Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Betty and Billy rescued Walter from the pound, they never imagined that such a cute dog was capable of such unpleasant and frequent smells — Walter passes gas constantly! But just when the dog seems destined to be returned to the pound, a remarkable event turns him into a hero, and his new family learns to live with his smells.

Review:

"Is there any reason to purchase this, besides the fact that kids will find it hysterical? The dialog is clever, and the art is quite ingenious. Seemingly computer-conceived characters — including Walter complete with a permanently abashed expression — are unique efforts, as are the smoothly colored backgrounds. All in all, it's a gas." Booklist

Review:

"Kotzwinkle and education writer Murray know their audience. Their simple strategy just keep saying 'fart' should have children rolling in the aisles during read-aloud....Yes, this lowbrow endeavor could be a crowd-pleaser but, like its topic, its disruptive effects will tend to linger." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

This story is set in a realistic ordinary family, and deals with ideas and attitudes about pets. The overarching theme is how one discusses with a young child "passing gas" - a new concept to very young children. It carries the message that we can all be heroes, whatever our quirks and habits.

Synopsis:

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.
