Hi, I’m Daisy Dreamer. People call me the girl with her head in the clouds because I daydream some of the time…or maybe most the time. But isn’t that what makes life so…well, dreamy? Together with my best friends, Lily and Jasmine, we love to write stories, draw, and invent games. Then one day, I drew a doodle in my special journal and you know what? That picture moved! All. On. Its. Own. And that is how I met Posey, my totally true imaginary friend. Now he’s got a story to tell. And guess who’s going to tell it. Yep, that’s right. Me, Daisy Dreamer, the girl with her head in the clouds.
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Daisy Dreamer chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.

Daisy Dreamer and the Totally True Imaginary Friend
“Mom who’s about to come get you out of bed if you don’t wake up, Daisy Dreamer!”
“Five more minutes to finish my dream!” I say, like I do every morning.
Then I close my eyes and try to remember my dream, but POOF! Just like that, it’s gone. I ask my pillow if it remembers. But it doesn’t.
Aw, man! It was a good one too. . . . At least, I think it was. I sigh and flop over onto my stomach. Then I feel something tickle my toes.
“Daddy, STOP!” I shout as I squirm this way and that. “I asked for five more minutes! That was only two!” And I know I’m right.
Daddy laughs and says, “Wake up, Daisy Dreamer! You have to get out of bed, or you’ll dream the day away!”
So I tug my blanket right off the bed and hop onto the floor. Then I zoom out the door, dragging my blanket behind me.
“If I can’t stay in bed, then I’ll bring my bed with me!” I hide under my blanket and walk slowly down the hall. My blanket is actually a magical robe that makes me invisible. Now I can sleep and no one will see me.
Uh-oh! Sir Pounce has found me! Sir Pounce is a cat detective and secret spy for the United Pet Spy Agency. He has X-ray vision and can see through my invisible robe. He pounces, and OWIE! His claws are sharp!
