  • Walter the farting dog

    This book was so funny. Even my husband enjoyed it. We now referr to our dog as "Walter" when he starts to produce foul odors. The story is just cute.

  • Grandkids love this one

    My pre-school grandchildren love this book. The pages are big and colorful. My daughter called with gift suggestions and told me about more, "Walter the Farting Dog" books available on overstock and prices lower than other stores checked. I have a strong feeling that my daughter enjoys reading "Walter the Farting Dog" as much as my grandchildren love hearing! This is a favorite with my grandchildren along with, "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" which overstock also lists.

  • Your dog is something special, and is part of your family. Someone to love no matter what. The theme is heavy, but the delivery is great - even stinky! The illustrations are very bright and the story is silly. We try to find the spider on every page and make voices for the people.

  • Book Order

    This book, along with two others ordered at the same time on Dec 8th did not arrive at my home until Dec 22nd. Even then I had to send an inquiry. The box had clearly been opened and resealed. These books were suppose to be Christmas gifts to be included in a package mailed to friends out of state. By ordering on the 8th, I certainly had an expectation that the items would arrive in time - they did not. While the books themselves arrived in good condition, I could have just as easily ordered from Barnes and Noble and been assured of a timely arrival.
