Great for children who love abit of toilet humour. NJ liked making all the different parp noises and we spoke about the different characters on each page. He's wanted to hear it everyday since getting it, so definitely a hit in our house.

This was such a fun book to read to my daughter. She was so shocked that all the way through it is about trumping. It also shows you how to make the noise which she found hilarious. A very good cheeky book. It keeps you entertained and gives you and child a laugh. The pictures are really good and lots for the child to look at.

I loved this book from start to finish and we really enjoyed making lots of rude noises during the story! The part that made me laugh the most was when we met a right royal stinker!

The children sang/ read this book to me. They laughed when they saw the title. Old Macdonald, bored on the farm, makes a time travelling machine in order to visit new places to find the best parps in history. They visit dinosaurs, pharaohs, vikings, and astronauts on the moon landing. A great read. We all enjoyed it.

My daughter absolutely loved this book, she thought it was hilarious! She especially enjoyed experimenting with the wide variety of parking sounds throughout the book. 
She really enjoyed the illustrations too. 
I think the historical refercecs were a little over her head at times but she laughed along any way. 
Overall I think it’s a great book for any Parp loving 3 and 4 year olds!

I can see how funny this book could be. The story is to the song of Old MacDonald had a farm, but instead he is travelling in the past and hearing farts from lots of different characters in the past. It has different ways you can make fart noises, with little side pictures to help. My little ones liked the illustrations but I think are a little old for the book, being 4yr old girl and 6yr old boy.

We have old macdonald heard a parp so i knew the kids would enjoy this book too. In fact they enjoyed it more as it was more of a story instead of a song like the other book. The kids enjoyed seeing who would pop up from the past and we spoke about each person. This book was funny all the way along and the illustrations gave you plenty to look at on each page.  A wonderful fun book for the kids to join in with.

This book followed the same format as the original Old McDonald heard a park book, however it didn't flow as well as the first book and was a little more challe ring to read aloud fluidly.  

The sound effects caused yet more giggles from both boys and made for a lovely light hearted bedtime book.  However my 5 year old questioned a lot of the sounds as he couldn't see how they matched what was described. 

Overall a good bedtime read for those with children who love a bit of novelty.

I read this book with my mummy and then again all by myself a few times. I liked singing Old MacDonald EIEIO VERY loud and especially liked making VERY loud parping noises in my sister’s face! My sister was cross but the book tells you you have to do it! I liked the pictures because they made me laugh - I liked the funny duck and the pig wearing a tutu! The characters were brilliant. I love to watch Horrible Histories so I know about Ancient Egypt and King Henry so I was happy to recognise them in the book. The best bit was when the Egypt queen did a ladylike parp! Everyone parps - even queens! The first few times I read it, I didn’t understand who the boy was at the end. I was so amazed when I realised that the farmer was the little boy as a kid and I felt very clever when I figured it out before my mum did because I looked at the pictures and all the toys and the poster on the kids wall belonged to the farmer! And they are wearing the same shirt. Then I noticed he is pointing to himself so I proved it was him! Now I’m not sure if it was all a dream because at the beginning before the story starts he is dreaming about it in bed. The words were hard but it was funny too. I loved it. 5 stars. From Skyla.

I read it myself (an adult) & to Class4year1 aged 5 to 6

This is a fun story that I look forward to reading to my Year 1’s when they return after the summer holidays. It is very comical for young children, however I’m not sure that they will understand the historical references, particularly as no detail is included about them. I thought the illustrations were bright and enjoyable and I particularly liked the ending; something that I think my class will love too.

We were excited to win this book as we love the original one - toilet humour goes down well in this house!
Sadly, we didn’t feel that this was nearly as good. It seems to be trying to give a trip through historical periods, but it is rushed and disconnected, in our opinion. It didn’t make us giggle like the first book. 
The illustrations are great and clear.
