This stunning new children’s picture book from award-winning video games celebrity Chris Stead doubles as a rollicking old-fashioned adventure and a fantastic teaching tool to help your child with their early learning. All built with pop-up text to help parents and teachers use the book to meet syllabus requirements.
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 his second adventure, Willy has a big idea: why not build a pond in his backyard? That way he can lure some ducks up to visit from the local lake - but his plan backfires dramatically when all the local wildlife turns up. How will he feed them all? And how will he clean up the mess?
Rejoice in the detailed, all original, video-games-meet-Disney inspired art. Plus, you can help your child meet early school syllabus requirements by using the interactive, pop-up text boxes to hide the story and let them interpret the narrative from the art and the facial expressions first.
Also make sure you also pick up Book 1 of The Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly, The Little Green Boat, which is a rollicking adventure involving a big wave, some dolphins and a secret island with a surprising treasure. Just click on Chris Stead’s name in the author field to find his other books.

Another amazing book of Willy Nilly. Fantastic book!
An excellent way to get kids to read
I read this book to my nephew, while he was not in a good mood, he snapped out of his bad mood because he was interested in the story and had a blast finding the bread on each page. He couldn't wait to find the bread on the each page as soon as I flipped to the next one.
a terrific adventure for curious kids
Chris Stead’s ebooks are a terrific interactive series. Be sure to read the instructions in the beginning on how to make the story pop up. I like this feature bc once you’ve read it with your little one, you can choose to keep the words turned off and follow along by memory, and focus on the gorgeous pics. Or, you can keep the words turned off and create your own narrative based on the action and expressions, Sound effects keep this ebook fresh. Educators and parents will appreciate the tips on learning at the beginning of the ebook. You’ll want to collect the entire series.
