delivering dreams

One magical day, into the remotely quiet and peacefully serene world of one precocious little girl, comes a special delivery letter from her globe trotting Grandpa. The moment she opens that letter, she opens her heart and ponderings to the spectacular adventures, exotic worlds and unbounding thrills to come with every one of his wonderfully rich, wildly colorful and daringly adventurous tales.

Within no time, she is his kindred spirit of imagination and exploration, taking herself on flights of fancy sailing the white-capped waves of the salty seas, soaring into billowy clouds as a daring pilot and riding into gusty winds with teams of wild horses.

As his faraway world unfolds, it beckons this little girl to voyage far beyond her wildest dreams ...

 

Beyond a "children's book" - a timeless piece of art.

This is one of the most beautiful and touching stories (for readers of any age) that I have ever seen. Each page - each illustration is a story itself where you can get lost in the beauty and details. Teamed up with such a sweet story of love and adventure, it is a book that you will want to share with everyone you know. And for all of you that were "grandpa's girl" you need to get this to relive your own memories (but be warned, the end will make you cry, in all the best ways).

Beautiful book for all ages, you must experience it's magic!

Delivering Dreams is one of the most beautiful, enchanting books I have ever experienced. This is truly a masterpiece for all ages, young and old. The gorgeous paintings on each page beckon you into the magical world of a young girl, a world of all possibilities and endless imagination. The paintings alone are exquisite. And somehow, the author and artist of this masterpiece - Lori Preusch - adds the most beautiful, rhyming prose that perfectly match the energy of each image. This book is like no other and you must experience it's magic! It is so powerful that it sparked a dream to create a 'year of adventure' with my 10 yr old son, which we have begun. Come on, explore your wildest dreams and adventures!

This book will, I am sure, become a classic. It tells the story of a young girl and her dreams that are ignited by her grandfather who travels the world. It is also a coming of age story and one that encourages us all to follow our dreams. Every household and library should have a copy. The illustrations are fabulous.
