Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Warning: This book may cause flatulence. This is the French edition of the beloved New York Times Bestseller. 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.

Synopsis:

Walter le chien qui pète is a whimsical story about one of the more embarrassing aspects of animal (and human) behavior, now available in a French-language (Quebeçois) edition. 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 wit his smells.
