"Good Dream, Bad Dream turns a traditional meet-your-fears-head-on storyline into a global bilingual adventure." - Mixed Diversity Reads
San Francisco, California- January 1, 2014
- Immedium announces the publication of
Good Dream, Bad Dream: The World's Heroes Save the Night!, written by Juan Calle and Serena Valentino. Propelled by a successful 2014 Kickstarter campaign (www.kickstarter.com), this boldly drawn children's book showcases legendary superheroes from around the globe whom children can call upon to help them sleep tight.
From time immemorial, children like Julio have had bad dreams! But at Julio's bedside, his papa comforts him: anyone can summon mythic avengers to conquer their fears. Every culture has its own historic champions who can vanquish scary creatures or villains. So Julio learns that his imagination is powerful indeed and can turn his bad dreams into good ones.
Facing the ancient Norse thunder god Thor, British King Arthur and Greek archer Artemis, to the Aztec diety Quetzalcoatl, Asian Monkey King, and futuristic Giant Robots, those monsters under the bed and in the closet don't stand a chance! This story illustrates the world's iconic defenders in a vibrant comic book style, and has universal appeal with its bilingual Spanish translation.
"The clever approach to an age-old bedtime issue will help strengthen vulnerable little minds with some resilient thinking."
- Kirkus Reviews
"Our seven year old loved it too because he really is into comics, can read in English and Spanish, and is going through the exact same situation as the main character, Julio."
- Mommy Maestra
Combing the contemporary appeal of comics with a classic bedtime story, this inspiring tale highlights how we share a common human condition: rooted in family, we have unlimited potential when we let our imaginations fly.
