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.
