The minute my sweetie showed me the cover of Walter the Farting Dog by William Kotwinkle, Glenn Murray and Bay Area artist artist Audrey Colman, I knew it would get a mention here. How in the world would this wonderful children's story not immediately spark my interest. Plus, for those of you with long memories, Kotwinkle was the author of the novel of E.T. the Extraterrestrial; I thought his book was a great example of what a good writer could do to go beyond just typing down the scenery and action and pasting in the script's dialog, gentle and loving while completely faithful to Spielberg's masterpiece. A farting dog, gotta love that!
