In This Ricky Adventure, Pop Pop joins Ricky on a dream trip to ancient China during the time of the Great Kublai Khan’s empire. While there, Ricky and Pop Pop help Marco Polo and his family leave the Khan’s court and return home to Venice. Along the way, Ricky explores the Khan’s imperial palace and learns about Chinese zodiacs and the medieval art of Chinese paper folding known as Zhezhi paper folding.
Ricky travels to the ancient world through his dreams with his Pop Pop by his side.
William Stevenson spent much of his career as president of National Tax Consultants, Inc where he distinguished himself as one of the few non-attorneys admitted to practice in front of the United States Tax Court. However, he also earned a Doctorate in Education from Temple University. Although this gave him a full understanding of how children learn, the Ricky’s Dream Trip Books were inspired by his personal experience as a Pop Pop. He wrote the books he would have liked to have for his grandson and the Ricky’s Dream Trip series was born.
