Someone has been farting up a storm at school and everyone thinks Keith Emerson is to blame. Unfortunately for Keith, it has earned him the nickname "S.B.D." (silent but deadly). To make matters worse, Keith's dad is a self proclaimed "Fart Machine" who really stinks it up at home. With the science fair quickly approaching, Keith decides he has had enough. He comes up with a science fair project idea to turn the foul smell of human gas into something sweet smelling. The idea lands him in the principal's office, and in big trouble with his mom. With the help of his little sister Emma, his dad, his crazy grandma, and Benjamin Franklin (great American scientist), Keith will attempt to make the greatest scientific discovery of all time, the cure for the common fart.

      this was a good book, but i would recommend this mostly for boys. It's cool how Keith, the main character, tries to create a candy to let farts smell sweet, which would be pretty cool actually. It was a funny book and it deals with life, it has a school with a science fair, a boy who wants to change his false reputation, and hilarious people.

          This is a funny book about a boy named Keith. HE IS NOT THE ONE FARTING. ANTHONY IS. It is so weird. Lets change the smell of farts.I like it but could be better. I think it is a good book for boys. Probably not girls.

            This book is hysterical. There were farts everywhere! I recommend this book for boys. The main character is a boy named Keith who is always accused of farting when it always is really Anthony, so Keith is inspired to change the smell of farts, and his sister wants her's to smell like pickles.
