A book of a Malaysian boy's dreams, full of the atmosphere one feels sure exists in life away from urban Britain. Kassim's relationships with his father and grandfather grow and establish the link little children can have with their elders. The stories interweave spirits, dreams and realities. I would hesitate to think that all Malay children live such idyllic lives and its classroom use would need to establish that some of the truth lies elsewhere. A delightful dance through a boy's early life though.
