Reviews - What do customers think about Hello, Wally!?
For the young and not so young fan Jun 16, 2008
I purchased this book for my daughter who was born in Massachusetts and always liked seeing Wally on NESN. It's admittedly short and not too in-depth but very entertaining nonetheless. Big color drawings on each page along with a short description make for a quick read. Needless to say my daughter loves it but so do I.The price is less expensive from this site than most of the other places I've seen it. I feel this would make a nice gift for any Red Sox fan.
Wally the Green Monster Nov 29, 2007
this site is AMAZING! You did it again. I ordered the book through the MLB web site. They didn't have it---couldn't get it from the publisher. made a few clicks to this site and there it was. I was visiting my grand daughter in Virginia for Thanksgiving and wanted to bring her the book. Since Grandma and papa sam are Red Sox fans we are trying to get her interested. Introducing a child to Wally is a good first step. Thanks Jerry Remy, your book well-illustrates this beloved Boston monster.
Simple but fun Nov 2, 2007
Nobody's going to confuse this book with great children's literature -- the text on each page consists mainly of people saying "Hello, Wally!" to Wally as he goes about his business before, during, and after a game at Fenway park. The illustrations are very cute though. It's a good choice for Sox fans with very young children. (The listed age range is 4-8, but it's completely appropriate for parents to read to babies and toddlers.)
A low in children's book writing Jul 17, 2007
If you want to appreciate how bad, simplistic, and lacking in imagination this book is, pick up any classic children's title, read it first, then read "Hello, Wally."
We received this as a gift for our newborn son since we're both Red Sox fans. We thought it would be great. After giving it a whirl, I don't think we'll be reading this to our son in the future. It's boring, plain and simple. And if you ever thought to yourself, "Gee, I could write something like this!," well, with this book that's actually probably true.
Look, I love Jerry Remy as a baseball announcer. He is incomparably and endlessly entertaining on NESN-- I don't think anyone could replace him. But please, for the love of God, no more children's books, Remdawg!
Perfect for young Sox fans! Jan 16, 2007
We purchased this as a gift for the newborn son of our friends, who are big Red Sox fans. They loved it!
