Rough Weather Ahead for Walter The Farting Dog . . . .

<?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Walter makes his third appearance in yet another unapologetically silly picture book, this one dedicated to "everyone who's ever felt misjudged or misunderstood." The story begins when animal gas expert Professor Kompressor pays a visit to Walter's family, equipped with a contraption that looks like a cross between a vacuum cleaner and an old phonograph: "I understand your dog has a farting disorder," he says. At first it seems as if the professor's prescription of powders and potions is working, but one day, young Billy and Betty see Walter floating like a helium balloon over the trees, so full of pent-up gas he has become airborne. Unable to release his gas, the unfortunate dog floats over hill and dale for days and days.

Brand NEW hardcover book, in excellent condition.   Perfect for those also interested in the Grossology Series ( also listed in my eBay auctions and store ).

New hardcover books in excellent condition, some copies may have a remainder mark. Most copies do not have a dust jacket, so contact me if that is important to you. Check out my other Walter books too.





***Priority rate quoted is for ONE book or set only - the second may not fit into the flat rate envelope or box and more postage may be needed. ***

You may see additional information about this item (if it is in eBay’s catalog data base) if you check the Detailed Item Info and/or Pre-filled Item Specifics boxes of the Description in the listing.  The current Combined Shipping Discount can be found under the light gray area at the top of the Listing Page, or by clicking the “Shipping and Payment” Tab on this same page, or by going to the home page of my eBay store, The Alchemist’s Stockroom.  WAIT for a combined invoice as eBay usually charges too much shipping.


*some rare exceptions that apply to discounted shipping:  in regards to exceptions to the combined shipping discount, a maximum of 3 books at 99 cents each may be counted.  That is, if you win auctions for 99 cent items, only 3 will count towards qualifying for free shipping of 10 items.  Contact me for details if this is not clear to you.  OR you may have ten items that include more than 3 of the 99 cent items as long as the subtotal is at least $50. The complete set of Baby Einstein Discovery Cards:  First Words, 123’s, ABC’s is excluded from the Free Shipping promotion (you will have to pay to ship 10 pounds only, not the additional weight of the package) as it alone weighs 10 pounds to ship. There are also some other very large items that will be excluded, such as The Complete Peter Rabbit box set (also ten pounds), Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Library, and The Complete Set of Unfortunate Events....Please check with me first.<?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE GIFT WRAP SPECIAL  - Check today’s price (sometimes FREE) on my eBay store’s home page.  Just let me know if you want it and I will add the price to your invoice.



PLEASE READ:  I offer High Quality items at rock bottom prices and have learned as a seller just how much $ and  time I invest in listing, selling, buying, sorting, storing, and data entry. Add in the costs of shipping supplies:  boxes, bags, bubble wrap, mailers, tape, markers, batteries for the camera, and trips to post office ($4 /GAL for gas!).  Then add in eBay’s high fees, which keep going up (a full 25% of my net sales goes just to pay my eBay and PayPal fees!!).  Still we are here for great buys & bargains.  The USPS raised shipping rates TWICE this past year!  In the past I have taken the hit, but I can no longer absorb these costs and in turn have no choice but to pass them along to the consumer this time.   Buyers:  PLEASE give sellers a break; they invest a lot of time, $ and stress, just trying to be fair, without giving items away.  You also deserve to be treated fairly.  Where else can you sell, shop, and buy what you want from the comfort of your own home?  So please do not nickel-and-dime me to death, and note that “cherry pickers” are not welcome.  You can pay full price in a brick-and-mortar outlet for that privilege.  Thanks for reading this and understanding my position!  Be sure to read all of my terms below.






All of my items come from a non-smoking and pet-free environment.


As a general disclaimer, many of my books may have a remainder mark on them, or they may be book club editions. Other items, like audio tapes, videos, and box kits, may have a cut or black line across the UPC symbol.  On some, the shrink-wrap may be coming loose.  Email for detailed specifics on the item you are interested in if you have any concerns, and I will examine the item and report back to you. I am very busy and often forgetful so if you do not hear from me within a day please email me again as a reminder.  My memory is not good any more so oversights do happen accidentally but never intentionally.


All of my items are new unless noted in the description. I do my best to describe all items accurately and honestly. Some books may have minor imperfections from storage and transportation such as small scratches or dings and some will have remainder marks on the bottom of the book but major flaws are noted in the auction description. Major flaws are defined as box cutter cuts, large tears on book jackets, squashed boxes, and torn pages etc. and are usually listed as Clearance or Mark down items because of these flaws.  If you are the kind of person who likes to “cherry-pick” the best copy in the book store, please do not buy from me.  Instead go to your local retail outlet and pay full price.  My books typically sell for half of the typical retail price, and although I am picky myself, I believe that a minor imperfection such as a remainder mark is a small price to pay for getting a book at about half price. Also, Imperfect and inventory Clearance Items:  Sales are final, no return and no refund.


If the dust jacket  on a book is important to you please check with me first before you bid to make sure the book in fact does have a dust jacket and remind me again when you pay, as often they have slight tears or imperfections or they may be missing. Again, re-read the above about cherry pickers. Many times after selling out of my copies with dust jackets, I reorder and the new lot does not come with the dust jacket, but I have used the same old listing.   


Shipping & Handling amounts & combined shipping discounts are subject to change at any time as the USPS raises its rates.  Look for the information on the listing page as outlined above or the home page of my store regarding discounts, and if you can't find it, email me. 


If you are paying for multiple items, they MUST be made on ONE  PayPal invoice.  Please WAIT for the invoice so that I do not have to hassle with a refund - in fact, my general policy is that I do NOT refund excess shipping charges paid. (Instead, I often include an extra item for free).  Just let me know when you are done shopping and I will send the invoice.  Please do not pay first for everything and then ask for a refund on shipping in case you paid before waiting for my adjusted invoice as I will add on a service charge for that adjustment.  EBay’s checkout system usually does not give the right amount for shipping charges (usually way too high).

I am not responsible for wrong or undeliverable addresses.  Buyer will be responsible for additional shipping costs in the case of wrong or undeliverable addresses.


Any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  When you are done shopping I will send you an invoice for the total with combined shipping.  If you want or need it fast, I will give you a quote for expedited priority shipping.  I have a very bad memory so please do not hesitate to contact me more than once to answer a question in case you have somehow fallen through the cracks.  I sell hundreds of books each month (or week during the holidays) and I sometimes have a hard time keeping track of everything even with eBay’s Selling Manager program.  Buyers reading this are entitled to a 50 cent discount for their order (NOT per book) when they notify me of having read of this reward and before paying, just let me know when you make your purchase and I will apply a seller discount to your final invoice. I will not give you a refund/credit after payment is made.  It always pays to read!


If you feel I've misrepresented the condition of any item - PLEASE CONTACT ME. I pride myself on being an honest eBay seller - as my feedback will reflect - I ask the same from my customers. Your complete satisfaction is my goal. By placing a bid on this item you agree to my terms.  PLEASE  READ ALL  TERMS  BEFORE  YOU  BUY OR  BID! 


More information, Policies, and “Fine Print”:


PAYMENT:  EBay now only allows PayPal unless there is local pick up (contact me for different forms of payment requests for local pick up).  Please pay within 3 days of purchase. Unpaid item reminders are sent out automatically after 3 days for ALL buyers so please do not take it personally. You must use PayPal and have a current valid PayPal -confirmed shipping address to receive delivery confirmation. Sorry, NO personal checks.  Washington state residents pay sales tax.


TRACKING  - Where is your package?   Tracking information is now available on each buyer’s  “My eBay” Summary page so look there first.   PLEASE check there or on the "Order Details" link in the ended auction and postal links which appear there before e-mailing me to ask when it was mailed.  You can also log into your PayPal account to check the status of your shipment.  You should receive an automatically generated email from PayPal shipping when I print your label, which will include a tracking number through USPS for media mail.  Your delivery usually takes 4 to 9 business days continental US, but occasionally can take up to 2 weeks or longer, especially to the East Coast from where I live in the Pacific North West.  Alaska, Hawaii, PR and APO/FPO addresses may take 3-5 weeks in shipment.  Please also remember that you paid for Media shipping, which is cheap but not an expedited service.  Occasionally I do not print labels but use USPS postage stamps (often for items shipping by first class such as Quidditch & Fantastic Beasts) and so I will not be able to provide tracking information for you.


MEDIA SHIPPING RATE - This is the way that most books, CD's, DVDs, and tapes are mailed. It is sometimes slow and can be as slow as 2 weeks or longer for domestic packages, but usually 4 to 9 business days. This is the standard method of shipment unless you upgrade to Priority Mail for a substantial increase in cost.


PROMPT SHIPMENT - Shipment is almost always made within 24 hours of receiving payment. I often am able to ship the same day.  I will do everything to get your item(s) to the Post Office as soon as I can, usually the same or next day when after payment is received.  HOWEVER,  I do not control how the USPS fulfills their part of this transaction.  I can not be responsible for delays of the USPS, especially around the holidays.


INVENTORY SHORTAGE:  From time to time I can't locate your item on the shelf due to an incorrect inventory count.  Despite my attempts to manage an inventory that has about 5000 titles, occasionally I go to ship a book and cannot find it on the shelf.  I hate this more than you do.  If this happens, a full refund will be given.  I am in the process of considering purchasing a barcode scanning and inventory management system to help eliminate these errors.  When this happens, I generally offer the buyer a $3 credit towards their next purchase if made within 3 months of the original transaction.


RETURN  POLICY:   Occasionally an item may slip by with a slight defect I did not notice.  Contact me within 14 days of receipt for money back or exchange.  If I no longer have the same item, I will give you store credit or cash refund.  Read the listing carefully & look at pre-filled item specifics.  I'm not responsible for your inability to read or change your mind, but am flexible and willing to work with you for our mutual satisfaction.  More time is allowed during Christmas holiday.  If the items are not as described, I will give a full refund including return postage, or a partial refund with the items kept (You must contact me first before returning items!).  If the item is as described but you are unhappy with it because you made a mistake in selection or did not read the entire listing and recived a product with a remainder mark, I will try to work with you.  Read the listing very carefully and look at the pre-filled item specifics.  I am not responsible for your inability to read the listing, but I am flexible and willing to work with you to insure customer satisfaction. Refunds will be issued for purchase price only if item is returned undamaged within 30 days in original packaging (so you have 2 weeks to notify me and another 2 weeks to return the item). Buyer pays original plus return shipping charges unless the fault is mine.


FEEDBACK:  With the changes that eBay has made to this system, feedback has basically become meaningless.  I always post positive feedback after payment is made.  Feedback extortion will be reported to eBay.  I trust that you, an intelligent eBay buyer, won't consider relevant the odd negative or neutral feedback among the hundreds and thousands of positives as a mark of a bad seller. They are the result of an honest seller doing my best to provide satisfaction, not always succumbing to the threats of buyers who may be trying to take advantage of the situation, or the result of ignorant new buyers.  I consider leaving positive feedback first as just another way to reassure my buyers that I have done exactly what I said I would.
CHARGE BACK  POLICY:  Customers who initiate charge backs through PayPal are immediately blocked from further bidding or buying from any of my eBay listings. Please thoroughly read all listings and ask all questions before bidding. Never assume anything!


PROBLEMS:  If someone has a problem (rare) with ANYTHING I've sold, and posts negative or neutral feedback BEFORE communicating and giving me a chance to make things "right" - my involvement with that transaction ends with the posted feedback.  Occasionally defects are overlooked and should anything be amiss in your order, please contact me BEFORE leaving feedback so that I have an opportunity to correct the situation.  I never make any deliberate mistakes, and am only human.  Communicate and let me know!

TREASURES:  Many of my treasures can never be seen when using a regular eBay search, but they can be seen by going directly to my eBay store - Be sure to check them out!


APOLOGY:  I am sorry to have to state all of these policies, but experience has shown me that I have no alternative.  I would much rather project a friendlier image to my prospective and repeat customers.  More information can be found at my FAQs section, which you can access by using the link “ask seller a question” above.  Thank you so much for your interest in my items and for reading the fine print.  I wish you peace . . . .


Special Notes for International Buyers:

I'm sorry but I no longer give shipping quotes for outside the United States.   In spite of my warning that shipping typically runs 3 - 4 times the stated US cost, too many people ask and never reply back and I am frustrated with the waste of my time when no sale occurs.  I am not to blame for the outrageous price of postage for international mailings.  If you live outside the USA and still want to buy my items, look on the listing page in the pre-filled item specifics box and find the weight of the item, then go to the USPS website and follow the links to calculate international shipping from the USA to your destination country, add $3.00 handling charge for the packaging, inconvenience and paperwork and need to take the package into the post office and stand in line for an agent.  If the item is listed as a Lot of books, see if you can find the weight of one of the items and then estimate the total. Don't forget to add some weight for the packaging.  If you are a serious buyer, you will want to fill a USPS flat-rate priority mail box with as much as you can get in there since the price to ship is independent of the weight.  I will help to pack things very well and maximize your shipping value.  In case you use the metric system and not the English system of units, there are 16 ounces in one pound.  You will need to enter the weight in pounds and ounces at the USPS web site.  If you agree to abide by these rules, please e-mail me stating that you do agree and I'll be happy to remove the "block" for you.  Remember, I will no longer answer questions from non-USA bidders requesting shipping cost.   Please continue to read:


I cannot assume responsibility for ANY items sent outside of the USA.   Because outside USA items are usually shipped by USPS International First Class, insurance is NOT available. Any package sent outside the USA that weighs more than 4 pounds can only be sent by priority international mail.  DO NOT ask me to misrepresent the declared value on any items I ship or mark it as a “gift.” It will not be done.  I do not misrepresent what I sell, and I will not misrepresent what I ship.  Regarding outside the U.S.A. deliveries, there is no way to track or confirm delivery for a package shipped outside the USA by international first class mail. I ship ALL items paid for.  By placing a bid, you agree to absolve me of any and all responsibility for non-delivered packages. If you agree to abide by these rules, please e-mail me stating that you do agree and I'll be happy to remove the "block" for you.  Remember that I will no longer answer questions from non-USA bidders requesting shipping cost.


Washington State residents pay 8.9% sales tax.

Please feel free to contact me via eBay's email forwarding system if you have any further questions or comments about this particular listing or any of my other listings. I appreciate the interest you have in my items!
