Wally The Walking Fish

Author: Gary Lamit
Paperback: 28 pages
Publisher: BookSurge Publishing (May 28, 2009)
ISBN-10: 1439225419

Madison and her dog, a yellow Labrador named Cooper, live by the water. One day while Madison is fishing she catches a walking catfish whose name is Wally.

Soon Wally, Madison, and Cooper become friends. Wally introduces them to Betty the Beaver, and tells them about his cousin Frankie, the flying fish and other interesting nature facts.

The three friends continue to explore the water, beach, and forest until it is time for Wally to go home.

There were many fun wildlife facts in this delightful children's book--I even learned a few things myself! This is a beautiful book that encourages friendships and an appreciation for the natural world. A fun read with very nice illustrations.
(Thanks to the author for my review copy.)
