Appelemando's Dreams Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Appelemando loves to dream! The villagers think he will never amount to much, but his friends know better. They can see his dreams drift up from the top of his head and float into the sky.

Then, one rainy day, Appelemando's dreams are blown onto all the wet walls and roofs of the town, covering the houses and stores with fantastic pictures. The villagers are astonished and angry: How could the children do such a thing! Not until Appelemando and his friends lose their way in the forest do the villagers recognize the wonder and value of Appelemando's special gift.

With her vibrant folk-art illustrations, Patricia Polacco draws young readers into Appelemando's magical world, where they will discover the importance of dreaming and the power of true friendship.

Synopsis:

Appelemando loves to dream, but in the dreary, gray town where he lives, there is no room for dreamers. Fortunately, Appelemando is lucky enough to have friends who believe in his dreams, and with a little encouragement, the children are able to teach the townspeople how dreams can color their world.

-- "With its perfect melding of art and narration, it's a dream come true". — School Library Journal, starred review

"(Polacco's) on target as always". — Publishers Weekly

"The illustrations add a vibrant, colorful fairy tale atmosphere to the text. A book to reassure many a day-dreamer".-- Children's Book Review Service

Synopsis:

Because he spends his time dreaming, the villagers are convinced that Appelemando will never amount to much but in time his dreams change the village and all the people in it.
