Walter the Wanderer: An Otters Tale, on a Grand and Global Scale

We rated this book:


Walter the otter lived with his family until a storm blew through and destroyed their home. They looked for a new place to live in Scotland, which was very different from their home. In Scotland, everyone wore kilts, played bagpipes, and played soccer. After a while, Walter figured out a way to fit in.

Walter grew up and decided to wander the world. Although Walter met many friends along the way, he also saw animals that seemed sad or angry. He decided to give them a great big hug to cheer them up.

Will Walter’s plan to share love and kindness in the world work out? Will the positivity he shares come back to him?

I really liked the pictures in this book. I also enjoyed learning words from other languages from around the world. However, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book because I don’t think it’s a realistic solution to hug a complete stranger just because they are sad. I understand Walter was trying to be kind, but I think he could have shown kindness in another way without touching strangers. Overall, I liked the message of kindness, but not how that kindness was shown.
