Walter Whippingdale is having the worst day of his life. The girl he likes is making googly eyes at another boy in his class. He struck out during recess. He broke his favorite watch. A giant pimple appeared on his nose. And to top it off, he somehow managed to get mustard in his eye at lunch! Walking home from school, his head is hanging low. Which is precisely how Walter spots a wallet lying in the street…a wallet bursting with cash. Suddenly, his terrible day is about to change. But how?In a lovely, lyrical tale full of life lessons, first-time children’s author Billy Bloom has created a rhyming gem of a character development book. Accompanied by Tanya Leonello’s beautiful illustrations, you’ll be drawn in to this wonderful, lilting story of childhood morality.  “Lovely…with great illustrations!  A heartwarming tale for both adults and children…you really want to find out what Walter is going to do with the wallet!"  Lucinda Franks, Pulitzer Prize winning author "Walter Whippingdale’s awful day takes an unexpected turn for the better when he stumbles across an abundance of cash, in Walter and the Wallet, by Billy Bloom. Rolling, rhyming four-line stanzas, accompanied by Tanya Leonello’s expressive watercolors, build excitement as Walter buzzes with the thrill of endless possibilities, and warm the heart as he discovers the rewards of honesty and giving. Perfect for a story-time read-aloud or programs that promote virtues and character building."Foreword Reviews
