Local man wants to publish a children’s book

Posted by wlpo on July 16, 2014

You wouldn’t think flatulence would make a good subject for a bedtime story though an illustrator from Peru thinks otherwise. Jim Piraino wrote Fartin’ Martin: The Incredible Gas Cannon for his son 14 years ago. Now he wants your help to get it published.

The book is about a boy who is a loner at school because of his gas but eventually the boy learns to enjoy school after making a friend. Though there is a moral, Piraino says the story is just for laughs.

Piraino says the story is popular with other fathers. He has launched a campaign on Kickstarter to raise $10,000 to print 1500 copies. His fundraising deadline is July 27.

Learn more about the book and how you can support Piraino by listening to an interview that’s up at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
