"Dream away, dream away, sleepyhead, love
Set sail for the ocean of stars up above.
You be the captain and I'll be your mate.
We'll journey together, the heavens await."
From author Julia Durango and new illustrator Robert Goldstrom, a story of the dreams that are possible as you drift to sleep. A father and son venture into a dream and encounter some new and familiar faces and along the way discover the possibilities the universe can hold.
Accompanied by Robert Goldstrom's sweeping paintings, Dream Away is the perfect combination of dreams and reality.

About the Author
Julia Durango lives in Ottawa, Illinois, with her two teenage sons. She first fell in love with video games when she bought a Nintendo 64 for her oldest son, Kyle, on the birth of his baby brother, Ryan. Many hours of game play and several game systems later, both boys have long surpassed Julia in video-gaming prowess, though she still clings to a time when Kyle would beg her to beat the bosses for him in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Ryan envied her super-posh village in Animal Crossing.

Katie Belle has been writing music since she was eighteen. Now the mother of two young sons, Katie Belle spends her time teaching yoga and writing music for audiences of all ages. She lives in Ottawa, Illinois
