9780525472179: Walter the Farting Dog: Trouble at the Yard Sale

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.

About the Author:

William Kotzwinkle is the author of several children’s books, including Walter the Farting Dog; The World is Big and I’m So Small; and E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial. 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.

Glenn Murray, co-author of Walter the Farting Dog, is a supervisor for educational technology in New Brunswick, Canada. 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.

From School Library Journal:

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
