Have you ever had a dream that you wanted desperately to come true? Neil has. His dream is of a castle, one with tall towers, a drawbridge over a deep moat, and up a winding staircase, a room with windows and a chair just his size. Neil tries to recreate this dream castle, but the sand in his sandbox is too dry and his blocks are too small. Then Neil spots his father drawing at his drafting table and he has another idea. Soon, with his fatherĀ's help, his bedroom is papered floor to ceiling. First with pencil then with paint, NeilĀ's castle moves from dream to reality, and Neil becomes . . . an artist.
Alissa Imre GeisĀ's fresh illustrations and moving text gently share an important messageĀ—anyone can pursue a dream.
