Synopsis: Based on the simple concept of dreaming big, "An Awesome Book" is the inspiring debut work of Los Angeles writer/artist Clayton. Full color.

Review: 4 Stars - An Awesome Book by author, illustrator Dallas Clayton shares such an important message for readers of all ages.

The message is pretty simple, yet executed brilliantly and it’s important – Never stop dreaming, dream big and that no matter your age, dreams can still come true. See, fantastic, right? This book might be little, yet it’s mighty in telling the story to a child that you should never give up on your dreams. I know as we get older our dreams get lost along the way or pushed aside, yet this book reminds us all that we need to take time to dream and to never give up on them. 

The illustrations were perfect and following along with the simplicity of the theme. I liked how they were big and small and was such a verity of fantastic and mesmerizing ideas. 

All in all, this would be the perfect coffee table book, or book great for right before bed. The message is set to bridge the gap between ages young and old. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am happy to add it to my collection to my nieces and nephews. Recommended to readers or book lovers of all ages.

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
