The Loneliest Fart in the World

Maailman yksinäisin pieru

-   Pete Riski

Important and heartfelt message about everyone being valuable in their own right.

A new being searches his place in the world where everyone seems to know their purpose but him. Smoke warns of danger, Perfume makes everyone a bit fancier, and Summer Breeze brings freshness in its wake… but what could be the purpose of this new, lonely smell that has just arrived into the world? Eventually a burst of laughter leads him towards finding a meaningful answer.

Fatherhood prompted Pete Riski to create this heartfelt story about everyone being valuable in their own right. Pete’s story pairs beautifully with James Martin’s colourful illustrations.

The Loneliest Fart in the World became a bestseller in Finland with over 50.000 units sold!
