About the Author

My name is Dallas Clayton. I used to be a unicorn, but now I write kids' books. I wrote this book and drew the pictures. I hope you like it. My name is Dallas Clayton. I used to be a unicorn, but now I write kids' books. I wrote this book and drew the pictures. I hope you like it.


PreS-Gr 2-This exuberantly written and illustrated book about dreaming big was originally self-published. Although it is longer than the usual picture book, the sparely written, well-cadenced, rhyming text lends itself effortlessly to an engaging read-aloud. ("Then once you've got that dream/in mind please dream a million more/and not a million quiet dreams/a million dreams that ROAR.") Quirky, finely detailed full-color pen-and-ink illustrations depict "candy cane machines," "magic watermelon boats," "dancing wild animals with diamond-coated wings," and a host of other fantastically fun and silly imaginings. The large, shadowed font adds texture, emphasis, and pizzazz to the visually diverse spreads. Not only is this joyful offering a surefire read-aloud hit, but it will equally engage young children singly or for lapsits as they pore over the entertaining minutiae in the artwork.-Kathleen Finn, St. Francis Xavier School, Winooski, VT (c) Copyright 2012.

"Exuberantly written and illustrated--a surefire read-aloud hit."--School Library Journal
"An earnest invitation to dream big, and then bigger yet--Share with your kid, or lay it on a new grad or parental unit for some literary feel-good action."--Kirkus Reviews
