'A wonderful read, especially for young readers afraid of nightmares. The soft pencil and watercolor illustrations create a soothing atmosphere that flow nicely with the theme of the story. The story is creative and encourages young readers to use their own imaginations. Overall, the words and the illustrations work together beautifully to create a story that will delight any young child.'
