If Your Dreams Take Off and Fly by John Butler


If Your Dreams Take Off and Fly by John Butler

As a little boy drifts off to sleep one night, his dreams take him on an adventure around the world. He imagines vast oceans where dolphins leap through the waves; icy landscapes where penguins huddle for warmth and wild grasslands where hippos, giraffes and zebras roam free. John Butler captures each scene in beautiful detail, filling every landscape with a wealth of beautifully depicted animals and plants.
