Trees are hanging from the sky, their roots are snakes, or sometimes rivers, their leaves are fish. Are those roots entwined in clouds or stars?
Our hero’s mother warned him not to eat before going to bed and not to sleep with his arms crossed on his chest or he will have nightmares. But he doesn’t mind because he loves these trees. Even so, it’s a good thing his bed is close to the ground because he is a little bit scared of heights and, when his dream knocks him out of bed, he doesn’t have far to fall.
Jorge Argueta’s unique use of language, images and dreams, have garnered him wide recognition and many awards.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-This free-verse poem follows the path of David Wiesner's Free Fall (Lothrop, 1988), wherein a young boy's dreams feature odd formations of unusual items visible from his room. The scraggly redhead delights in the ever-morphing trees whose roots become striped or polka-dotted snakes, branches are rivers, and leaves change into fish. The imaginative scenes range from trees towing spaceships to a life-sized Lego boat. Not all of the dream elements appear in the child's basement room on the final page, where the boy has fallen out of bed to loll like a rag doll. Yockteng's soft colors and simple lines ably soothe or build tension as required. Some scenes will be too frightening for the preschool set, but older children may find this an inspiration for their own artistic creations based on dreams.
