If Wendell Had a Walrus

We rated this book:


This story follows Wendell’s imagination on his journey to find a walrus.

Wendell saw a cloud shaped like a walrus and his imagination roamed. He imagined it was real. He gave it a name, told it jokes, and tried to play his favorite games with it, although he soon learned a walrus wasn’t so good at climbing trees. Wendel imagined he’d have “the most stupendiferous, cosmically colossal best time of their lives.” When Wendell accepted he didn’t have a walrus, he decided to get one, and a new journey began.

If Wendell Had a Walrus easily moves from one idea to another, just like an active, young boy’s imagination does. It’s a delight to read and re-read. The words and playful illustrations work so well together, readers will feel like they have their own walrus! It’s the kind of book that inspires a child to imagine their own dreams. A great adventure for young readers.
