Children fall for the paintings of Salvador Dali. The imagery appeals and they respond to this sense of imagination and whimsy they see. In Dali and the Path of Dreams, author Anna Obiols and illustrator Joan Subirana create an adventure story for young Dali inspired by the famous painter's style. Little Salvi, as he's known, rides on a long-legged elephant, encounters a chef who tosses clocks like pancakes, finds a magic key, flies on a floating boat, and does much more in this charming tribute to the seminal surrealist.

Anna Obiols graduated from the University of Barcelona with a degree in History of Art. As well as being a writer, she now works in the children's section at a public library where she is responsible for organising activities to encourage children to read. Anna loves travelling. On her journeys she always tries to find exciting new people and places that she can bring together in her stories.Subi (Joan Subirana) studied Applied Arts at university, and specialised in mural painting and graphic design. He now works as an illustrator for children's books and magazines, and has a daily comic strip in a newspaper in Catalonia. He has won many prizes in Spain for his illustrations, cartoons and paintings. Joan began drawing as a very young child, illustrating the stories he made up in his head. He believes that childhood is a precious time when everything is surprising and anything is possible, and he tries to keep that spirit alive in his paintings.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5–Little Salvi goes on a surreal adventure that begins with finding a key under the ocean. He then rides a long-legged elephant, comes across pizza-shaped clocks, sails through the air in a rowboat, and explores a strange tower. In one room, a piano plays as unusual objects and strange people emerge from the corners and eventually settle down to live in a drawer for a very long time. The book ends with an adult Salvador Dali reaching back to his childhood, and the drawer, for inspiration. Each page contains elements from Dali's life and his famous paintings. With their dreamlike quality, the pictures are a little like a visual trip down the rabbit hole; they are more entertaining and enlightening than the story, which is rather plodding. Students who are studying the surrealists might find it interesting to compare this book with Dali's art to see how Subirana wove symbols from his work into her illustrations. More of a novelty than a story, this is an additional purchase.–Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
