A fabulously flatulent adventure for young readers aged 5+

Newly independent readers will be entertained by this hilarious new book by the author of The Accidental Prime Minister

We are huge fans of Tom McLaughlin's funny books for younger readers. Packed with his trademark humour and brilliant illustrations, this new book is bound to young readers in stitches! Perfect for fans of Charlie Changes Into a Chicken.


It's Jack's tenth birthday and his day isn't going the way he thought it would: he's sprouted wings and can't get down from the ceiling. What's more, he's just discovered that he's a fairy. A real one. With magical powers.

He doesn't even have time to get used to the idea, because the world is in grave peril. Why? Because the unicorns have stopped farting.

Fact: rainbows come from unicorn farts
Also a fact: Without rainbows, human happiness drops to dangerous levels.

Can Jack and his best friend Charlie persuade the unicorns to parp again and save the world from sadness?

Before becoming a writer and illustrator Tom McLaughlin spent nearly a decade working as a political cartoonist taking the plunge into illustrating and writing kids' books. Since then he has written and illustrated near 30 books, including the best-selling 'Accidental' series, as well as working in animation design, script writing and an occasional columnist.
