My name is Gus... but most people call me "Gas." I wish it was because I could run really fast, but it's not... and I don't.

As educators and parents, we've all been there. Gas is passed and a variety of snickers, giggles, and negative comments ensue. But did you know that everyone and every living thing passes gas (except jellyfish and coral sponges)? If it's so natural and so common, why do we struggle with teaching children how to respond appropriately when Gas Happens!?

Award-winning author Julia Cook will have you and your kids in stitches as you read the hilarious tale of Gus, the student who passes gas in class. Join Gus as he and his classmates learn the brief biology lesson behind why we all pass gas, and the right right way and the wrong way to handle it when Gas Happens! in public.
