He opens the World of the Dream Realm by telling them the stories of Iam and the magic that helped bring everything into being, from pinecones to flowers and rainbows.
Iam is an extraordinary traveler whose wanderlust led him to meet fairies, unicorns, wizards, and many more incredible creatures in the different kingdoms of the realm. His escapades taught him so much about life and how to live it well.
Children and their parents or grandparents will find this book a perfect bedtime storybook. It provides precious moments to bond and create wonderful memories.
Enter a world of magic & adventure.

“My five-year-old recently chose this book for his nightly bedtime storytelling. He absolutely adored Iam. I love the fact that the authors built an intricate world of magic but also incorporated the everyday issues that humans face every day. My son learned valuable lessons while enjoying the journey.”
Aaron E. Holdren, Burbank, California
“There is good characterization. There is complex world-building. There are lessons to be learned. This book seems to have it all.”
Olan didn’t intend to actually steal the raft. He didn’t know how to control it. It floated where the wind and currents took it. After Iam jumped in the water, Olan didn’t have a clue what to do. He already was sorry for taking it.

I am looked straight into the very orange eyes of a very orange mermaid. Her hair, her skin, her scales—everything about her glowed orange. Iam thought her the most wondrous creature he had ever seen.

It was a small clearing. Floating in the middle of it was a sparkling ball of light.
As Candace and Iam stepped closer it began to twinkle and fade, revealing an elegant fairy. Her wings were spun gold in the sunlight. Her dress shimmered as if made of moonbeams, and her magic wand had a real Star Child perched on its tip.
“I’ve been expecting you.” She said.
