His many adult books include The Bear Went Over the Mountain; The Fan Man; Fata Morgana; and Doctor Rat. A celebrated satirist, he is a two-time winner of both the National Magazine Award for Fiction and the World Fantasy Award.

He recently spent a year in Jordan, serving as an advisor to the Ministry of Education in Amman and setting up computers in classrooms. He has written radio dramas for the CBC and spends a lot of time doing public readings in elementary schools.

    Audrey Colman illustrated and designed Walter the Farting Dog, her first picture book. More recently she wrote and illustrated Francine. Her artwork has been featured in magazines, posters, and multimedia projects.

    Walter's family is holding a yard sale, but there are few customers. Walter, farting contentedly 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 is reunited with his family by doing what he does best.
