Product description


Dudley is feeling overworked. He doesn't ever seem to get caught up at the office, because he spends every minute engrossed in one fantastic daydream after another. Suddenly, Dudley is fired. He is ecstatic, for now he can daydream all day long with no pesky paperwork intrusions. But unemployment brings a fresh set of problems, and things get tense until the he finds his 'dream job', a position at the Dream Factory that requires all-day dreaming. Lively, intricate illustrations juxtapose Dudley's dreary office job with his exciting dream world, and the happy resolution of his career crisis gives hope to dreamers everywhere.

Format: Hardcover
'Dudley the daydreamer' is bold and bright with a retro feel, and infused with real feel-good factor. It's a cracking colourful adventure through Dudley's daydreams that appeals to both children and their grown-ups. Dudley works in a colourless office under towering piles of paperwork but he doesn't get much done because his mind is elsewhere frolicking in fun and fantasy. There's page after page of strong colourful pictures depciting (between the telephone ringing and the office clock striking et.) Dudley the jungle explorer, Dudley the mountain-climber, Dudley the goal-scoring World Champion, Dudley on the moon.... Things don't run smoothly for Dudley though as his lack of productivity has been noticed and he loses his job. Can Dudley daydream his way out of trouble? In his inimitable way, of course he can! A smashing book to share over and over again.

What creative person doesn't wish for a job "daydreaming"? A fun tale for children and an imaginative story that will resonate with creative professionals--as well as those who are stuck at a boring day job, wishing they were doing something else!
