Norton and Marvin and Dad and Me
About the Book
When it’s time for bed, the little boy can’t sleep, tossing and turning and imagining monsters in his room. His understanding and gentle father comes to the rescue and tells him a story. It’s about castles and kings and knights in their glory, of magic and maidens and dragons so mean, that even the fire they breathe is bright green.
A fantasy tale within a story, Norton and Marvin and Dad and Me, is a heartwarming picture book for children that demonstrates how one single father helps his young son face his fears at night. Through rhyme and illustrations, it delivers an important message about the power of friendship and belonging.
