Walter's family is holding a yard sale, but there are few customers. Walter, fartingcontentedly near Father, wonders why. When a man offers ten dollars for Walter, Father readily agrees. Walter wonders why. Walter is sad to leave his family behind, but relieved to discover that his new owner is a clown. Walter figures he will help the clown bring joy to children on their birthdays. But the clown has a dastardly plot: he will use Walter's gas to inflate balloons and then pop them to stun guards during bank robberies. Will Walter turn to the dark side? Of course not! He comes out a hero and is reunited with his family by doing what he does best.

Editorial Reviews

"Kids will find it hysterical. The dialogue 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."
