If you’ve never heard the name Dallas Clayton before, I wouldn’t be surprised. Perhaps a tiny bit disappointed and sad for you, but not at all surprised.
You see, this lovely and crazy man is a children’s author all the way from the United States of America and, well let’s just be honest, really doesn’t even feature on our South African scene at all. But, let me tell you something… HE SHOULD!
He’s written two Awesome Books – no really, that’s what they’re called – An Awesome Book and An Awesome Book of Thanks and spreads encouragement and childlike joy wherever he goes. The seemingly silly little poems and cuddly, colourful illustrations he posts on his Tumblr pretty much make my day, almost every day and this is why:
So, if you find yourself in desperate need of a burst of energy, a little giggle or just a refreshing thought, it’s time you followed that link to the Dallas Clayton Tumblr, feed it into your favourites, your google reader or your Blog Lovin’ list and… wa-lah! Magic!
It works every time!
