Author(s): Max Landrak
A book about creativity, comfort zones - and colour. A story about a curious and inventive boy that will make kids think about how each of us sees the world. Danny Blue lives in a world where everything is blue. And while there are many different shades and hues, everything is essentially the same. But then one night Danny sees something in a dream that is unlike anything else. He tried to describe it, but no one can understand what he means, and so he decides to create the thing he saw in his Really Excellent Dream (or R.E.D.). A wonderfully illustrated, off-beat story about invention, dreams and thinking outside the box. 'Max Landrak's first children's book is a delight . . . bound to bring forth giggles' BOOKS+PUBLISHING 'Danny brings a powerful message of welcoming imagination and diversity. With charisma, wit and subtle artfulness, Danny Blue's Really Excellent Dream is a colourful story perfect for showing children from age four that embracing dreams and openmindedness can make the world of difference.'
