Children face many challenges in their lives, and sometimes it is difficult to know how to overcome them. The 'World of Wally' books provide a way for children to experience life's difficulties through the eyes of Wally, a sweet Maltese pup who faces in his life, many of the same challenges that they do. Whatever it is that a child may be experiencing, it is comforting to know that Wally has also gone through a similar situation, and was able to overcome it. Wally was living in an animal shelter, wishing for a family to love him. He waited every day, until one day, it happened! Join Wally on his journey from being an orphan pup to being chosen by his forever family and having a place where he belonged. He couldn't believe that his wish had finally come true! His life will be changed forever! The 'World of Wally' books were written to be a source of comfort and empowerment for all children. Their purpose is to help children believe in themselves and their own abilities to face and conquer whatever life throws their way. With love and their family by their side, children will come to realize that they can do anything--just like Wally! You see, Wally is no ordinary pup. He is a pup with a purpose!

Wallys Wish I got the book for my 7 year old granddaughter. She loved the way it rhymes and the sweet story about a dog that wanted someone who would give him a loving home. Also it was easy for her to read, and is excited to see what happens to Wally next. Read more

Wallys Wish Wallys Wish is one of the most charming children’s book I’ve ever had the pleasure to read. For any soul, dog or human child, looking for a loving home, this is the book for you. I thought of children who have been adopted, and how joyful this book will make them feel. Dog lover or not, this is a book with such a happy ending. I’m looking forward to reading more books about Wally. Ms Peña is a very gifted writer. Read more

Heart-warming book for children I purchased this book for my daughter because she loves dogs. She was engaged the entire time I read it to her. When I was done reading, the first words out of her mouth were "This is my new favorite book!" and "Wally is so cute." This story is beautifully written. It is such a heart-warming story about gaining a family, hope, and love. I highly recommended it! Read more

A wonderful resource for families who have adopted children illustrating that it is love that makes a family. Read more
