About Dallas Clayton

See more books from this Author
My name is Dallas Clayton. I write kids' books. The first one is called An Awesome Book! It's about dreaming big. When I was a kid I dreamed about traveling around the world meeting new people every day, having amazing experiences, and sharing the stories from those experiences with other new people. That's pretty much what I do now. When I am not doing that I am probably writing, drawing, having my mind blown by my seven-year-old child, or jumping into a large body of water. If you have a large body of water you want me to jump into, a school I should visit, or something else awesome I should know of, or if you just want to talk, you should check out my website www.dallasclayton.com and email me. I love strangers.

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 bein...
