Thomas Aquinas Maguire presents readers with a challenging three-part dream-story to interpret. The three separate dream-tales offer the more advanced reader the opportunity to place words to the visually stimulating and wordless stories to create an individual account of the dream episodes. The dark and muted images of the dream-tales encourage readers to further enlighten the stories with their words. Three Little Dreams invites readers to actively use their imagination to transport themselves into a world where they can curiously accompany the sheep, dragon, and winged-creature on adventures to faraway places.
Dream 1: Of Night and of Flight follows the action of the winged-creature from its peaceful slumber to its transformative journey into the mysterious night sky. The paper-plane letter that the winged-creature uses to transport itself through the dimly-lit sky is representative of the probing flight readers will take in searching for the words to place alongside this visually mapped story. Maguire empowers readers to engage in a creative storytelling experience.
