“The fantasy aspect which has been sculpted into this incredible storyline is amazing, and it is hard not to empathize with Dilby R. Dixon, whilst admiring the literary talents and imagination of Tony J. Perri.”



Dilby R. Dixon was no ordinary 10-year-old boy. He was an outcast, the odd kid in school. Growing up as an only child, he had gotten accustomed to a life of solitude. In fact, he had no friends at all, which made him question whether or not he fit in with others in school or in this world.

To occupy his time, Dilby turned to his wild imagination as he would dream of the most unbelievable places and have the most amazing adventures. From these dreams, he created a secret journal of weird words that he called, The DIlbonary, which he took everywhere he went, guarding it with his life.

No one knew the Dilbonary existed, that was until the 6th grade when Riley Rogers, the school bully, got a hold of it, setting off a chain of events that would alter Dilby’s life forever. Then, just after his 11th Birthday, something extraordinary happened, leading him to embark on the biggest journey of his life and finding the truth behind who he really is.



Dilby already knows he’s someone special having stood up to Riley Rogers, the school bully. He has also created The Dilbonary, a secret journal of weird words, traveled to many amazing worlds bringing back souvenirs, and he’s finally become a cool kid. Filled with heroism, adventure, and magical worlds,  The Time Dreamer is more than that   it’s what Dilby was born to be.

Dixon’s series presents Dilby with all new challenges to face. Now Dilby will be brought to the ultimate world, to a city called Riseanfall, where all time dreamers go.

He will encounter a new cast of characters and a dog named Hopper who will help guide him on his journey of being a time dreamer. With new friends both at home and in Riseanfall, it’s hard for Dilby to know who he can trust.
