About this title


Whether painting a toolshed or watching a school bully get his just desserts, young Wally Fromm always seemed to find himself in trouble. Spanning age 6 to 13, Bullet Holes and Ivory Soap is a collection of the now-retired Wally's most vivid childhood memories and deepest secrets. These charming stories of life in Cedarburg, WI in the 1940s-50s will delight with their humor and nostalgia for a time gone by. Readers will laugh along with Wally and his brothers, wondering just how much mischief a boy can get into with bullets and Ivory soap.

"I think it's fantastic; I couldn't put it down!" -Harold R. Nieman, Orchardist

"Fromm is a master storyteller. In each recollection, the reader is struck by how many seemingly small details ultimately result in shaping a man." -Kristi Budin, Former School Librarian

"Riveting. Wallace Fromm's writing took me back to my own childhood escapades. His attention to detail made it seem as if I were taken back fifty years in time. I could almost feel the crisp autumn air... The two gun chapters reveal a normal child's curiosity towards firearms and gives every parent good reason to teach their children firearm safety." -Kelley Andrew, Hunter Education Instructor

WALLACE FROMM grew up in Cedarburg, WI in the 1940s-1950s. After many years a school teacher, Wally began this book as a way to remember and honor the past. He now lives in Sparta, WI in his retirement.
