Author(s): Emily Winfield Martin
From the New York Times bestseller of The Wonderful Things You Will Be is Emily Winfield Martin's first book for little dreamers.
Ideal for bed time reading, Dream Animals convinces children to close their eyes and discover who their dream animal might be--a fox? a bear? a narwhal?--and what dream it might take them to. With a perfect nighttime rhyme and gorgeous illustrations, this book is irresistible.
EMILY WINFIELD MARTIN sketches, paints, and stitches to create imaginary worlds and characters. She is the author/illustrator of "The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer." Her store, The Black Apple, has been featured in national publications and on TV shows, including the "New York Times" and "The Martha Stewart Show." The inspiration for "Oddfellow's Orphanage, " Emily's first book for children, came from the real I.O.O.F. (Independent Order of Oddfellows), dancing bears, ragtime music, and magic and mysterium of all sorts. Originally, Emily painted portraits of the children and adults at the imaginary orphanage, and from the portraits the stories emerged--enough to fill a book! Emily lives among the giant fir trees of Portland, Oregon, with her fellow adventurer, Josiah, and their cat Miette.
