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.

Synopsis

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.
