Walter the Farting Dog
Genre: Picture Book
Suggested age: 4-9
Author: William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray
ISBN: 9781583940532
Publisher:  Frog, Ltd.

Walter the Farting Dog is a story about a true underdog with a terrible flatulence problem who, on the eve of his return to the dog pound, becomes an unlikely hero.

It’s not the greatest piece of literature but this story has been my secret weapon to breaking the ice with my toughest little reluctant readers and kindergarteners.  Who can resist a teacher-librarian willing to read a book about farting?
