Someone has been farting up a storm at school and everyone thinks Keith Emerson is to blame. Unfortunately for Keith, it has earned him the nickname "S.B.D." (silent but deadly). To make matters worse, Keith's dad is a self proclaimed "Fart Machine" who really stinks it up at home. With the science fair quickly approaching, Keith decides he has had enough. He comes up with a science fair project idea to turn the foul smell of human gas into something sweet smelling. The idea lands him in the principal's office, and in big trouble with his mom. With the help of his little sister Emma, his dad, his crazy grandma, and Benjamin Franklin (great American scientist), Keith will attempt to make the greatest scientific discovery of all time, the cure for the common fart.
Keith Emerson discovered the cure for the common fart when he invented Sweet Farts. At age ten, Keith is a self-made millionaire who runs a science lab and is in charge of his own company—so what could possibly be bothering him? Well, his four-year-old sister’s newfound love of farting is causing all kinds of problems. His friends spend most of their time and energy trying to embarrass him for fun. And if that isn’t enough to drive a kid crazy, the big science fair is weeks away and Keith has no idea what to do for his next experiment.
Sweet Farts Inc. has two geniuses in one company, and it’s on! Keith started it all when he invented a cure for the common fart, but Anthony has a world class discovery of his own that has earned millions. Anthony is back from a trip around the world, and he’s on a mission to take over Keith’s Sweet Farts empire. Keith would love to take a few months off and enjoy his private baseball field and basketball court. Unfortunately for him, Mr. Gonzalez has really turned up the heat by entering Sweet Farts Inc. in the All World Science Challenge. The weeks leading up to the international competition will push Keith and his young company to the brink of ruin. In the latest installment of the Sweet Farts series, Keith will attempt to lead the staff of Sweet Farts Inc. into the All World Science Competition, defend his Empire against Sir Anthony the Farter’s power play, and accept a few unexpected and humbling truths along the way. Who will run the company as it moves forward? Your guess is as good as anyone else’s.
