This is a story that I titled "Strange World" and it concerns a strange and unique being that is suddenly transported to Earth in the middle of World War I in 1918. This story follows the main character called Wally through the decades as he learns and adapts to life as a human. Wally also meets several humans that in one way or another touch his life and learn from Wally. Wally never loses hope of one day returning home to his world, Suma.

The story is divided into several chapters which I hope to post as soon as I can type them.
There are chapters that have song titles at the beginning in brackets [], which I used to show readers the time period that Wally's character is in. Each song is indicative of the time period-like in the movies!

This is a work of fiction but I tried to be historically accurate when I could. Enjoy!
