Emily Winfield Martin is a collector and lover of fairy tales, and the original Grimm’s tale of Snow White and Rose Red enchanted and haunted her all her life. She is a painter of real and imaginary things, and the author and illustrator of such books as Dream Animals and The Wonderful Things You Will Be. Emily lives among the giant trees of Portland, Oregon, and if you need her, you might look in the heart of the woods.


“A rare, enchanting mixture of graceful rhyming verse and adorable, Hummel-sweet illustrations… Martin’s paintings, in rich, creamy opaque colors, have a retro look that recalls early Golden Books, but with more brush-stroke texture. They’re so nursery-worthy you may be tempted to snip a few out and frame them.” —The New York Times

“Enchanting…Little ones won’t mind curling up, thanks to the lovely whimsical illustrations.” —Parents Magazine

“Tender and dark, this brings to mind the dark and wooded world of classic fairy tales — but with a refreshingly quirky twist.” –The Atlantic Wire

“It’s a perfect bedtime book as it creates a feeling of security and comfort paired with the endless possibilities for exploration and adventure that dreams bring. The illustrations are rich and sumptuous, yet delicate and ethereal. It’s a lovely book, one that you’ll want to hold onto for years to come.” –Apartment Therapy

“This new bedtime book will lull your little one to sleep with its whimsical rhymes and low-lit illustrations. The book has a slightly vintage-feel, making it an instant classic and your child will be looking forward to his or her own sweet dreams after reading about the ones in the book.” –Metro US

“These stunning, full-color illustrations rely on polished brush strokes, midnight blue backgrounds and ethereal light to produce an almost surreal atmosphere in which children quietly ride their dream animals to fantastical venues, silently suggesting the infinite possibility of dreams. A visually elegant and textually cadenced bedtime treat.” –Kirkus Reviews
