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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
