5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 27 April 2009
By Free Spirit VINE VOICE
My 7 year old son is autistic and although being educated in mainstream with support he is struggling with reading. I have always found it incredibly difficult to find books to engage him.

This book was fantastic. The pictures grabbed his attention because the characters faces were different to the usual illustration. Of course, he loved the idea of a farting dog.

Great story, my son loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Walter the Farting Dog 22 April 2010
Both my grandchildren ( Six & Three) thought the book was hilarious. The word Farting just seems to bring out the fun in children, the fact that it is mentioned on almost every page has them doubled up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walter the Farting Dog 10 Nov 2012
By suraqq
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wow what a brilliant story. If you have a child who is book shy, this is the book to help them want to read. The story amuses all ages, from 3 to 90 year olds. I have always believed in Dr Zeus or Funny Bones books to encourage children, now I have Walter the Farting Dog to add to my arsenal. This is a straight forward story, no repetitive sentences, just plain good old fashioned Fart Humour.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awful mistake! 15 Feb 2014
By DigbyS
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was horrified on opening this book: it concerns the adventures of a flatulent dog. I wasn't wearing my glasses when I bought it and believed that it was all about a chap called Walter going on vacation with his best friend. Now I am frightened to open my new copy of "The Crooked Timber of Humanity" by Sir I. Berlin. What if it is another terrible mistake?

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Blast! 16 Dec 2013
By John M. Ford TOP 500 REVIEWER
Walter the Dog farts constantly. He can't stop. As a result, he is misunderstood, avoided, and disparaged. He faces his life's difficulties stoically, at times even heroically. And he makes a difference to those around him. A positive difference, I mean. You will love him like one of your own.

The theme of this book will provoke gales of laughter from ten-year-olds of all ages. That would be enough to expect from it. But there is more. An important underlying message about embarrassment, courage, and tolerance slowly makes its presence clear. And lingers after the laughter has become silent.

This is a good book. Really, it is.

A good simple message wrapped up in a poorly written, awfully illustrated, and boring story full of terrible messages that over-shadow the good one. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars walter the farting dog
Brilliantly funny book. Children like it when naughty words are used. And so do adults! Those who have dogs know the problem.
