A burping boy. A family with quirks. Will their love for chocolate, candy, ice cream and soda burden them forever?
Brother's burping plague is matched only by his Sister's continued sneezes, Momma's hiccups and Daddy's toots. As he makes changes, inspired by his dog Peppy, he learns that his love of chocolate and lack of movement had caused the constant belching.
His family member's other ailments are also associated with crazy food habits and inactivity - each has an electronic device they cannot live without. Will the family be able to make changes to feel better?

". . . over-the-top characterization of the Everyday family will make young readers giggle. Brother's agency shows that even the youngest family members can help turn a family's problems around. It's simplistic but effectively bolsters the overt message. . . A goofy, gassy tale with an obvious but important moral." -Kirkus Review
