The Book of Dreams by Shirin Ad (Children's, Picture book, 10/10)

May 2013, Frances Lincoln Children's Books, 28 pages, Hardback, Review copy,

Themes: types of dreams, nice dreams, sky dreams, being a different size dream, terrifying dreams, animal dreams,

Content: occasional peril

Summary from Frances Lincoln
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!

Nayuleska's thoughts 
The range of dreams covered is extensive  - I particularly liked all the different animals talking about dream facts, as well as how each page has different textures in it- some look like actual pieces of cotton wool/tissue paper/metal/etc.

Suggested read
Another book exploring dreams is The Sleepwalkers by Viviane Schwarz (Children's, 7 years +, 7/10)
