    Warning: This book may cause flatulence. Walter is a fine dog, except for one small problem: he has gas. He can't help it; it's just the way he is. Fortunately, the kids Billy and Betty love him regardless, but Father says he's got to go! Poor Walter, he's going to the dog pound tomorrow. And then, in the night, burglars strike. Walter has his chance to be a hero. A children's beloved classic, this story will have kids rolling on the floor with laughter. Adults are permitted to laugh too.

      Verified Purchase

      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.

      Verified Purchase

      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.

      A good time was had by all as I read this book to the kids (and listening parents)! Poor Walter needed a different diet in my opinion.

      This was a Christmas gift for my 7 year old niece and 4 year old nephew, for Christmas. The book was a hit, and my nephew would make the family read the book over and over again.
