Additional Information

Billy Pip is a young, shy boy who longs for adventure but after losing his father at sea, his mother has taught him to fear the world. Billy spends most of his time in a beached row boat locked to a big anchor. Here he reads about the world through his adventure stories. He makes a wish that the world would be a safer place so he could have a real adventure. While reading one of his adventure stories Billy falls asleep in his rowboat and his magical trip begins. He awakens in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean in his sinking rowboat, surrounded by hungry sharks. When all is looking desperate, Billy is rescued by a crazy captain named Captain “Big Red” Curtis. The captain is a massive, Scottish Texan, who wears a white captain’s hat and jacket full of ribbons and medals. He also wears a kilt and cowboy boots. The captain is hunting a sea serpent name Sissy, and makes a deal with a reluctant Billy that if he will be his First Mate and help him catch this sea serpent he will take him home when the adventure is finished. Throughout the trip’s wonders and tribulations, all Billy wants to do is return safely home. However, by journey’s end, Billy finds Hope, Love and Faith in his heart and he will no longer fear the world.

Billy Pip and His Magical Trip is a charming tale of Hope, Faith, Love and chasing your dreams! It has a little something for everyone, from adults all the way to children.

It`s about Billy Pip being whisked away by a storm into a magical adventure of chasing a mythical Dragon, accompanied by an eccentric Captain Curtis. Billy Pip only yearns to go home, but learns many life lessons along the way with the help of hope, faith and love.
Children will love the adventures that Billy goes through, and they`ll learn those life lessons along with Billy Pip as he goes through many different trials and tribulations.
Accompanying the story are many small eye catching illustrations, which children will definitely love and encourage them to read!

I heartily recommend this book as a gift to young children!
I think this story will appeal to many age groups. It is expertly and whimsically illustrated throughout. I have not fully completed reading the entire story, but am definitely intrigued early on in this story to keep going. It is truly an enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone, young or old. I hope this author continues applying his many talents in the arts (story telling, animation, and transitioning his works of art into the film industry) to share with all looking for entertainment, with a bit of life lessons woven into the stories.
Woody Woodman did a great job of illustrating and writing his original short story, which I truly enjoyed. Even though it might not be appropriate for very young children, I feel it is a good read for preteens and is easy to understand and to visualize the action. The plot was interesting and moved quickly. I would recommend this book to anyone with kids as I found it very enjoyable to read, with great pictures as well!
