    Love Walter

    I have purchased every one of the Walter the Farting Dog books to read with my son. I am now buying a second copy of this book for a friend. <BR/>They are fun to read with kids and to be honest I laughed louder than my son.

    my daughter loves this series!

    Very good potty-time reading. She loves to make the fart sounds every time Walter farts & we do look-and-find the spider on every page.

    Farting is inapporpriate

    In this day and age, children have enough problems learning manners. I don't see that farting is funny. Even though it is a dog, I think authors should be writing about something to make a difference in a child's life and not exagerate on something that is a natural part of life (everyone has gas) and draw positive attention to it.

    Walter the Farting Dog

    Read it several times, but could not fathom its appeal. I know kids like fart stories, but even though I can be zany for an adult, I just didn't like this. I'd pass on this one. 6 year old grandson not impressed either.
