Since the most natural audience for a grossness contest is typically past picture books, subject and format seem to be a classic mismatch.

Synopsis

The Three Billy Goats Gruff meets Walter the Farting Dog in this irresistibly kid-friendly read-aloud picture book that has the flavor of a classic nursery tale but with a huge surprise gross-out factor that will leave kids howling with laughter.
 
Goblin is proud to say that without a doubt, he is the most horrible creature in the forest. But then he meets Troll, who begs to differ—how could anyone be more horrible than he is! And so the two decide to ask passersby for their opinions. A terrified man chooses Troll, but then a petrified woman opts for Goblin. When a little girl skips by, Troll and Goblin agree that she should make the final call. The winner? Read to find out—you won’t believe who it is!
