Our very own Bryce Casey from The Morning Rumble has released a children’s book to raise money for I Am Hope’s Gumboot Friday, and we couldn’t be more proud.
The book, titled ‘Tummy Rumble in the Jungle’ features Roger the Rat, Bryce the Beaver, Mel the Magpie and Mully the Moose; four-farting-friends that live in the jungle together.
The official description of the book reads:
“This is a story about four very good friends, who live in the jungle and have stinky rear ends. They’re loud and they’re funny. They’re even quite smart, and one thing they all love is a really good fart.
“They might all be different but they know that’s okay because they’ve all got each other at the end of the day.”
The book costs $20, with proceeds going to I Am Hope’s Gumboot Friday - an initiative very close to Bryce, The Morning Rumble and The Rock as a whole.
If you’re keen to support the book but don’t have any wee humans in your life to give it to, you can choose to have them donated to schools or communities in need.
Bryce said, “I have two young boys Tyson & Reuben and I always want them to feel like they can get help if they ever need it.
“Help and hope is what Gumboot Friday provides by giving free counselling to Kiwis 25 & under.
“Our show has been raising money for the last few years through different fundraisers, and we are very proud to have done so.
“I have lost friends and family to mental health, that’s my why.
“Please enjoy the book, you’re a legend for supporting us. Remember, the world is a much better place for having you in it.
“You can buy Tummy Rumble in the Jungle for yourself or pay it forward to a deserving kiwi kid.”
We’re bloody excited to see kids having a laugh at the fart-filled-story, while also being reminded that differences should be celebrated and there is always someone to listen to you talk.
