Delivering Dreams Hardcover – 2016
One magical day, into the remotely quiet and peacefully serene world of one precocious little girl, comes a special delivery letter from her globe trotting Grandpa. The moment she opens that letter, she opens her heart and ponderings to the spectacular adventures, exotic worlds and unbounding thrills to come with every one of his wonderfully rich, wildly colorful and daringly adventurous tales. Within no time, she is his kindred spirit of imagination and exploration, taking herself on flights of fancy sailing the white-capped waves of the salty seas, soaring into billowy clouds as a daring pilot and riding into gusty winds with teams of wild horses. As his faraway world unfolds, it beckons this little girl to voyage far beyond her wildest dreams ... WINNER OF 2016 MOONBEAM CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARDS-BEST FIRST BOOK, PICTURE BOOK ...

The story tells of a little girl who receives letters from her grandfather about his travels. Then, one day, there is no letter for her, and "no day dreams." Where is her grandfather?
Perhaps the story is an allegory about the passing of her grandfather, since after "days and weeks," a letter, which is an invitation to travel, comes from "the oddest direction."
The girl's grandfather descends from the sky in a balloon, and invites his granddaughter to accompany him on a journey to "EVERYWHERE."
This story is also a "coming of age" story, about the time when our dreams materialize, because we have the courage, self-motivation, imagination, and inspiration to make them happen.
Of course, the young girl's dreams are delivered because of the good influence of her grandfather who has cared for her, and nurtured her, through memory-making and the magic of his letters.
This subtle and beautifully illustrated book contains an envelope and a letter within its pages, and the text of the book will surely weave its magic on all those who read it. I love this book, which will enchant young and old! - Suzy Davies
