The Lovereading4Kids comment
There’s a lyrical feeling to this attractive and thought-provoking picture book which takes readers on a trip into the world of dreams. A simple text describes the things that can happen in dreams - and the original illustrations realises them and brings them to life. The minimalist quality of this book makes it one to savour.
The Book of Dreams by Shirin Adl
Shirin uses her signature illustrative style to explore the world of dreams through colourful collages and sponge painting. The pictures have a dream-like quality, with lots to discover and explore.
Dreams come in many different shapes and forms. Some dreams are nice and simple, some dreams are confusing - and some are scary. But even these can be exciting! The book includes bad dreams as well as pleasant dreams, funny, fantastic, wish-fulfilling, exciting but ends on a positive note, looking forward to bedtime and the next night's dreams.
's Books Online 'A fantastic book in the true sense of the word!'
'There's a lyrical feeling to this attractive and thought-provoking picture book. ... One to savour.'
'Superbly illustrated ... Children will be chomping at the bit to share their own dream experiences after reading this and they will certainly be imagining what it would be like to do all these things other people have dreamed about. Beautifully told and expertly illustrated this beautiful book will inspire even more dreams to come!'
'Eye-catching cover is a great start to this book, which is naturally perfect for bedtime. An imaginative story, with illustrations that perfectly reflect the words and which are packed with absorbing detail for children to pore over.'
'A big colourful book to share.'
'an imaginative and brightly coloured journey through a night of dreams, both good and bad. With plenty to explore and discover this is a book for any time and many places'
... This well-produced book raises plenty of points for discussion, offering young children the opportunity to share their thoughts about their own dreams and how they make them feel.
