Childrens book Review: Make Magic! Do Good! by Dallas Clayton

From self-publishing wunderkind Dallas Clayton comes a book of illustrated poems full of wisdom,
wonder, and whimsy.

A boy with a beard tries to stay six forever. A frightful monster lives a million miles away, but is equally scared of you. A magic rope hangs from the sky, next to a sign saying "Give me a try." In this brightly illustrated selection of playful, often provocative poems, ideas run the gamut from stopping your lightning-fast running to help others keep up, imagining a store that sells colors never before made, or admitting you’ll never know all the answers (and sleeping better at night). Following the runaway success of his self-published debut, Dallas Clayton’s quirky, captivating collection makes it clear that this rising talent, whose work has evoked comparisons to Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak, and Shel Silverstein, exudes a spirit and style all his own.
Thi book reaally amazed me. There was some really good lessons to learn from. It is a book of poetry and my 6 yar old LOVED it! It is well written and well executed. The Drawings inside the book are simple andt very well done. This book helps kids with their imagination. They are playful poems. This book would be a great addition to any book collection!
