Beaver has always enjoyed hanging out with Wally and Wally's big kid friends, and in turn Wally has always enjoyed having Beaver around. But Beaver's social life changes when Wally, Eddie and Tooey join the boy scouts, but at age 7¾, Beaver does not yet meet the minimum 11 year-old age requirement to join. When Wally and his scout-mates go on a weekend long camping trip, Beaver has to come up with his own fun, especially as his only real of age friend Larry is sick. As Beaver's not used to hanging out with his classmates, they may not know that he is available to play. And Wally's friends not in the scouts, like Chester, may not want Beaver around unless Wally's there. So what will Beaver do?
Did You Know?
The song that Beaver sings is called The Monkeys Have No Tails in Zamboanga" , probably written during the Spanish American War or the Moro Rebellion. It was popular with US soldiers in the Pacific in World War II. See more
If Wally, Tooey and Eddie are 12 years old, they probably shouldn't be in eighth grade. The age group for a majority of eighth graders are 13-14. If they are 12, they should either be in sixth or seventh grade. See more
What kind of stories?
I don't know uh, stories about buffaloes, Indians things like that.
Well Ward what if Wally doesn't know any buffalo stories?
