Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Where would you go if you still had the imagination you had as a child? What would you do? This is the story of Luca, a young boy who does not want to go to bed, and each time his parents tell him to go to sleep he begins a new adventure, first as a pirate, then as a Knight, then as an archeologist then a desert trek, and finally a deep sea adventurer. This book is wonderfully written and incredibly illustrated. It’s a fun story for the whole family and it will set your child’s imagination on fire and maybe bring back some of yours from your childhood.
