Super Farty Pants by Paul Wennersberg-Løvholen is a story about Amelia who, while playing one day, encounters a strange-looking bug who turns out to be a sassy Fairy Godmother that can only grant very specific wishes. Amelia wishes to be a superhero and, with a swish of her tiny wand, the Fairy Godmother bug disappears and Amelia is left unchanged, or so she thinks. After a series of misadventure experiments, she discovers she is not invisible or super-fast but, with the help of a healthy dose of vegetables, she can use her super farts to propel herself through the air. She decides to go by the superhero name ‘Super Farty Pants’ and goes off to fight crime. Amelia then uses her super farts to stop a robbery before revealing her new super persona to the media and flying away home. After all is said and done, Amelia fully embraces her new identity and makes sure to load up on vegetables at dinner each night.
This story is a quirky tale with whimsical characters and off-beat moments of subtle humor. It flows as most superhero origin stories do, and the illustrations have a retro quality that supports the general feel of the story well. Paul Wennersberg-Løvholen writes fart humor without being profane or gross and I didn’t find it to be too over the top. Instead, the Super Farty Pants story had just the right amount of absurd, immature fun. I would imagine that ambitious children might embrace eating their broccoli after reading this story, even if it is only to bolster their flatulence. Amelia will fart her way through the air and into your heart.
