The Boy Who Burped
Beth Lewis, author

Picture Book; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

A burping boy. A family with quirks. Will their love for chocolate, candy, ice cream and soda burden them forever?

Little Brother has a relentless burping plague. As he makes changes, inspired by his dog Peppy, Brother learns that his love of chocolate and lack of movement had caused the constant belching.

Crazy food habits and inactivity also contribute to his family member’s other ailments—each has a device they can not live without. Little Brother encourages his family to eat other foods and move more. Will his family be able to change in order to feel better? Read on to find out!

Reviews
Kirkus Review

A junk food–loving family learns the value of eating healthy and getting exercise in this picture book debut. The Everyday family prefers being inside to exercising outdoors. Brother loves video games and chocolate; Sister eats candy and plays with her phone all day; Momma watches TV while eating ice cream; and Daddy spends the day on his computer, drinking soda. Their habits lead to embarrassing noises: Brother burps, Sister sneezes, Momma hiccups, and Daddy “toots.” One day, the whole family seems zombielike. Brother, who feels isolated, turns to the family dog for companionship, and they spend the day outside. Afterward, Brother drinks water, eats a healthy dinner, and is surprised how good he feels—and that he has no more burps. The next day, he makes a healthy breakfast for his family, says, “Let’s do something together,” and rescues his family from unhealthy routines (and gasses). Lewis’ over-the-top characterization of the Everyday family will make young readers giggle. Brother’s agency shows that even the youngest family members can help turn a family’s problems around. It’s simplistic but effectively bolsters the overt message. . .W┼éodarski’s large-headed, big-eyed full-color cartoon figures, and their body-function sound effects, amp up the comedy. A goofy, gassy tale with an obvious but important moral. ~Kirkus Review
