    A noted branding and creativity strategist, Robin Landa has written more than a dozen books about graphic design and advertising. Her latest work, the children’s picture book The Dream Box, ventures into new territory. The Kindle e-book focuses on Alex, a young bird with some crazy dreams. Ninja frogs. Triple-eyed toads. Giant pancakes. He’s practically scared out of his feathers. Alex decides he has only one way to fight back: He’s never going to sleep again. It’s a tough task for the bleary-eyed bird. He receives some trite advice from well-meaning family members. But Alex knows that it doesn’t help to think “nice things” and “happy thoughts.” He needs a real solution. That’s when he finds a curious little box on his bed. A note with the box helps Alex kick his uninvited guests out of his dreams. READ MORE>>
