It stars Willy Nilly, a little boy whose everyday activities spiral into epic adventures as his wild imagination blends with reality and we see the world through a child’s eyes. In this, his first adventure, a trip to the beach on a hot summer’s day becomes a thrill ride as Willy discovers a little green boat resting on the sand. He jumps in, but is washed out to sea by a giant wave and needs to enlist some dolphins to help him out. They lead him to a secret island and a treasure map, where a way home awaits if he can brave the monkeys, bats, crocodiles, bridges, caves and mountains.
The author also specialises in helping other mums and dads make books for their kids, and there's more info for those who are interested here.
