Product description


"Just bought this and read it to my 5-yr-old and 3-yr-old and they both loved it! They went nuts for the catchy intro tune and had a great time pressing the little button." – Wilsaahhh

"What a fun adventure! The kids loved it and I think this story might go on repeat for a while!" - Selikas "My godson loved it, it's now his new favourite book." – Gfunk

"We loved this adventure with Willy Nilly, especially when the dolphins helped Willy. My son was giggling throughout and excited to find out what happens next." - Kids Gifts and Toys

Product Description

The dolphins got on each side of the boat and began to kick their flippers as hard as they could.
Faster and faster they kicked and soon they were pushing the boat at super speeds over the waves.
Spray washed up into Willy Nilly’s face and his hair blew in the wind.

Discover the best series of picture books for outdoor kids on Amazon. 

The Little Green Boat is a beautifully written and illustrated imaginative story that will become a favourite in your collection of picture books about animals.

This kids boat adventure starts with an ordinary trip the beach….. But then when Willy Nilly goes for a wander into the sand dunes, he discovers a little green boat, which magically gets swept 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 Little Green Boat is the first book in the Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly series. These interactive adventure books take simple everyday activities, and 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 the book for you and your kids if you’re looking for:

  • An engaging story to keep your energetic kids still for five minutes
  • Colourful and detailed illustrations with lots of fun things to find
  • A book with an imaginative story and super subtle messaging
