Willy Nilly is a young boy with such a wild imagination that his simple, everyday activities often spiral into epic adventures. Through the eyes of a child, anything can happen and as kids dive into his adventures, they too are swept away into the realm of a child’s fantasy.
In The Little Green Boat, Willy and his family are off to the beach on a hot summer’s day. As he explores the sand dunes he finds a little green boat. He climbs in to have a play when all of a sudden a giant wave washes him out to sea. Stuck a long way out from land, he enlists the help of some dolphins, who push him to a deserted island. Here Willy finds a treasure map and if he can brave the dangers of the island's paths, such as monkeys throwing coconuts, jumping crocodiles with sharp teeth and icky, yucky screeching bats, he may just find a way home.
