The Secret Life of Walter Manny

The Secret Life of Walter Manny
Walter Manny is a young hero-in-training who is overpowered by his own imagination. Considered a weirdo by his peers, Walter is swept up into high-octane reveries of racecar driving, firefighting and secret-agent spying. Fantasy becomes reality when a fire threatens the classroom and Walter must learn to control his overactive imagination to save his best friend's life. This is a story about the power of the imagination in which the characters learn about self-control and respect.
