's Airplane,""Andrew's Loose Tooth," and "Stephanie's Ponytail." He continues to visit schools, libraries and daycares telling stories for free.
