Description: Never let go of your dreams and always believe in yourself is the main theme of this children's book by Hal and Julie Lansky. A simple invitation to come into a store changed everything. 'Come on in, young man!' said Bernard Lansky as he was standing outside his clothing store on Beale Street in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. This book is a play on one of Elvis's movies, 'Follow that Dream'. It tells the story of a young man who worked hard, had confidence in himself, and dreamed he could be anything that he wanted to be. The idea for the children's book has been Hal and Julie's idea for awhile to showcase the relationship that their father and grandfather had with a young man who would become the most famous entertainer of all time ... the King of Rock and Roll - Mr. Elvis Presley. This book was written in hopes that younger generations will continue to keep the legacy of Elvis Presley along with Mr. Lansky's style influence alive. This book has been illustrated by Keelan Parham to have a retro 1950s feel. Children as well as adults will like the message that Hal and Julie have put on the story of Lansky Bros., the Clothier to the King.
