The world of Norm may produce gas by Jonathan Meres

May Produce Gas - World of Norm 3

It seems like the whole world has gone mad. His dad's obsessed with gas, his best friend has come down with a case of hormones and his brother is in dire need of deodorant. Looks like there's going to be quite a stink. Is life still unfair for Norm? ABSO-FLIPPING-LUTELY! Jonathan Meres follows up May Contain Nuts and May Cause Irritation with another laugh-out-loud story about Norm, a boy who can't understand why everything always seems unfair...An award-winning, laugh-out-loud series for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and David Walliams.

As soon as I saw this book I knew it was perfect for my son. He has grown out of Horrid Henry and has read all of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and has started on the Tom Gates series.

As the title suggests, there is a lot of gas and smells discussed in the book. Just the right topics for boys aged 9+ - and the fits of laughter that I heard while he read the book proved that this is just right for him.

The writing style is great for this age range. It is written as a story, rather than a diary but it has a nice style which can be picked up easily and a quick chapter read. The story is accompanied by some fantastic cartoon style illustrations which add more humour to the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves horrid Henry and diary of a wimpy kid.

I received this book through the Amazon Vine Programme.
