I am looking for a wireless mouse and keyboard that will work through walls at a distance of at least 40 feet.  Are there any models available that will do so?

It can be troublesome to get ordinary Wi-Fi 40 feet through walls and no Mouse I know is equipped with a Wi-Fi receiver. As far as I know you cannot do this.

Logitech never got dethroned as the top wireless keyboard and mouse manufacturer for decades now. And for a good reason. However, even their products are ranged at 30 feet (no walls).
Since there's a wall between it, you can't even see what you're doing even if there was such a product? So more sensible solution would maybe be a cheap laptop, connect to wifi, and remote take over the original screen (assuming it's another PC)

Finding Mice and Keyboards that will go a great distance is very difficult.

One that I have heard about is the Gyration Wireless Air Mouse Mobile.  However I have not had firsthand use of the product.  So I can't guarantee that it will meet your requirements especially going through a wall.

It boasts 100' (30m) wireless range.

Also looks like they make keyboards that also boast 100' wireless range.
