Walter, the rootin'-tootin' pooch of bestselling fame, becomes an unwitting accomplice to a bank robber in this hilariously malodorous misadventure.
Walter's family is having a yard sale; but when nobody shows up, Father begins slashing prices. Then a kooky-looking gentleman offers to buy their gassy dog, and Father is only too happy to give him a good deal. Unfortunately, no one knows that this mysterious dog lover is actually a crook who intends to use Walter as a secret weapon for securing ill-gotten gains: He plans to fill balloons with Walter's foul air, then pop them to knock out security guards and bank customers! However, Walter catches "wind" of his new owner's foul plans, and after a cigar-meets-fart explosion, Walter makes his break and brings the police straight to the robber's hideout.
Featuring more of Audrey Colman's zany artwork, this sublimely smelly sequel definitely cuts the cheese -- er, mustard. Young readers will howl at scenes of wide-eyed Walter hooked up to the fart catcher and cross-eyed bank customers keeling over from the burst balloons. Walter's many fans will be holding their breath (and their noses) for more adventures featuring their flatulent friend. Matt Warner
