DALI AND THE PATH OF DREAMS
Once upon a time, there was a little boy whose name was Salvador, though everyone called him Salvi. What Salvi liked most of all was to run barefoot along the beach with his hoop. One afternoon, as he was playing in the waves, he noticed something gleaming under the water.
Looking closer, he saw it was a key that the sea had left there. Without thinking twice, Salvi popped it in his pocket. Then, wondering what the key might be for, Salvi hopped up on to his long-legged elephant and let his imagination lead the way...This charming new story takes Salvador Dali's most famous motifs, including melting clocks, long-legged elephants and magical chests of drawers, and weaves them into a fantastical story introducing the work of the artist to the youngest child.
It is released to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Salvador Dali in 2004. It provides a child-friendly introduction to the work of Surrealism's greatest artist. The story explores the limitless possibilities of the Surrealist vision while the vibrant illustrations reflect Dali's own style.
