Creatures We Dream of Knowing is a compilation of seven heartwarming stories that probe the wonders of creation through the eyes of creatures who ask those they encounter to open their eyes and hearts to their wisdom.
When a young boy receives a plea in a dream from a frightened colt with purple diamond eyes, he embarks on an unforgettable adventure that leads him from the warmth of his bed to a dark horse pasture where he must learn to use his hands and his heart to rescue the abandoned foal. As the collection of short stories continues, a band of unique characters will meet a creature from the depths of the ocean previously unknown to humanity; travel into an oriental carpet with the creatures who live in it; discover a butterfly who wants to end a war; share a dragon’s story; find out what happens when someone rubs a genie’s bottle with the wrong hand; and perch in the branches of a tree unlike any other.
Creatures We Dream of Knowing encourages others to simply imagine what would happen if such beautiful creatures truly existed in our universe.
