Daydream Believer

In this fantastical tale for young people, and the eternally young at heart, enter the fractured world of eleven-year-old Pip. A chronic daydreamer, Pip discovers the enchanted realm of Pycopay, where he undertakes a quest for the mythical Kindness Trees. During his otherworldly odyssey, he encounters a spirited medley of characters: Phezz, the lost girl and her curls; Slapstick Charly, chaser of Locomotive Moons and lover of blueberry pie; Mesquale, the Mind-grinding monkey; Dutch, the old man with a Queen Bee stuck in his brain; and many others. Pip’s journey through Pycopay teaches him about the power of language, storytelling and imagination, and the importance of compassion and friendship.
