Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When he falls asleep with a book in his arms, a young boy dreams an amazing dream — about dragons, about castles, and about an unchartered, faraway land. And you can come along.

Review:

"This unbroken dreamscape is artfully carried through a blending of ancient and modern motifs." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[T]he illustrations are stunning." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

In the silence of a dream, a young boy takes off on a dazzling night flight. Artist David Wiesner invites us along on the journey, to conquer dragons, roam castles, and soar above the fields of an uncharted land that looks strangely familiar. "A classic example of fantasy and adventure".--Booklist. A Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book. Full-color illustrations.

About the Author

David Wiesner's interest in visual storytelling dates back to high school days when he made silent movies and drew wordless comic books. Born and raised in Bridgewater, New Jersey, he graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. While a student, he created a painting nine feet long, which he now recognizes as the genesis of Free Fall, his first book of his own authorship, for which he was awarded a Caldecott Honor Medal in 1989. Tuesday was the 1992 Caldecott Medal Winner, and in 2002 David won his second Caldecott Medal for The Three Pigs. Mr. Wiesner and his wife, Kim Kahang, and their two children live in Philadelphia, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues her career as a surgeon.
