Steve Stankey is your normal everyday sixth grader, until one day he gets hit by a gaseous comet and turns into Fartacus — the superhero with extreme flatulence! Armed with the power of his butt, Fartacus and his genius friend Max Z save the day from the likes of evil science teachers and all else who threaten his peaceful town of Cleanville.
This is the first adventure for Fartacus, and also the first ever novel written by 10-year-old author Gibson Chidel. There’s a lot more to come! Stay tuned for future adventures against the strongman Sonar, the master mummified thief Rubber Band Man, the evil clown creation Jack in the Box, and a slate of other bad baddies. Fear the Fart! Fartacus, to the rescue!
I am a filmmaker, writer, and teacher. My movies are not good for kids. Too scary and creepy. But my sense of humor, as well as my son's sense of humor, is very kid-friendly. Much to my wife's chagrin. My son Gibson created Fartacus when he was nine. He has put his whole life experience into his creativity. Which means he likes to play around like a superhero. A farting superhero. So he's writing from the heart.
