When Joey went to bed that night he was determined to stay awake so he could see the Sandman. His friend, Henry, said that he had seen the Sandman and Joey didn't want to be left out. As he lay in bed, fighting to keep his eyes open, Joey imagined what meeting the Sandman would be like ....

Dean Morrissey's charming story follows Joey on his journey through the star-filled night to meet the Sandman, a voyage filled with excitement and delight. Joey sails off in his specially-adapted wagon, the Redd Rocket, on a flight of discovery followed step-by-step in Morrissey's magically vivid realistic paintings. The boy's adventure, his exhilarating fall through the sky and heart-stopping rescue, his discovery of the Sandman's amazing ship and the secrets contained aboard it, all add up to a bedtime experience that children of all ages will cherish again and again.

Dean Morrissey
Dean Morrissey has been drawing and creating characters since his childhood in Boston. Inspired by Disney matte paintings and comic book heroes early on, he grew to appreciate the works of the masters, such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Pyle and N.C. Wyeth. Morrissey worked a variety of job until deciding to paint full time in the late 1970’s. He worked as a freelance book cover illustrator for over 15 different publishers in New York and won numerous awards. Morrissey is self taught, and considers the demands of cover illustration to have been his “art school”. In 1991, Morrissey began to paint some images from a story that he was creating. His books include Ship of Dreams Harry N Abrams (1994), The Great Kettles: A Tale of Time Harry N Abrams (1997), The Song of Celestine Little, Brown and Co. (1998), The Christmas Ship HarperCollins (2000), A Christmas Carol Greenwich Workshop Press (2000), The Moon Robber HarperCollins (2001), The Winter King HarperCollins (2002), and The Monster Trap HarperCollins (2004). His awards include The Society of Illustrators Gold Medal for The Great Kettles, The Chesley Award for The Light Ship (2002), and he is a current nominee for this year’s Chesley Award for Anna of the Celts (2003). Morrissey lives with his wife Shan and his son on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
