Dev Dreamer Dev Braves a Volcano
Daydreamer Dev Reaches the South Pole
Daydreamer Dev Visits the Moon

Forever daydreaming-that’s Dev. Sitting in class or watching the clouds from the roof of Kwality Carpets, he floats off to places all over the world and has wonderful, bizarre adventures.
Mild-mannered schoolboy Dev is no stranger to survival in extreme environments. Classroom trances and home-made flights of fancy take him all over the place-what other kid could have visited Amazon rainforests, summited Mount Everest and crossed the Sahara? Along with the challenges of all this, he also needs to avoid the wrath of teachers and make Amma and Baba proud . . . Not so easy when your brain lives elsewhere!
In this volume, three wacky yet adrenaline-filled stories transport the reader into situations they can only dream of.
Set out with Dev on a solo expedition to reach the South Pole and report back to his teacher on global warming.
Find out which Dev finds more terrifying-going down a volcano or the baffling truth that a girl from his street has arrived there with him!
Join Dev and his trivia-mad friend OP as they become the first space stowaways on a moon landing mission.
For Dev, it has always been Access All Areas and no holds barred!
