From self-publishing wunderkind Dallas Clayton comes a book of illustrated poems full of wisdom, wonder, and whimsy. A boy with a beard tries to stay six forever. A frightful monster lives a million miles away, but is equally scared of you. A magic rope hangs from the sky, next to a sign saying "Give me a try." In this brightly illustrated selection of playful, often provocative poems, ideas run the gamut from stopping your lightning-fast running to help others keep up, imagining a store that sells colors never before made, or admitting you'll never know all the answers (and sleeping better at night). Following the runaway success of his self-published debut, Dallas Clayton's quirky, captivating collection makes it clear that this rising talent, whose work has evoked comparisons to Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak, and Shel Silverstein, exudes a spirit and style all his own. From hot new children's book author, illustrator and phenom Dallas Clayton, author of best-selling "The Awesome Book" and "The Awesome Book of Thanks" published by Amazon Encore. With an innate sense of childlike wonderment and fun, these poems and whimsical, bold illustrations will amuse and delight parents and children alike. Perfect for gifting any time, makes an excellent graduation present, and has wide appeal in all markets and to all ages. Hugely popular in various media and hollywood circles, Dallas' first book, "An Awesome Book", with sales of over 50,000 copies to date, was featured in DailyCandy, "Wired Magazine", and "The Huffington Post". The book also became a favorite among the Hollywood elite, featured on Gwenyth Paltrow's parenting blog GOOP and touted by Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, and read aloud by Joaquin Phoenix in his mockumentary "I'm Still Here".
