Artist notes: "Kids are dreamers and have great imagination! Sitting at the table and enjoying their breakfast, their mind wanders off and they start to see fantastic things. A small boy looks at his cereal bowl and a roaring dragon emerges from the milk in his mind! Somewhere else a girl lazely stares at her pancakes while honey is poured on top of it. In her mind the slowly pouring honey starts to form snails crawling around her pancakes!"
