Sam took a breath and shut his eyes tight.
He thought ten miles left, and ten miles right.
A New Way to Go to Sleep.
Inspired by the lyrical genius of John Lennon, the nonsensical writings of Lewis Carroll, and the colorful magic of Walt Disney, Dave Manousos realized at an early age he would one day fulfill his dream and publish his writings and drawings.
Thus in 2004, Manousos decided to write and draw for children. “Life is Good & Other Reasons for Rhyme,” “Sophia’s Turn: Believe in Your Dreams,” “Let’s Go On A Letter Hunt” and “Transparent Pillage” are his published works.
“The Land of Reverse,” is a story about nine-year-old Sam who can’t get to sleep. He tries everything he can think of from counting sheep to standing on his head. When pretending to sleep plunges him into a world where everything is reverse, bizarre and creatively confusing, he learns pretending is real and sleep is just a matter of letting yourself go…
