“Walter the Farting Dog” by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray

Walter the Farting Dog” by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray
2001, Frog, Ltd.
ISBN: 978-1583-94053-2

Dee Dude (my husband) purchased “Walter the Farting Dog” by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray as a birthday gift for a friend. The cover says it is a #1 New York Times bestseller and that more than one million copies have been sold.

The book came with a stuffed toy of Walter the Farting Dog. Walter really farts. My cats were not actually that impressed when I showed them. You squeeze his middle to produce a particularly raunchy sounding fart.

I read the book and was enchanted. I actually teared up a little at the end of the story. Not because of any farts in the area, just because it tugged at my heart strings. This is a terrific book for children of any age.

Turns out there are a series of Walter books too. What child isn’t interested in farts? Even those who’ve seen the better side of 50.

This sounds like my kind of book, not only am I a fan of children's fiction, farting never fails to put a smile on my face.
