Willy and Wally are windscreen wipers. They’re what now? They are windscreen wipers, you know those things that keep car windscreens clear when it rains or snows. But they’re very special windscreen wipers. These windscreen wipers come to life when people (that’s you and me) are not looking. Next time you are in a car with your family, take a look. But don’t touch them! They may be special too.

Our mischievous windscreen wipers (as in cheeky monkeys!), love to go on adventures in their home town of Bryson-on-the-Walk. When they do they are helped by their friends. There’s Milly and Molly the mirrors, ’Enery the engine, Horatio the headlight and Boddington the bumper.


I first met Willy and Wally on a journey to London many, many years ago. It was raining and they did a grand job in keeping the windscreen clear and so kept me safe. Of course I didn’t know their names back then but I soon found out….


Find out what happens in this their first adventure when they hear a very strange noise coming from the back of their car.

    “Willy and Wally has gone down well with the grandkids. Helen read it 4 times to them over the weekend and they loved it

  • Kevin Thomson

    I received my copies of Willy and Wally the Windscreen Wipers on Thursday afternoon. I knew my daughter’s family were off to France on the Sunday so early on Friday I put a copy of the book in the post and crossed my fingers.

    It worked. On Saturday morning I received a picture of my granddaughter proudly holding her copy of the book. A little later, I received a call from her to talk about the book. She loved it. She especially loved the fact that she knew who wrote it. Her Grandfather


  • Diana

    Fantastic book, we love reading it to our little girls. They know all the names of all the characters already!

  • TF + Grandson Glasgow

    A joyful journey of alliteration as windscreen wipers Willy and Wally mobilise Team Car to solve the mystery of a sinister sound in Car's boot.

    Join in with the delightfully drawn characters as they have to work together to find the answer......but will Willy and Wally and their chums unravel the puzzle before you do?

  • Huw Edmunds

    I read the book with my friends' children in a group (aged 5-8). I didn't need to put a lot of effort into making them engaged. They were entranced and loved the ideas that Kevin has created - I don't think they will look at a car without thinking of this book! Well-constructed and the illustrations were perfect for the age range. Lots of discussion points along the way.
