Overview

Walter the Farting Dog: Trouble At the Yard Sale by William Kotzwinkle, Glenn Murray, Audrey Colman

Walter's family is holding a yard sale, but there are few customers. Walter, fartingcontentedly near Father, wonders why. When a man offers ten dollars for Walter, Father readily agrees. Walter wonders why. Walter is sad to leave his family behind, but relieved to discover that his new owner is a clown. Walter figures he will help the clown bring joy to children on their birthdays. But the clown has a dastardly plot: he will use Walter's gas to inflate balloons and then pop them to stun guards during bank robberies. Will Walter turn to the dark side? Of course not! He comes out a hero and is reunited with his family by doing what he does best.

My four year old and I read this in the store and it was hilarious. After we left the store it was all he talked about. So I bought it and we read it all the time. It is a sweet and funny story about a farting dog. The kids love him, but no matter what he eats he farts. The dad tells them to get rid of the dog. But then burglars come into the house and his farts run them off - he is a hero! Great story!

Coming from someone with some serious gastric problems... I found this book to be a real eye opener. It made me feel like I'm not the only person with stomach 'issues', and that is OK! Growing up, I only dreamed I had a dog like Walter. Someone who understood me. Who could stand to be around me. So don't insult this book. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who will be inspired from this book...nay, who NEED this book.

This one is laugh-out-loud funny. Kids and grown-ups will enjoy this story over and over again. Readers will love Walter and his special talent that helps to save the family's valuables. Walter is a hero!

First off, I have no problem with the topic of this book being about farts. My problem is that the story seems to just drag on, the illustrated characters are completely creepy -especially the burglars who break into the house in the middle of the night! I'm suppose to read this to my child at bed time so that he can have nightmares about men coming through our windows at night!?! I really cannot stand this book and I don't think it is appropriate at all for small children! Not funny and not entertaining.

I gave these books to my little grandson because he is so thrilled with 'the body electric'. Everything about his body makes him laugh. When someone sneezes he laughs and sneezes along, and a hiccup sends him into gales of laughter that brings tears. Celebrate the magic of the body, including the wonder of passing gas. What a piece of work is man! This can also be the first step to teaching the social manners surrounding body function, while still accepting the body as a wonder. Not talking about farting certainly does not eliminate it from happening.

Grades 1-8. Walter is at it again with his farts saving the day. The book was great about teaching kids to treat everybody the same even if somebody is a little bit different

This book is the kinda funny the kid's parents sometimes won't like until they are alone and can giggle freely. My husband and I are buying the Spanish translation since we both speak Spanish. Can't wait to get it and read it to the grandkids.

My nephews LOVE this book!!! People need to lighten up. Every kid loves farts and such. It is only a big deal when adults make it a big deal. Need to get the whole series for my boys. (Being the one that reads the book to the boys, it does tend to drag a little, but they like it and that is what matters)
