Wally the Walking Fish Meets Madison and Cooper by Gary Lamit

Young Madison and her dog Cooper are out fishing one day when Madison's rod gets a nibble. She never keeps what she catches, much to the dismay of Cooper's always hungry stomach. When she reels in her catch, the fish starts to walk about the pier! He quickly introduces himself, Wall the walking fish. Madison, Wally, and Cooper become quick friends and even pay a visit to Betty the Beaver. When Wally's feet get tired, Madison's mom makes him some boots.

Filled with beautiful and lively illustrations, Wally the Walking Fish Meets Madison and Cooper is perfect to read to your child or for those learning to read.

Children will adore Cooper who grumbles throughout the book about being hungry. Educating children in the value of friendship along with descriptions of the animals only serve as an educational backdrop to this whimsical and enchanting tale.

  1. I'm glad you included the close-up picture -- I was wondering exactly how fish walked! Sounds cute.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
