Thunder Down Under cover

Thunderously funny!
Just WHO did that HUMONGOUS bottom burp?! Children will HOOT with laughter as the mystery of the great stinky cloud is revealed.

Thunderously stinky!
With side-splitting, rip-roaring rhymes from Timothy Knapman (Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bogey?) and bright, bold illustrations from Steve James, this spectacularly smelly escapade is a joy to share and read aloud with your kids.


"This is a terrific laugh-out-loud story about a rear-end explosion that will be a sure-fire winner with youngsters… Steve James’ wonderfully wacky, expressive scenes of creature consternation combined with Timothy Knapman’s hilarious rhyming text result in a picture book that can’t fail to delight. I suspect an initial read will lead to cries of “again” whether you share it with an individual, group, or class. It’s certainly been my experience.”
Red Reading Hub
"... A picture book guaranteed to blow away your little mischief-makers… Author Timothy Knapman and illustrator Steve James dig down and deep to deliver a stinking, stonking story full of raucous sniggers and gargantuan giggles as they celebrate every child’s favourite subject… farts!”
