PreSchool-Grade 2-In this second far-fetched tale about Walter, neighbors have been avoiding the yard-sale table where Walter has been sitting all day. Unbelievably, Father wonders why! Yet he doesn't hesitate to sell the pup to the first man who stops by to inquire. The new owner, a clown, intends to use Walter for a bank heist by fastening him to a "fart-catcher" in order to inflate balloons with his obnoxious-smelling gas. As the clown pops the balloons in the bank, customers and bank tellers are overcome with the stench. When the perp arrives home with the sack of money, he lights a cigar and is launched across the room because of a gas leak. Walter runs out the door toward his former home, and the police follow the trail of $100 bills fluttering behind him. As they try to arrest Walter, he leads them back to the real culprit. Pages are busy with digital illustrations that give an olive green pallor to the human skin tone and a garish look to the clown. For those who appreciated the lowbrow, tasteless humor of the first book, this one provides much more of the same.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

K-Gr. 3. Yes, Walter is back, as gassy as ever. This time, he is at a yard sale, but Father doesn't sell anything, because Walter drives away the customers. Then a man wants to know if Walter is for sale, and while the children, Betty and Billy, are away, Dad makes the deal. The new owner takes Walter home and hooks him up to a "fart catcher," blowing up balloons, which the man assures Walter will be used at a children's party, where he works as a clown. "'Well, at least it's for the children,' thought Walter, who farted." But it's not! The clown, who is really a robber, bursts the balloons in a bank, and the odor is so bad that the loot is readily given up. A few twists, turns, and farts later, things work out fine. This has the same gross humor as the previous book and even more inventive illustrations, a mix of collage and computer-generated art. In fact, there's so much to see in the pictures, children can look and laugh for hours. Don't muzzle Walter--at either end. Ilene Cooper

We have all of Walter's books and they are precious! "I'm not going to buy my children books that have that word in it." Really? Give me a break! The colors are beautiful and bold. The storyline keeps your attention as well as your children's. Best of all.... it's just plain fun! My two are nine and eleven years old, and still love Walter as if he was our own. We have 2 dogs that seem to have the same problem as Walter, so these silly books really hit home for us!
Keep up the good work Walter!
