Co-authored and illustrated by award-winning cartoonist Lucas Turnbloom, Scholastic’s Dream Jumper series will be adapted for the silver screen in partnership with author Greg Gunberg (an actor in Heroes, Alias, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and more), J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Paramount Pictures. This collection of graphic novels follows Ben, a young man whose day really begins the moment he falls asleep. Ben discovers he can jump into other people’s dreams, and when his friends start falling victim to a nightmarish monster that prevents them from waking, he knows it’s his job to save them.

But Dream Jumper isn’t Turnbloom’s only fantasy adventure. In his first children’s book, Dragon and Captain (Flashlight Press, April 2015, Ages 5 to 7), Turnbloom illustrates a story about two boys who set out on a journey into the treacherous wild of the backyard, hoping to find a lost ship before lunchtime. Figuring themselves as a dragon and a captain, the boys’ wild imaginations turn a toy watch into a compass, a doodled-on scrap of paper into a map, a paper-towel tube into a telescope. With a Calvin and Hobbes-like style that alternates depictions of the boys’ grand imaginings with the real-life look of their play, Dragon and Captain is a perfectly fanciful primer for those anticipating Dream Jumper’s Hollywood makeover.
