SCOTTY'S DREAM--THE BOOK AND THE SONG 'Scotty's Dream' is a first for me. I'm principly a songwriter and I've done that successfully for many years. I've had songs recorded by many artists in Europe and the USA. So it was a pleasant surprise to find myself writing a children's Christmas story. Then of course, as a songwriter I had to put the story to music. 'Scotty's Dream', is not just a story for children. It is a story for everyone who has ever had a dream and fervently wished for that dream to come true. Parents and storytellers will enjoy reading 'Scotty's Dream' to children. It has a positive, uplifting message we all need from time to time. Also at the end of the book is a unique two page section titled, 'Dreams and Wishes 'for the child to fill in after reading the book. Scott Berry, the artist whose voice you'll hear on ' Scotty's Drean/ the Song' does a wonderful job of singing and playing on the CD. He is famously known as Mr Jukebox, in the Orlando, Florida area, where he sings and plays at the Peabody Hotel and many other places around town. David McKeown, is the illustrator of 'Scotty's Dream. This is a first for him too. The charming color illustrations picture, Scotty, just as I envisioned him when I wrote the story. The rest of the illustrations give the story a vivid portrayal of Scotty's adventures on his way to making his dream come true.
