I like the double page layout of illustrations with text along the side which makes the book easy to follow. Different colors are used to highlight sound words and key phrases of the story line. Readers will guess that Willy's parents' cautionary advice not to go too far will lead to many more adventures in future stories.
I don't know about you but when I saw Willy Nilly's bedroom, full of so many strange and interesting things, I just knew that I was going to love the book... You see, he woke up early because he knew it was going to be a great day! He was going to the beach and for a picnic with his parents! In fact, he was so excited that, when they got there and were going to start eating, Willy Nilly escaped to see what he could find!
I've always had some type of creative activity going on in my life and now believe that it is one of the most important traits to promote for all children. It might take awhile, but just by encouraging creative growth and stimulation, a beginning has been made. The book itself illustrates how important it can be. Not only do we find a stimulating story, but the art work is in such detail that younger children will enjoy picking out the various sea creatures and other items to be found on the beach, perhaps during the time before the child will have the book read to him or her.
Sooooo, just by walking along the beach and finding a little green boat... Willy Nilly's creative imagination comes alive... First by being swept out to sea by a big wave... and getting lost!
Fortunately two dolphins came along to help him! He asked that they push him back to shore...which they did...but it was the wrong shore!
Talk about having an adventure...me... I'd be scared when the only way to go turned out to be over a rickety old bridge...with...Yikes! Those creatures in the water have huge long mouths with lots of teeth...Do you know what they might be?
Fortunately, Willy Nilly was able to get across because the bridge was higher and they could not reach him! Soon he walked by a rock which seemed to have a map and it was leading to a treasure chest! Can you guess what he found in the box? I admit I never would have guessed! But it was just what he wanted at that point!
I think Willy Nilly will soon find a lot of little readers that are going to enjoy going on adventures with their new friend! This is a perfect gift for a little boy especially...but if your little girl likes outdoor beach visits and using her imagination based upon what can be found on a beach...I think she would enjoy it too. I did...except for those crocodiles...monkeys...and bats... Huh? Oh I didn't tell you about all of the creatures there, did I? That's cause there's a lot more to the story for you to enjoy...
I especially liked the format of this book where the picture and narrative appear on the same page. However, with the particular style used, there is no search ability so if, for instance, you wanted to find the page about the crocodiles, that wouldn't be possible... Just a note for your information--you know whether your child would be interested in finding specific pages to refer to at a later time. Also, when I pulled up the book on my computer, the print was small and unclear in spots... so do take the time to try out the book first to make sure you can read it on your device. As I said, the Fire was perfect for my reading...
Do check out this first book in a new series...I do recommend it highly for both those for which the book was written and for older kids my age as well...LOL

This story was very cute. I really enjoyed Willy Nilly and his adventure for food. A kid after my own heart! I think this story is very light and enjoyable for kids. I believe it will keep a child's attention throughout the story. I think, in the future, Willy Nilly should have a female friend go on these adventures as well. I think it would be great for young female readers. Working with children, this will definitely be a book I let my clients read while sitting in my office. Willy Nilly's adventures on The Little Green Boat are fun and require Willy Nilly to be smart and brave. These are great factors in stories for young readers.
I read this with my son (he read it to me), and he loved it so much that he asked to do the review (above). He has never reviewed a book before, but this story excited him so much. We loved the story and illustrations equally. It was vibrant, detailed and a lot of fun. Highly recommended!
