Willie Out West
Author: Rhonda Walker
Publisher: Westbow Press
Young Willie Walrus leaves his ice home to travel on an adventure to Big West, where the town's citizens desperately need help.
Arriving to cheers, he quickly runs into Old Walter, the One-Eyed Whale.
Colorful illustrations and action take readers to an Old West town where the citizens expect Willie to save them. Can he?
WILLIE OUT WEST is a children's book with beautifully done color illustrations and an engaging text. I read it out loud in one sitting to my two little girls and both were captivated by the story and the illustrations.
Both girls gave it five stars and liked it a lot. Believable or not, it is a very cute story and fun to read. As an adult, it was fun reading it with different voices for the characters. I recommend this book for children. There isn't a spiritual message, or even a life lesson, but it a cute story. 24 pages. $3.99 (kindle) or $12.99 print.
