PreSchool-Grade 2-In this second far-fetched tale about Walter, neighbors have been avoiding the yard-sale table where Walter has been sitting all day. Unbelievably, Father wonders why! Yet he doesn't hesitate to sell the pup to the first man who stops by to inquire. The new owner, a clown, intends to use Walter for a bank heist by fastening him to a "fart-catcher" in order to inflate balloons with his obnoxious-smelling gas. As the clown pops the balloons in the bank, customers and bank tellers are overcome with the stench. When the perp arrives home with the sack of money, he lights a cigar and is launched across the room because of a gas leak. Walter runs out the door toward his former home, and the police follow the trail of $100 bills fluttering behind him. As they try to arrest Walter, he leads them back to the real culprit. Pages are busy with digital illustrations that give an olive green pallor to the human skin tone and a garish look to the clown. For those who appreciated the lowbrow, tasteless humor of the first book, this one provides much more of the same.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
