Dreams can be anything – silly or fantastical, scary or confusing – and in this beautifully produced book the pictures perfectly reflect the very odd nature of dreams. The text is simple and completely integrated into the collage-style illustrations – but what illustrations! The page on scary dreams has really frightening faces on a dark red and black background with a strange red, spiky tail in one corner, and this melts into the next spread which shows us a rather friendly-looking red dragon, the owner of the tail on the previous page, being confronted by a brave child with sword and shield. The whole effect is bizarre but comforting, full of detail and lots of things to talk about. Tiny figures are everywhere, animals talk, things get too big or too small, but dreams are always exciting and interesting, and the book ends with the simple question, ‘What do you think you’ll dream about tonight?’ A fantastic book in the true sense of the word!
