This delightful illustrated book shows how every child has a vivid imagination and revels in one child's midnight adventures. A six-year-old boy finds adventure and escape through his nightly dreams; leaving his home to soar upon a moonbeam while his body remains asleep upon his homebound bed. Our 'nightflyer' sees amazing sights like the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids, Mt. Fuji, and the Taj Mahal. He must hurry because his time of freedom is limited and soon will awaken. Spying a lovely desert isle, a peg-legged pirate challenges him to a fight and he manages to outwit the pirate and free the enslaved natives. The adventurer swims among the fish and coral, unaware the owl's eyes are beginning to close and the rooster is nearly about to crow. Dawn approaches and our hero must return to his own bed and reality. His mother hears about all his marvelous escapades and encourages him to have more wonderful adventures. He can hardly wait for the next night's flight and the freedom his dreams allow. Beautifully illustrated and written in gentle rhyme, this lovely storybook is a must read for any parent, child, or classroom in acquaintance with a genuine 'nightflyer'!
