A sperm named Willy, his main rival butch, and millions of other sperm take part in the Great Swimming Race to the body of Mrs. Browne. Never before have the facts of life been presented in such an accessible7or novel7way. Our hero is Willy, a little sperm who lives inside Mr. Browne with 300 million friends. Every day Willy practices for the Great Swimming Race. And when the day arrives, he swims faster than his 300 million friends to win the prize7a marvelous egg. Then something wonderful happens, and eventually Mr. and Mrs. Browne have a baby girl who has the same winning smile as Willy and who grows up to be a great swimmer. Hilariously funny, warm, and endearing, this is a picture book that appeals on different levels to both children and grown-ups. 3Fresh, original, and imaginative. . . . Allan2s achievement is in couching fascinating facts within the construct of a gentle, direct narrative. A little knowledge is a wonderful thing, and as the rest of the facts of life fall into place, Allan2s readers will look back on this book with a mixture of fondness and wry amusement.4

Willy is a sperm who teaches children the importance of practicing… Ain’t that cute?! I can even imagine a Willy the Sperm stuffed toy. Besides, what parent wouldn’t want to see their little one giving big kisses to a giant stuffed sperm?
