About the Book

This story is built around a stick who dreams of exploring the world. Because it is a stick, it can’t move to fulfil his dreams. He lives in a rainforest, thinking how to make his big dream come true, and he never gives up dreaming. This stick is special as he can talk and blink his eyes. And that’s the only tool he has. He’s happy when he’s dreaming and sad thinking he can’t move. His power of dreaming is the only reason that takes him step by step to reach his long-awaited dream. So dream; they become true.

About the Author

Writing and telling stories is a passion of Naavya since she is just four years of age. The beautiful childhood she grew up surrounded by nature with tall tropical trees, river at the backyard’s edge with Komodo dragons, paddy fields, and golden coastline back in her home country is one of the reasons for most of her inspirations. Her storytelling converted to writing as she grew up, and writing and reading became her two most favourite activities to spend the time. When she’s not writing or reading, she can be found wandering around nature or thinking of a recipe to try out, mostly a sweet one!
