A young boy named Henry embarks on a normal, average day at school, but his daily activities are hopelessly disrupted by his overactive imagination. Breakfast turns into a fantastical adventure through his cereal box, and his classroom becomes a whirlwind of flying books. Along the way, an off-screen voice scolds him to "Stop daydreaming!"
In a fun and unexpected twist, it turns out that Henry and his adventures were part of a young girl's imagination all along.
Exuberant and innovative, this debut picture book by comic strip creator Mark Tatulli is a celebration of imagination and the power of daydreaming.
