Description

Good Families Don't is Munsch's funniest book yet, about a risqué subject that is guaranteed to have children--and adults--rolling in the aisles.

When Carmen tries to tell her parents that there is a big fart lying on her bed, they don't believe her.  "Good families like ours," they tell her, "do not have farts."  But when they go upstairs to see, the fart attacks them--as it does the similarly disbelieving police when they arrive.  Carmen is left to deal with the situation on her own, which she does with the help of a rose.
