As a daycare provider I have read this book to countless children. Recently I read it to my 3 year old niece, and she loves it too. I am not crazy about the illustrations or the farting aspect, but kids love to be able to shout out "gross"!

This book is not good for little kids. The story is about a bank robbery and a bank robber who uses the dogs gas to knock people unconscious during the bank robbery.

A cleverly funny book about a dog with a flatulance problem. His owner is about to send him back to the pound when his gasissues save the day. The pre-pubescent boys in your life will love this book.

This is an adorable (but not cloyingly so), whimsical book with a great message about how we shouldn't judge individuals and their seeming foibles. The illustrations are rich, colourful and have a lot of depth and character to them.

About a dog with a really bad farting problem who ends up saving the family from burglars by using his powerful flatulence.
