Princess Pumpalot in South Africa

Leanne Van Rensburg Alyssa class photo

FARTASTIC! A brilliant class photo from Grade 5, Greenfield Girls Primary School, Kenilworth, Cape Town, South African. In the centre of the photo, clutching a copy of Princess Pumpalot: The Super-Farting Bean Mystery, is Alyssa.

A BIG THANK YOU to Alyssa's mum, Leanne Van Rensburg for organising and taking this photo. This is our first (and hopefully not our last) South African pose picture. In one of her other lives, Leanne runs Hollywood actor Kevin McKidd's official website. Kevin many moons ago in the mid 1990s worked with Princess Pumpalot author Robin Mitchell at the Cadies & Witchery Tours. Kevin is spotted here posing with the first Princess Pumpalot book.

Since the first book hit the shelves in July 2012, we've  been encouraging people purchasing a copy of Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess OR Princess Pumpalot: The Super-Farting Bean Mystery to strike a pose with their book. We know it's not for everyone but we now has over 300 photographs in the 'Pumpy Pose Album'.

If you've purchased a copy of the book and wish to be added to the album, please let us have a copy of your 'posing photo' ( and we'll add it to the Pumpy Pose Album for posterity.

You can see the whole collection on Flickr.
