Share Article

A uniquely original children's book sure to entertain kids and parents alike, complete with a poot-filled plot and a charming cast of critters.

The Blue Smoker of Barkwater Village is a hilarious new children’s tale from first-time children’s author Annette Burget Bailey. With a strong cast of critters and a poot-filled plot, the Blue Smoker of Barkwater Village keeps his city free from evil with a single blast of blinding blue intestinal gas.

Barkwater Village is a sleepy seaside community with its share of smiling faces and sunshine. Cloudy skies are few and chronic cursing is not allowed. The village also has the lowest crime rate in the county and remains a regular rest stop for sightseers trying to catch a whiff of a suspicious smelling smoke that supposedly circles the city’s skyline each and every evening at exactly six o’clock.

Barkwater is a caring, pet-friendly community with bunches of bulldogs, Boston terriers, and bloodhounds. But there’s only one Blue Smoker.

Booter Pooter, son of the former Blue Smoker, Super Pooter, has a dog-given gift inherited from his father—the uncanny ability to clear any room with his super stinky stench. Following a freak farting fiasco, Booter is officially declared the Blue Smoker, and Super Pooter’s stinky successor seeks to successfully smoke out any and all evil in Barkwater Village.

Loosely based on Bailey’s beloved but very flatulent pet Chihuahua, the Blue Smoker of Barkwater Village is a laugh-out-loud story sure to amuse young readers and parents alike.

Annette Burget Bailey is a former Los Angeles Daily News community editor and STAR magazine reporter. She is the author of Blonde Ambition, Postmortem, and Definition Murder. Bailey resides in the Los Angeles suburbs with her husband, Bob.
