An Awesome Book of Love!

An Awesome Book of Love! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Dallas Clayton wrote An Awesome Book! for his son, everything changed. A self-published sensation, Dallas has visited schools and stores across the United States, hand-selling his book one kid at a time. An Awesome Book of Love!, his heartwarming follow-up, explores the many faces of love. This book is a perfect gift for Valentine's Day—or really for any day you'd like to tell someone special how much you care.

Review:

"Clayton's companion to The Awesome Book! is an exclamatory love poem ('I love you so much/ I would scream it from mountains/ And dance like a fool in/ the coldest town fountains'). Quirky drawings in rainbow shades have a psychedelic edge (a purple bear with hearts blasting from its chest could have stumbled off of a Grateful Dead album cover), while the verse might have been sampled from indie rock: 'Sometimes it's a whisper/ when you feel you could shout/ or just being around/ when the others have gone/ or about/ letting go/ when you want to hold on.' Peculiar creatures frolic throughout — an elephant parachutes from a plane, a robot embraces a dinosaur — creating a fresh and lightly irreverent backdrop for Clayton's earnest verse. Ages 4 — 8."
