Descriptions du produit


[OUTSIDE THE HOME]Betty and Billy brought Walter home from the dog pound. “Nobody wanted him,” said Billy.“But we love him,” said Betty.“Well, he smells awful,” said their mother. “I think you’d better give him a bath.”[IN THE BATHROOM]Mother walked in and said, “He still smells awful.” And that’s when they got the first clue. The tell-tale bubbles in the water.“He’s probably just a little nervous,” said Mother, hopefully. “His stomach must be upset.”But Walter’s stomach wasn’t upset. Walter’s stomach was fine. He felt perfectly normal. He just farted a lot.

Revue de presse

A New York Times Bestseller!

"Is there any reason to purchase this, besides the fact that kids will find it hysterical? The dialog is clever...and the art is quite ingenious. Seemingly computer-conceived characters—including Walter complete with a permanently abashed expression—are unique efforts, as are the smoothly colored backgrounds. All in all, it's a gas."

“Kotzwinkle and education writer Murray know their audience. Their simple strategy – just keep saying ‘fart’ – should have children rolling in the aisles during read-aloud… Colman specializes in reaction shots; in her surreal collages of photos and patterns, people hold their noses and a cat glances at the culprit.”
Publishers Weekly

“This children’s book is a delight… The story, by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray, is well-written and eminently readable, both to oneself and aloud, and the art by Audrey Colman is perfectly suited to the subject matter.”
Comics Buyer’s Guide

“Walter, a loveable and preternaturally gaseous canine, has brought dog flatulence (and as a result, flatulence in general) to the fore like never before… Walter is hailed by kids and grownups alike.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“A silly, heart-warming story on its own, Walter really comes to life through Colman’s whimsical, funny illustrations.”
Oakland Tribune

“A whimsical story about one of the more embarrassing aspects of animal (and human) behavior.”
Poetry Flash

“[Walter the Farting Dog] gives readers and listeners a chance to indulge in what is usually an off-limits topic, one of those things that everybody does but which all are supposed to disavow any knowledge of.”
The Education Digest

“When you put this cute story together with the wildly original artwork by Audrey Colman, you get an irresistible book that is as hilarious as it is touching… As well as being quite amusing… Walter the Farting Dog has a good message and illustrations that will make all readers smile.”
Curled Up With A Good Kid’s Book

“Spending at least 75 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller List, Walter the Farting Dog is a delightful children’s book with a title that elicits giggles that continue throughout the book… On its surface, this story may seem to have very little redeeming social value except to be an entertaining book to read to or with your kids (or someone else’s). But if you look a little deeper into its content, perhaps there is more to be learned from Walter. Maybe some of those little imperfections that make kids feel different are really things to be proud of. Maybe even some of the unpleasant things about us can work in our favor…even if you have to look really, really, really hard to see how.”
Paw Prints Magazine

An incredible dog story for children. Funny too even for an adult mind. A simplified joy for dog story readers. Reminded me of other dog stories like White Fang,, I AM HATED in The Usurper and Other Stories, Call of the Wild. I generally enjoy dog Stories.

Walter has an air about him that conflicts with his personality. How can he turn this to a positive?
There are only two unique positive things about this book. First the title is cute; it is bound to raise an eyebrow or two. Second there is a consistent story with a moral which add a dimension missing in "Oh see Jane" books.
Be sure to read the livelier sequel. This may become a series. It may even possible air.

Putting things in perspective 21 septembre 2004
Par chefdevergue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Is this the greatest kids' book ever? I certainly wouldn't try to make a case for that. Does it deserve the venom that some of the reviewers have directed at it? Hardly, but some people are coming as close as they can to alleging plagarism on the part of the author. Fart plagarism --- I never thought I would live to see the day.

Honestly, if anything written from this point forward involving dogs and flatulence is immediately going to be subjected to allegations of plagarism, then we might as well take the allegations to their logical extremes. I would note that John Irving featured a farting dog in the 1981 novel "Hotel New Hampshire," which I guess means all farting dog books since then are simply John Irving ripoffs.

For those reviewers who were shocked, shocked I tell you, that the book's content was, dare I say it, a little crude --- I would simply suggest that you read the book's title a little more diligently. There is no hidden agenda here --- what you see is what you get, and really, it is not nearly as vulgar as it could be. Good grief.

As to the book itself --- it is a fairly entertaining book with amusingly bizarre artwork and some pretty amusing dialogue. An adult with some talent with sound effects could have a great deal of fun entertaining the youngsters, as I did. Books that are as much fun for the adult reader as the youthful listener don't come down the pike every day.

Funny book for young kids 16 août 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Yes, it's a little crude, but it also deals with something that we all have and makes it funny. The tales of Walter and his gas had me laughing so hard I was crying. Young kids will get a kick out of this.
If you do story reading to yound children at schools, this would be a fun book.

Kids and adults both love this one! 9 mai 2005
Par Kcorn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Let's face it, even if adults put on a disapproving face when their kids start talking about farts, deep down they know (as do their kids) that farts are just plain...funny...and something that toes the line between disgusting and hilarious.

So Walter is the perfect character, a dog who has a gas problem.....and quite a problem it is. Just reading this book makes most adults and kids break into giggles and it is just plain fun to read - again and again.

The Best Book I Bought for my Brother 5 décembre 2004
Par Kylee Edlefsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Last Christmas, I went to find my little brother a present. He is five yrs old and loves books. I am away at college and wanted to get him something that we could read and have fun with together. After searching for a while, I came across Walter the Farting Dog. I remember when I was a kid and how funny farting was- I knew my brother would love it. When he opened it and I read it to him, he couldn't stop laughing and made me read it over and over again. Still, to this day, he asks me to read it to him when I come home and he even brings it when he comes to visit me at school! Every page even has a spider hidden in the picture- which was fun to find. This book will make any kid laugh, and it will bring any parent, or big sister, back to their childhood!

Extremely funny 16 septembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I.... You have to LIGHTEN UP A LITTLE. We all need a good laugh every now and then. If you can't laugh at this book then you are lacking a sense of humor. I received this book from an adult friend (co-worker)of mine for my birthday. We all just died laughing reading it. You are talking kindergarten teachers here. Poor Walter, his facial expressions are just precious. The illustrations are wonderful. Thanks for giving us something to laugh about!!
