About Wally and the Whatifs
Wally and the Whatifs is a story a about a little boy who has a bad case of the Whatifs. The Whatifs are his angst, his monkey mind, his anxiety. The Whatifs plague him daily, and they are constantly breaking him. We see Wally fighting off the Whatifs to the best of his ability. Until one day, his Mom suggests he face the Whatifs and see what happens. He really doesn't think he can do it, until he instantly becomes friends with a little boy named Henry. His relationship with Henry and the suggestion from his Mom gives him the courage to start facing these Whatifs; this anxiety that has so gripped him. As he does this, the Whatifs start to lose their power over him, and by the end of the book, he doesn't hear the Whatifs at all.
This book isn’t just for children but for adults as well. We all have those Whatifs, and sometimes we are filled with anxiety and fear. The beautiful part of this, is that when we face what we are most afraid of, it lessens, it shrinks and it might even go away.
