Walter The Farting Dog Books

Updated on August 29, 2013

Funny To Readers of All Ages!

Although written for young children, people of all ages can't help laughing out loud -- even howling with laughter! -- while reading the comical Walter The Farting Dog Books.

These colorful, whimsical picture books are totally hilarious, absolutely outrageous, and offer just the kind of stories that children will beg to have you read to them over and over again.

Well, as his name obviously implies, Walter is a dog. He's actually a great pet dog, rescued from the pound.

The only trouble is, Walter has a little problem -- a constant, smelly case of very bad gas!

All Ages Can Relate to THIS Dog!

For everyone who's ever felt misjudged or misunderstood...

In these side-splitting books, the goofy canine gets himself into all kinds of trouble because of his gas problem. People are always running away from him because of his smelly emissions!

Walter is very lovable and tries his best to hold his farts in... it's just that he almost never can manage the task! However, he seems to take it all in stride, and he has a lot of fun during his non-stop string of misadventures.

The illustrations are just a little bizarre, yet perfect for being that way. The accompanying text is simple and straightforward. It plays the perfect "straight man" to the hilarity of the stories and their pictures.

Best of all, though, are the messages being given about loving others for being just who they are and being tolerant and accepting of any shortcomings they may have (especially due to circumstances beyond their control).

Walter The Farting Dog (2001)

Kids and adults both love this one!

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 tows 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. ~ K. Corn


VIDEO: Discover How Walter Wins the Love and Respect of His Family!

This is a great rendition of the first book in the series being read aloud and showing vivid pictures right from the actual book!

You'll never tire of the theme of family togetherness pervading the stories and pictures. Walter is not perfect, but neither is the family; as long as they love each other, it doesn't matter.

Walter the Farting Dog: Trouble At the Yard Sale (2004)

My son loved it...


Anyone who owns a dog will immediately recognize the sad, sheepish look on Walter's face that says, Yes, I just farted and I love you.

Rough Weather Ahead for Walter the Farting Dog (2005)

The best of the three Walter books...


Walter's stoic acceptance of his fate makes the situation even funnier, and his comic timing is impeccable.

Walter the Farting Dog Goes On A Cruise (2006)

"Already Our Favorite"


Walter himself, with his sweet disposition, lugubrious expression, and gas-distended belly, will indeed fart his way right into your heart.

Walter the Farting Dog: Banned From the Beach (2007)

Cute book....started a new holiday tradition.


Walter is fantastic. This is the type of book that almost makes me want to have kids, just so we could giggle together over the farting dog. ~ Jessica

LeapFrog® Tag Kid Classic Storybook - Fun and Learning for Ages 4 - 7

A good laugh for any child who enjoys dogs and farts.

This is a favorite book for my son. He enjoys they story, the dog, but most of all the farting sounds (what little boy wouldn't). The story is actually based on a series that I never heard of until this book came out for the Tag reader. The story is about a dog and his family going on a cruise, but the dog gets kicked off the ship due to his smelly farts. In the end he helps the broken ship with (you guessed it), his farts from the cheese he ate earlier. It's a story that will make any little boy laugh until it hurts. It's just not the most appropriate book I would take when going to someone else's house (unless there will be other kids around in a separate room). ~ Vanessa


"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." ~ Booklist

Plush Toys, Too....

Makes Delightfully Disgusting Sounds...

Walter the Farting Dog from the Katzwinkle and Murray childrens' book. Just squeeze Walter and he will make numerous farting sounds. Measures over 8 inches in length. A great gift for any occasion. Watch their reaction when they give Walter a squeeze.

If you just can't get enough of Walter, this is the plush dog for you. Like the original sized Walter, this large version has two farting sounds when you squeeze him. Soft cuddly plush and safe

for all ages.

VIDEO: Delighted by Disgusting Sounds... LOL!

Like just about every young child I know (and many NOT so young, as well), the sounds of bodily functions tickles the "funny bone" like crazy!

      I was looking for a review of a children's book about passing wind, and this lens came up in search ... but it's wonderfully funny and is even better than the one I knew about and was looking for. Submitting this one to the Happy Birthday Hans Quest and leaving an angel blessing to boot. Lovely job on this!

      It's all about humour. Have you ever seen the book by Robert Munsch "Good Families Don't" - also about farts... keeps the kids enthralled.
