An Imaginative Fantasy

PURPLE DRAGONFLY WINNER

Danny is a video-game junky who daydreams in school and has a life-long rivalry with his neighbor Johnny. Yet he soon finds himself ensnared in a bizarre dream controlled by Nostrildamus, an odd-looking creature with a humongous nose and no eyes yet can oddly see into the future.

Taken on a time-traveling hunt to solve an art-related mystery, Danny meets strange looking artists, like Hippopotamus Bosch and Michelanjello, while Nostrildamus "the DreamWeaver" imparts subtle pearls of wisdom. When Danny awakes, he is struck by an epiphany that will change his life.

Packed with dry humor, a mystery, and zany-looking artists, Danny and the DreamWeaver is an imaginative adventure of criminal intrigue and art history that demonstrates the importance of looking at life differently.

Time Travel - Art History & More

Danny and the DreamWeaver is a creative tale by multi-award-winning author Rich DiSilvio written and illustrated under the penname Mark Poe. It involves time travel, art history and fantasy, while demonstrating how visionaries, like Steve Jobs, Salvador Dali and Albert Einstein, placed more emphasis on imagination than knowledge, whereby prompting young readers to think differently. Moreover, one sees how Danny evolves from a teen concerned only with playing violent video games and being a callous rival to his neighbor, Johnny Dolan, to one who begins to expand his horizons and learns the meaning and benefits of compassion.

A Word From The Author

Awesome! - That's the word. :)

But seriously, I feel young and old alike will truly enjoy this imaginative tale. And yes, that's me in the upper right corner. Handsome dude, huh? Some people say I look a little like Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe, depending upon which side of my face you look at, but I guess that’s just an odd co-dissidence.

Anyhow, "Danny and the DreamWeaver" is my first published book for young adults, middle graders, or non-graders. I just don't like de-graders. You know, the types of bullys that put you down.

I would love to publish more books for young readers but I need your help. Therefore, please write a review on your favorite book store's website about Danny boy and the bizarre characters (and creatures) in "Danny and the DreamWeaver," and, for Pete's sake, or Nicole's sake or anyone's sake, tell your friends and family members to get it!

Thanks for stopping by and please spread the word!
