About this title


As one young child sleeps, he dreams of a fantastical world of mermaids, dancing lobsters, and five-fingered fish in this colorful bedtime poem.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2. A boy sleeps and dreams of playing under the ocean with his many friends: a pink octopus, a whale, a mermaid, and a giant purple sea horse. The book starts as the child is swept off his bed into the flowing ocean current. Vibrant watercolors swirl in evocative, moody hues of purple and green while the boy, in his orange striped pajamas, looks like a John Burningham character ready to float into a highly charged adventure. And then, the tone changes. The colors no longer flow, and the backgrounds become denser and too cluttered, losing readers' ability to connect with the fantasy. It's not until the transition back to morning that the text and art work together once again to create a sense of poetry. While this book shows great promise, the balance between the art and text is inconsistent and the quality of both is uneven. Instead of feeling uplifted, readers may be left feeling overpowered.?Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
