Book 1, The Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly - Action Adventure Book for Kids

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


This digital book is enhanced by sound effects, animations, interactive buttons and features a guide to early learning techniques provided by a school teacher.

Award-winning author Chris Stead invites readers who love kids books about animals, kids books about the beach and good old-fashioned kids action adventure picture books to The Little Green Boat. The first entry in The Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly universe - a book series for kids - it recalls classics from the likes of Beatrix Potter (Peter Rabbit), Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland), Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) and Mary Pope Osborne (Magic Tree House).

This action adventure for kids takes readers to an Australian beach on a very hot day. Willy Nilly goes for a wander into the sand dunes, where he discovers a little green boat. Upon jumping in for a play, a giant wave takes him out to sea. Stranded, he enlists the help of some dolphins, who carry him to a secret island where he finds a treasure map leading to a pirate treasure chest. But can he brave the crocodiles, bats, monkeys and other dangers on the way?

The Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly series likes to take simple everyday activities, but views them through the lens of a child’s imagination. Are these adventures really happening to Willy Nilly or are they just occurring in his mind? Perhaps for a child, reality and make believe aren’t necessarily different things. The Little Green Boat is sure to be enjoyed by those who enjoy the best summer books for children, and the best action adventure books of all time.

Customer Reviews

An interactive adventure

Chris Stead’s ebooks are a terrific interactive series. Be sure to read the instructions in the beginning on how to make the story pop up. I like this feature bc once you’ve read it with your little one, you can choose to keep the words turned off and follow along by memory, and focus on the gorgeous pics. Sound effects keep this ebook fresh. Educators and parents will appreciate the tips on learning at the beginning of the ebook. You’ll want to ollect the entire series.

Great use of iBooks technology

This is a great interactive learning book for young readers. And at least one older adult enjoyed it as well! Just the right amount of multimedia. Keep up the good work.
