Walk-It Willow

Walk-it Willow is the first books in the Clever Tykes series and she was the first character to inspire children with her story.

Willow loves dogs, especially her big, shaggy dog, Stomp.  Stomp is a real handful but Willow has learnt exactly how to handle him. When Miss Snippet knocks on the door asking for Willow’s help, Willow realises she can turn her passion into a way of earning some money as well as providing a valuable service to her community.

Willow enjoys walking Mr Snuggles (even if Stomp isn’t impressed by his sickly pink fur!) and understands that to get more dogs to walk, she needs to find a way of letting others know she means business. In order to be recognisable as a dog-walker, Willow sets about finding something to wear on her walks!Walk-it Willow cover

Willow manages to attract more and more dogs but when she remembers she’s booked all six dogs in at once, she faces a real dilemma. Should she let some of her customers down or risk taking all of them out together?

As confident as ever, and not wanting to let anyone down, Willow sets off collecting all six dogs for their walk! As the rain comes in and the dogs get restless, they become very difficult to handle and Willow faces an even greater challenge when Pepper, Mr Moore’s dog, manages to get away from her. What should she do now? What will Mr Moore have to say?

There are many valuable lessons to be learned from Walk-it Willow about honesty and mistakes as well as lots around enterprise and the associated skills and characteristics.

“Walk-it Willow” is available to download on the amazon store and is just £1.15!

I am a huge advocate of the entrepreneurial messages and characteristics that you are driving. I think it is a fantastic idea to instil the idea of entrepreneurship into children from a young age. This is a great way to open children up to the idea of not always following conventional paths and giving them the belief and confidence from an early age to pursue their own creative business ideas and ventures. 

James Caan, CBE - entrepreneur and former Dragon

“The Clever Tykes series are such a wonderful way to introduce ‘enterprise’ to children from a young age – I can’t recommend them highly enough, and strongly urge parents to read along with their child as there is no doubt the stories will stimulate lots of questions and interest!”


“I found Walk-it Willow easy to read and full of lovely messages that children can take from it. It touched on taking responsibility, problem solving, admitting mistakes and also the work it takes to run a small business. Willow is entertaining but very human. A lovely story.”
