Wally’s Misadventure by Chrys Wimer



Wally had been cooped up all winter and was ready for a great adventure! His chores came first, then after his father reminded him of the rules, Wally was off. The first rule was to never go exploring alone, but when none of Wally’s friends could go, he was determined to go anyway. Look inside to find out what Wally faces on his adventure!


I love Raccoons, and Wally is adorable! But Wally isn’t your normal raccoon, he’s young and he is a mischevious little fellow that had a hard time following directions. When Wally decide to go on his little journey, he never expected to run in to so many problems and trying to solve then wasn’t so much fun! But the story is fun, a lot entertainment for your child.

I think this is the cutest picture book, and it teaches young children the same valuable lessons Wally learned. And I love the way the author uses animals to teach the lessons. I’m not to fond of snakes, but most kids love them, and will love the other animals.

The pictures are adorable. And I love the bright flowers, butterflies and cute little dragon flies that pop out of the forest in beautiful colors. I really like the illustrations. They make the story so much more fun. I encourage you to check out this adorable book for your child. And I think older children would ibjoy this as well. You can read it to your smaller children and let the older ones read it for themselves.

A copy of this book was given to me by the author or publisher. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions here in this review are totally mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.




I enjoyed writing “Wally’s Misadventure”!  Being a first time author has been a great learning experience.  The most important thing I have learned is how to communicate with the illustrators.  I would have an idea of what the illustration should look like, but they often visualized what I said differently.  It was a long process, but they did a wonderful job.

The characters and basic plot of the story came easily.  I don’t really have a reason I chose to write about a racoon, but I think they are funny to watch.  Ivy was the second character that I chose.  She was named after my maternal grandmother who lived to be 105 and loved music.  My grandmother’s favorite song was “One Day at a Time”.

The best part of the process was sharing the details with three classes of 1st and 2nd grade students.  I am a substitute teacher and I saw these students often, so I was able to keep them informed of the process.  They were my greatest cheerleaders!  I was able to read “Wally’s Misadventure” to them the last week of school.  It was a great hit!
