When baby Mila dreams she finds herself in wondrous stories. She imagines herself as a princess or Little Red Riding Hood. She dreams of fairies and frog princes. She dreams of the three bears and swans. She finds herself flying on a magic carpet and living her dreams. When she wakes the fairy tales are gone but she still lives happily ever after.
In this book baby Mila takes many imaginary journeys through the creativity of photography. The scenes are set up using fabric and other household objects to create a whimsical picture portraying a fairy tale story. The pictures and scenes are of a more amateur nature and the scenes are sometimes difficult to envision. There is no concrete storyline and the words that are used are not particularly captivating or motivational. The idea for this book is very cute and creative but has not quite reached its potential. That being said, it can be quite a fun book for children who have younger siblings that they can dress up and take silly pictures of.
