Book Review: "Willie Out West" by Rhonda Walker

Willie the Walrus really wishes he could go on adventures like his father does, but all he gets to do is hang out around home and play. While watching TV, he gets an invitation from Sheriff Octopus to help the town of Big West be free of the bully Old Walter, the one-eyed whale. Can he save the town?

I read "Willie Out West" by Rhonda Walker to my kids (ages 6, 7, 9, and 11) and they thought it was a cute story. There isn't a reason given as to why Old Walter is a bad guy or why the town is scared of him. Maybe so the readers/listeners can fill in that detail with something that they could relate to. The pictures were colorful but were very tiny (at least on the Kindle we were reading it on) so it was hard to see what was going on, especially with 5 people reading it at once. Willie had to think how to get Old Walter to leave the town alone and the townsfolk all worked together to achieve their goal.
