Overview

"It's way harder being a guy than a girl." "Is not." "Is too." "Is not!" "Is too!"

So begins another madcap McDoogle mishap as Wally agrees to switch places with Wall Street (his best friend even if she is a girl). Teachers, parents, friends, everyone is in on the act as the two try to survive 72 hours in each other's shoes. It's a custom-made Wally catastrophe that includes: exploding Home Ec cookies (apparently Wally used gun powder instead of baking powder), baby-sitting a mob of out-of-control monster babies, and imprisoned 2.2 hours in the bathroom every morning to fix his hair. Last, and by no means least, Wally must replace Wall Street as a star in The Nutcracker ballet!

All in all it becomes one of Wally's greatest misadventures as he finally learns the important lesson of honoring and respecting others.

At the suggestion of their speech teacher, Wally and his good friend Wall Street agree to switch places for three days to prove whether boys or girls are better.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Wally McDoogle embarks on another hilarious misadventure when he consents to prove whether girls or boys are better. He is commissioned to uphold the honor and superiority of the male of the species. He has to do that or Bruce Breakaface will "break-a-his face." When he finds out that Wall Street doesn't eat breakfast and that she spends two hours in the bathroom in the morning fixing her hair, etc, he wonders how he's going to make it. The baby-sitting part he knew was going to be a snap. Well, he was in for a surprise. The whole thing gets out-of-control, the media shows up with big time reporters like Dan Rathernot, Tom Brokenoff and Walter Crankcase. To top it off the Governor, a woman, and the President, a man, show up with differing opinions about how this event should be announced. Finally Wally has to replace Wall Street as the star in The Nutcracker Ballet. In the end Wally learns his lesson and the importance of respecting others. Part of "The Incredible World of Wally McDoogle" series.
