By: William Kotzwinkle, Glenn Murray, Elizabeth Gundy
Illustrated By: Audrey Colman
Walter’s family set off on a family cruise, it is a special one though that lets them take pets. Everyone is having a great time until things are interrupted by a terrible smell. Walter’s problem is disrupting the whole holiday and he is banished below deck. It’s not all bad news for Walter though, at least he has some stinky cheeses to snack on. Then something happens to the ship, will Walter’s cheese binge somehow save the day?
This book is funny, if you like fart jokes, and in my house they are very funny. Walter’s family love him and accept him even with his problem. Walter seems to take everything that comes his way in his stride, even seeing what others view as a problem in a more positive light. You can’t help but feel sorry for Walter but I’m not sure I’d want him for my pet. Colman’s illustrations are distinctive digital paintings that give the book and the series quite a recognisable style. It is a story that is a lot of fun to read. In fact ‘fun’ really is the best word to use when talking about this book.
