Meet the Imaginative Joe Dreamer (Joe Dreamer series Caribbean Adventure Book 1) by Karlene Stewart is a delightful storybook revolving around Joe Dreamer who lives with his parents in the Cayman Islands. He likes to think that his drawings are real and he draws almost everything he sees around him. Something magical happens one day when Joe Dreamer draws; it becomes real for him though no one else can see it. The same thing happens when he goes to the beach with his parents one day. He draws a whale and an imaginary whale jumps up into the air and back down into the sea. It starts raining after a while and a big wave washes away Joe’s notebook, pencil, and crayons. Joe cannot rescue his things as his parents take him home. The ride back home is slow, but his parents stop at a store and buy him a new notebook, pencil, and crayons.
This story is a fun read and it highlights the importance of channeling time and energy into creative activities. The story also looks at life through the eyes of a young boy, the little problems he faces, and how he finds a solution for them. The illustrations are adorable, bright, and colorful, and they bring the characters and the story alive for young readers. It is good to see how Joe’s parents encourage his creativity and imagination, which is important for a child’s development and growth. Readers will love Joe's positive spirit and his enthusiasm for life and finding joy in the simple things of life.
