WHEN I DREAM
Stories and myths are worthwhile whenever they carry inside themselves a deep truth.
In "When I Dream", the author transmits an educational message with rhymed verses.
Throughout this story children learn how important prudence is.
The story "Ima Princess and the terrible Dragon, teaches us how often we are afraid of things we don't know. The algebra is symbolized by a frightening beast; it burns Ima's brain. But once we learn the mathematic language, it does not threat us anymore, furthermore it is useful and important in our life.
Robin Landry easily finds ways to express the immensity of universe, the position of our planet in the solar system and in our Galaxy, the black holes, and the difference between weight and mass.
The stories and suitable for children and adults. Easy to read. They convey the reader in a surreal atmosphere, in another dimension where the soul or mind soars beyond the material world.
The universe and its mysteries is in the air which pervades the book.
Sometimes the scientific discovers contrast with religious beliefs. The author tells it in a vivid way how Galileo was obliged to abjure for not being burned at the stake.
Particularly educative is the story of the Atlanteans who believed to be the owners of the world, but they froze their hearts, they were so powerful that they thought to be like God, but doing like that the mighty Atlantis went down.
This book is for everybody, its language is universal.
Ettore Grillo Author of "Travels of the Mind"
I liked how the author used a poem about Graffiti to make children see that there is always a better way; rather study art than painting on walls.
The descriptive poem on Atlantis would be my favourite; within one poem the reader can see what Atlantis looked like through the eyes of the author and form a good idea of what happened to the ancient city.
