There's something incredibly charming about An Awesome Book ($15) and it's not just the surfer dude title.
It opens with, "There are places in the world where people don't dream...of rocket-powered unicorns and candy cane machines..." and details some of our society's less magical fantasies. You know, like breakfast sandwiches and telephones.
The bedtime tale is based on the simple concept of dreaming big and was created by Los Angeles writer and artist Dallas Clayton, who is influenced by Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, and Maurice Sendak. You can preview the whole book online before you decide to add it to your baby's bookshelf.
