Waltur Paints Himself Into a Corner and Other Stories (Waltur)

Waltur Paints Himself Into a Corner and Other Stories (Waltur) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Waltur and his friends Matilda and Darwin are back in this collection of three stories that help beginning readers understand funny everyday sayings—like trying not to paint yourself into a corner (easier said than done!), putting the cart before the horse (how backwards can you get?), and letting sleeping dogs lie (not much good can come from waking up a cranky dog!).

What kind of trouble will Waltur get himself into this time? How much the wiser will he be for it?

About the Author

'Barbara Gregorich has written many early readers. Her love of expressions that do not mean exactly what they say led her to write these stories. She and her husband live in Chicago, Illinois, where Barbara writes bear stories at the drop of a hat.Kristin Sorra could not resist bringing to life the funny and endearing characters in this bookand finally figuring out just what those old sayings really mean. She lives in New York with her husband and her dog, who routinely steals her food, sits in her favorite chair, and wears her fuzzy slippers. This is her first book for Houghton Mifflin.'
