Walter and the Wallet

By Billy Bloom, illustrated by Tanya Leonello

Walter Whippingdale is having the worst day of his life. The girl he likes is making googly eyes at another boy in his class. He struck out during recess. He broke his favorite watch. A giant pimple appeared on his nose. And to top it off, he somehow managed to get mustard in his eye at lunch! Walking home from school, his head is hanging low. Which is precisely how Walter spots a wallet lying in the street…a wallet bursting with cash. Suddenly, his terrible day is about to change. But how?

In a lovely, lyrical tale full of life lessons, first-time early fluency’s author Billy Bloom has created a rhyming gem of a character development book. Accompanied by Tanya Leonello’s beautiful illustrations, you’ll be drawn in to this wonderful, lilting story of childhood morality.
