About this title

Synopsis:

A master storyteller offers a collection of folktales, from Brazil, China, India, Japan, and other countries, that involve dreams and dreaming. By the award-winning author of The Man Who Tricked a Ghost.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-7?Drawing on sources acknowledged at the end of the book, Yep retells 10 stories from Japan, India, China, Greece, Brazil, and Senegal in lively prose, shaping plot and point of view to emphasize each tale's dream aspect. In one selection, Badger guardians speak to their generous benefactor in his dream. In another, a prince braves distance and danger to find the princess of his dreams. In a third, a boy's dream spirit enters the body of a cricket, while a warrior dreams a lifetime as an ant, and learns humility. In yet another, a boy gains wisdom from the tree of dreams growing deep in the rain forest, only to incur murderous jealousy from other members of his tribe. A preface reminds readers that "dreaming is a bond that unites us," while an afterword briefly touches on the literary, scientific, and Freudian views on dreams. Seltzer offers one illustration per tale in a brash, deliberately rough-hewn style emphasizing the tales' strangeness. A collection to read for pure enjoyment, or to ponder the connection between dreams and folklore.?Margaret A. Chang, North Adams State College, MA
