This book is a gift from the great artist Dallas Clayton for the german Bookcrossers.
I read about it and asked Dallas if he would send me one book as a gift:

Hi Dallas,
I read about your book at
And now I wonder if you have ever heard of Bookcrossing? I'm sure you have ;o)
If not have a look at
I'm a very active member of the german community, my screenname is ChaosHamburg. If I had a job I would buy a copy of that awesome book and make it a bookring where anybody can subscribe and we send the book around. But sadly I have no job at this moment.
So I come to my request: will you give us (the german bookcrossers) one book as a gift? That would be also a good advertising for your book. Very often members of a bookring buy the books after they read them in the bookring.
Maybe I can start a collection at BC-Germany to get at least the postage (just say a word!).
If you think my question ist just impertiment, please excuse me and drop this mail. But if you would like to make friends with the german BCers, send a copy of your book to me and I will organize that bookring:

Name Nachname
Straße xx
2xxxx Hamburg

Thank you for reading my mail and getting along with my strange english ;o)
Now I will lie down on my sofa and DREAM of mail with a book inside.
Have a nice autumn!

And amazing but true – he did that. AWESOME! Here is his answer:
Thanks so much! This sounds fun!
I'll put one in the mail for you.
Good luck!


So let's make great journal entries to tell him about the AWESOME journey of his book!

Auf deutsch:
Ich habe über An awesome Book bei gelesen. Und war sofort Feuer und Flamme für das Buch. Also habe ich Dallas Clayton per Mail gefragt, ob er mir ein Buch für Bookcrossing zur Verfügung stellt. Und ER HAT ES GEMACHT!!!
Er schrieb, das BC lustig klingt.

Ich bitte alle Ringteilnehmerinnen, aussagekräftige JEs zu machen, da ich Dallas Clayton den Link schicken werde. Logischerweise müssen die JEs aber nicht alle begeistert sein.

Bitte schickt das Buch nach maximal zwei Wochen weiter. Wenn Ihr keine Antwort von der nächsten Station bekommt, überspringt die.

Viel Spaß/enjoy!

Journal Entry 2 by Washti from Glinde, Schleswig-Holstein Germany on Monday, October 19, 2009
Read this nice little book during a meetup in Hamburg, Café Smoegen, before it starts its journey through Germany. I liked the pictures very much! So much to discover in the pictures, very funny!

Journal Entry 3 by wingulfiewing from Hamburg - Uhlenhorst, Hamburg Germany on Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Before the book starts its journey through Germany, it made a little trip yesterday in our meet-up-location Café Smögen. I was one of its reader and I liked it very much.

Journal Entry 4 by olagorie from Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Monday, October 26, 2009

Das Buch kam heute wohlbehalten in meinem Briefkasten an. Jetzt sitzt das grüne Monster auf meinem Schoß ;-)

The book arrived safely today - now the green monster is sitting on my lap ;-)

I really like the book: there are so many details to discover! I love the colours and craziness. I hope I will have many BIG and exciting dreams tonight.

Plus I LOVE the notes on the back of the book:

Update 4.11.: Das Buch war gestern Abend beim Frankfurter Sonder-Meet-Up in der Pistazie dabei und fand regen Zuspruch :-) Feuer frei für die JEs!

Es wandert am Sonntag weiter.

Journal Entry 5 by auweia from Ober-Ramstadt, Hessen Germany on Wednesday, November 04, 2009
Yesterday during our mini-meetup in Frankfurt,I had a look in this funny little book. Wonderful pictures and hopeful reading inspire me for a nice christmas present for my daughter. Hope she will make her dreams come true :-)

Journal Entry 6 by wingSagunawing from Nürnberg, Bayern Germany on Wednesday, November 04, 2009
The mini-meetup in Frankfurt took place because I was there yesterday and so I also had the chance to enjoy this book. But there are some parts that I didn´t really understand (sense). Maybe one should have more time to read it.

Das war dann ein spontanes Lese-/Angucktreffen :-)

Journal Entry 7 by wingchawosowing from Heusenstamm, Hessen Germany on Thursday, November 05, 2009
I also had have a look in this very amazing book at our mini meet-up in Frankfurt. There are many nice idees inside and many small details can be discovered. I think it will be very helpful to take more time for this little book.
Have a good journey, little book! Bring a little bit more ligthness in our fast moving world.

Journal Entry 8 by SaschaBWk from Hamburg - Barmbek, Hamburg Germany on Friday, November 06, 2009
I've seen the book at the meeting in Hamburg about two weeks ago. And as you can see from may late entry I've put the BCID in a another book and forgot about it (the other book, not this book.) The Awsome Book is really charming, funny, and cute. I especially liked the pages with the many boring things. Pictured in this way they were transformed from boring to special.

So, to clarify it again: The book is not back in Hamburg, I'm just late with this entry.

Dieses Buch möchte die weite Welt und viele andere Bücher und Bücherverrückte kennen lernen.

Es wird heute im Irish Pub an ParadizeApple übergeben, die es dann an Wasserfall weiter gibt.

Journal Entry 10 by crizzy from Biberach an der Riß, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Sunday, November 08, 2009
I read the book during our Meetup in the Irish Pub. I like it very much. Someone asked, which "story" I loved best. It was the world upside down. And the sandcastle. And the rocket-powered unicorns. And the sign "give-up". And and and... All those colourful pictures. The whole book! Thank you for letting me participate!

Journal Entry 11 by Hejum from Ummendorf (bei Biberach), Baden-Württemberg Germany on Monday, November 09, 2009

Auch für Ältere: schön gemacht + interessant - regt zum Nachdenken und Träumen an. Zuviel tolle, interessante Details um auf eine einzelne Seite eingehen zu können, aber die fliegenden Raketen-Einhörner sind mir besonders im Gedächnis geblieben.

Dankeschön! Thank you!

Journal Entry 12 by gg-Ena from Strömsund, Jämtland Sweden on Monday, November 09, 2009
I also had a look in this book during the mini MeetUp in Frankfurt. It is so lovely! I searched for penguins (because I like them) and I found two pictures of them :) And it was so funny to read the book with all of this amazing little features!

Journal Entry 13 by Geroedelheimer from Ravensburg, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Thursday, November 12, 2009
The book was passed on during our Bookcrossers' get together and I found it full of life, of colours and of course: full of dreams!

I loved it!

Journal Entry 14 by micat from Ravensburg, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Wednesday, November 18, 2009
I viewed the book during our "Meet Us in the Pub" at Nov,8th in Ravensburg, and, coming back from a holiday in Spain, I feel obliged to review it now. Very funny, very inspiring, and my favourite is (hardly surprising) "whose dreams can change the way things are".

Journal Entry 15 by ParadizeApple on Monday, November 30, 2009
When I got the book, I was and still am totally amazed. Soon afterwards I got quite sick for a fortnight but eventually went to the post office today and sent the book to Wasserfall. Thank's a lot and endless dream come trues for everybody :-)

Journal Entry 16 by Wasserfall from Chaoyang 朝阳, Beijing China on Thursday, December 03, 2009
The book arrived yesterday. It's so wonderful. I love the frog with his pink coat - tonight I will ask him to marry me and then I will put the earth into an egg-holder and my head into his soft hands. *pflup*

Journal Entry 17 by tigertatze from Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin Germany on Saturday, December 19, 2009
This is definitly an awesome book!

I read it to my 7-year-old son and he loved the candy cane machine and studied all its details. Now he dreams to have one of these machines all for himself! My six-year-old daughter also loved the book and was especially amazed about the musical baboons. Both of them were astonished that there are people who have given up dreaming and those who never tried. That certainly was out of their imagination!

I will now read it once again for myself. Especially the page with the dreams about everything that no one thought to wonder, because my children examined those pictures so closely I never had chance to have a close look myself. For this I will lay on my new red sofa, which - I have to admit - I dreamt to have for a long time, because it is just the perfect place to read and dream!

Thanks again for sharing your dreams!


I wil keep the book until January 10th hoping that I will be able to visit the next Berlin meet-up.

Journal Entry 18 by bija007 from Ginsheim-Gustavsburg, Hessen Germany on Saturday, January 23, 2010

Today I got the news, that a parcel is waiting in the "Packstation" and I went and freed it.
I had a look around the book and think it will make me a lot of joy to read it and think about it.
Thank you.

Journal Entry 21 by wingholle77wing from Meschede, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Wednesday, March 17, 2010
Wow, fantastic and full of phantasy, I really like it.
And now it can make a journey to Berlin, to Berlin-Bookworm.

Journal Entry 22 by BerlinBookworm from Washington, District of Columbia USA on Saturday, March 20, 2010
Thank you so much that I can be part of this phenomenal ring! When I opened the letter today I immediately skimmed through the book and already liked it. I will read it more intensively tomorrow and share it with my son.

I read the book right away and thought it was wonderful. I wish someone would print my crazy ideas! I really liked the fact that the book was about dreaming since I am a very passionate dreamer. Very nice and creative drawings! Thank you very much, Douglas, for sharing your ideas (and especially your book) with us.

Travelling to Austria

Journal Entry 25 by mysticcat from Wien Bezirk 21 - Floridsdorf, Wien Austria on Thursday, April 22, 2010
This book finally arrived in Austria - thank you very much.

I liked it a lot, unfortunately it got a little depressing - but nevertheless I liked the kind of painting.

So I will be dreaming about this book - and keep it a little to show it to other Austrian BCers on a meetup. Thank you very much for this ring!

Journal Entry 26 by silvercoon from Wien Bezirk 14 - Penzing, Wien Austria on Sunday, May 09, 2010

Journal Entry 29 by wingeligiwing from Leonding, Oberösterreich Austria on Sunday, May 23, 2010
weils beim Brunch in der Scherbe auf dem Tisch lag, hab ich's auch schnell durchgeschaut :-)
dann hat's Feloris wieder eingepackt

Journal Entry 30 by feloris at Graz, Steiermark Austria on Wednesday, June 02, 2010
I received the book around two weeks ago but forgot to make an entry, and then the new site appeared.

I really like it, the message is beautiful, the poetry is funny, and the pictures are simply amazing.
(The student that I am tutoring in Englisch called it "cute" - and complained that it was too easy for him. ;))

Since the old forum thread is gone, could any one who knows tell me who's next? Or should I find new people to continue the ray?

Edit: I just noticed the list in the first entry. :P I didn't see my name in there at first so I thought it was that case...I'll contact the next person in line. :)

Journal Entry 31 by anathema-device at Graz, Steiermark Austria on Saturday, June 12, 2010
While Feloris is waiting to receive the next participant's address, she let me have a look at this little book, and it's really charming in a weird sort of way. Kind of the ideal bedtime story for people like me (no matter what age they are).
Thanks for letting me read this. I hope it will have lots of wonderful adventures and get to visit lots of nice people and make them dream... :)

Journal Entry 32 by winglinguistkriswing at Graz, Steiermark Austria on Friday, July 16, 2010
I've had the pleasure of meeting this book on two separate occasions, and because there were a few weeks in between to forget half the marvels that its pages hold, it was absolutely twice the pleasure. In the vein of "Where is ....(e.g. Waldo)"-books, the Awesome book hides lots of secret treasures just waiting to be discovered. Which is your favourite unicorn, which is your favourite machine, which is...? The explicit yet unobtrusive message doesn't hurt either.

Journal Entry 33 by Sunjo at Leipzig, Sachsen Germany on Saturday, July 24, 2010
The book just arrived today and I've already read it. And I'm sure I will read it (and look at the pictures very closely) a few times more :-)

In the meantime I will try to share it with other bookcrossers in Leipzig

I love those cute childen's books that make the world more colorful
Thank you very much for sharing this one

Journal Entry 34 by susiuni at Leipzig, Sachsen Germany on Saturday, August 07, 2010
Heute beim Leipziger Meetup zwischen heißer Schokolade und Fassbrause gelesen.
Schöne bunte Bildchen, süßer Text und ein paar tolle Ideen: Wann kommt das mit Jelly Beans betriebene Auto auf dem Markt? Würde schon mal ein Vorbesestellung treffen.
Ein Buch, das ich noch einige weitere Male Lesen und Durchblättern würde.

Got the opportunity to read this little one at the Café Waldi (BC-Meetup) today.
Lovely illustrations, funny remarks and thoughtful ideas. I esp. liked the idea of a car needing jelly beans instead of fuel - where can I get one of these?
It´s one of those books I would read or just switch through the pages again and again.

This is an awesome book. With he help of simple sentences and great pictures you start thinking about your life and your dreams. I can recomment it to everyone.

Das ist ein phantastisches Buch. Mithilfe einfacher Sätze und großartigen Bildern beginnt man, über sein Leben und seine Träume nachzudenken. Ich kann es nur jedem empfehlen.

Das Buch reist weiter, sobald ich die nächste Adresse habe.

Journal Entry 39 by wingAnonymousFinderwing at Borkum, Niedersachsen Germany on Tuesday, December 14, 2010
Das awesome book ist unbeschadet bei mir angekommen. Vielen Dank fürs Schicken.
Ein sehr ansprechendes Kinderbuch, wären meine Kids noch klein, es wäre der abendliche Vorlese- und Anschaufavorit geworden. So muss ich es selber lesen und es leider bald wieder abgeben. Morgen aber wird es noch anderen Lesern vorgestellt. Ich bin sicher es wird dort genauso viel Anklang finden wie bei mir und Euch.
Vielen Dank dass ich mitlesen durfte, vielen Dank für die Organisation, vielen Dank Dallas dafür, dass es geschrieben und gezeichnet wurde!

EDIT 01/21:

An awesome book is now on its way to PeregrinTuk - enjoy!

Journal Entry 42 by PeregrinTuk at Detmold, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Awesome Book arrived few days ago.

I think it *is* awesome. I love the "all rights reserved" notes on the back of the book.
"I have a dragon. He will cry". I KNOW it's just a funny little note and many people write it like that, but still, it makes me smile, because it would work for me - I believe in dragons that cry.
And I'm in love with the multi-colour cangaroo monster.

Awesome Book made some new friends in our kitchen, btw :) Everybody said it was a great book. One friend wanted to write down the text, because it's important to remember what dreams are worth. I think she's right :)

There should be more awesome books. More colourful crazy dreams. A very awesome world indeed.

Sorry for keeping this book a bit longer, was quite busy :( Try to send it on asap now!

So, das Buch darf nun weiterreisen, ich hatte die Adresse von Nenya75 schon ein paar Tage, aber ich kam dann doch nicht so schnell dazu, es auf den Weg zu bringen.

Ich gebe von ganzen Herzen 10 Sterne, weil ich es so wichtig finde, dass Kinderbücher in diesen Stil ermutigen und die Fantasie anregen. Ich kann mich immer so aufregen über die Bücher wie "C. räumt ihr Zimmer auf", "C. bekommt ein Schwesterchen" usw....ganz zu schweigen von "pädogisch wertvollen" ?? Büchern, in denen vermittelt wird, wie wichtig es ist, sich die Haare zu kämmen und nicht in der Nase zu bohren (kein Witz, solche Bücher gibt es es wirklich- und zwar zuhauf).
Von daher wünsche ich mir sehr eine deutsche Ausgabe dieses Buchs, damit ich es an alle Nichten, Neffen, Patenkinder usw. verschenken kann. Na gut, die älteren könnten ja auch eine englische Ausgabe von mir bekommen. Vielleicht wäre es auf deutsch auch gar nicht mehr so toll?

Darum möchte ich mich ganz doll bei ChaosHamburg für diesen Ring bedanken.

I really enjoyed this book. It´s fascinating, not only for children, but for elder persons like me as well :-)
I hope there´s a possibility to get it here in Germany, because it might be a perfect present for my teenage neices.
Thank you, Dallas!

The book will travel on as soon as I have the next address!

Es ist zurück in Hamburg – wenigstens für eine kleine Weile!

Nachtrag, 15. 5. 2011: In einem Wort: Phantastisch! Es trifft zwar nicht ganz meinen Geschmack bei Illustrationen, aber die Idee rettet Tag (& Traum).

Read once by myself, and once to my nieces (2 and 4) each. The small one was too overwhelmed with the tiny drawings and lost interest soon, and the older one commented that she found the part about the furniture, hats, cutlery and so on stupid - she knew nobody who was dreaming of such dull things! ;o) And anyway, she was dreaming even more awesome things than in the book, so there! (Well, she is at _that_ age now ;o) ).
It's certainly a colourful and not-too-average book.

Journal Entry 59 by Colombina at Wuppertal, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Tuesday, July 12, 2011
This awesome book arrived today in Wuppertal, yippee :-)!
Thank you very much!

14th July: I love it! It is so important to dream and to use our power of imagination, it helps us through dark times, gives us joy and happiness, prevents us from losing courage when other people (or we) underestimate us, frees our mind and sometimes even provides uncommon solutions to existing problems we would never have solved when approaching the problems with a more rational view - therefore this little book carries a highly important message for young and older children. And the illustrations are just wonderful - the abundant colours work harmoniously together and create a joyful atmosphere. Exploring the drawings that resemble landscapes full of hidden treasures is fun, my favourites however are the magic watermelon boats (very cool!) and the cute raccoons.

(Funnily enough, I had a dream that "roared" just a few days before this little book arrived: I dreamed I gave shelter to a grizzly bear (just like the red bear in the awesome book but wilder) and shared my apartment with him. So I always had to carry at least one honey pot with me to distract him when he thought about eating me, but I didn't want to throw him out because I was afraid that crazy hunters (or politicians) might kill him like they killed Bruno the bear in 2006... And, yes, my grizzly bear did ROOOOAAAAAARRR :-))

Ich liebe dieses Buch! Es ist so wichtig zu träumen und seine Vorstellungskraft zu nutzen, dies hilft uns in dunklen Zeiten, bringt uns Freude und Glück, gibt uns Mut, wenn andere (oder wir selber) uns unterschätzen, macht unseren Geist frei und liefert manchmal sogar ungewöhnliche Lösungen zu tatsächlich bestehenden Problemen, die wir nie gelöst hätten, wenn wir nur mit unserer Vernunft an die Probleme herangegangen wären. So enthält dieses kleine Buch eine wichtige Botschaft für die Kinder - auch für die schon etwas älteren :-). Und die Illustrationen sind einfach wunderbar - die Fülle harmonisch vereinter Farben schafft eine von Freude geprägte Atmosphäre. Es macht Spaß, die Zeichnungen wie Landschaften zu erkunden und ihre verborgenen Schätze aufzuspüren. Besonders gefielen mir jedoch die magischen Wassermelonenboote und die süßen Waschbären.

(Komischerweise hatte ich auch gerade, nur wenige Tage, bevor dieses Buch zu mir kam, einen "brüllenden" Traum: Ich träumte, ich hätte einen Grizzlybären bei mir aufgenommen (der etwas dem roten Bären im "Awesome Book" ähnelte, nur wilder) und würde nun meine Wohnung mit ihm teilen. Daher musste ich immer mindestens einen Honigtopf mit mir herumtragen, um ihn ablenken zu können, wenn er mal darüber nachdachte, ob er mich nicht fressen könnte. Hinauswerfen wollte ich ihn jedoch auch nicht, da ich Angst hatte, dass ihn irgendwelche verrückten Jäger (oder Politiker) ermorden könnten, wie 2006 den armen Bruno... Und natürlich machte mein Grizzlybär ganz wunderbar "ROOOOOOAAAARR!")

15 July: Now on its way to the next participant.

Samstag hier angekommen, danke!
Arrived here last Saturday, thanks!

Edit 27.07.2011:
Nett! Wir hatten schon mal eine Kuh mit goldenen Schuhen am Abendbrottisch, die gelbe Milch gab, weil sie so viel Löwenzahn gefressen hatte... und nun kennen wir auch die raketenangetriebenen Einhörner.. ;o)
Ich muß jetzt erstmal eine Tüte Jellybeans besorgen...

Nice! We already had a cow with golden shoes that gave yellow milk because of eating so much dandelion sitting at our dinner table... and now we also got to know the rocket-powered unicorns.. ;o)
I will have to get a bag of jellybeans now...

I read the book to my sons (3 and 5 years old) and they especially liked the "Candy Cane Factory". They can't get enough.
Thank you for sharing.

I will send the book to See-Stern.

Das Buch hat sich lange genug hier ausgeruht, ich habe eine deutsche Ausgabe des Superbuchs im Antiquariat gefunden und würde es bei Bedarf mitreisen lassen.
