Hi there, Wally fans!


Yes, we’ve given the fifth title in the world-famous classic series the deluxe treatment. There’s a beautiful jacketed cover, fantastic additional Wally artwork, extra fun and games, and a dastardly (but utterly cool) Odlaw poster on the back of the jacket. Wow!

To celebrate, the team here at Walker threw a pun-tastic party, re-enacting some of our favourite moments from the wondrous book.
