The book 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. 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.
