Summaries and Reviews
Enhanced with rich illustrations, a young boy uses his imagination to dream of a magical place that is filled with wonderful trees, winding rivers, floating clouds, and twinkling stars. description: Product Description:
Trees are hanging from the sky, their roots are snakes, or sometimes rivers, their leaves are fish. Are those roots entwined in clouds or stars?
Our hero’s mother warned him not to eat before going to bed and not to sleep with his arms crossed on his chest or he will have nightmares. But he doesn’t mind because he loves these trees. Even so, it’s a good thing his bed is close to the ground because he is a little bit scared of heights and, when his dream knocks him out of bed, he doesn’t have far to fall.
Jorge Argueta’s unique use of language, images and dreams, have garnered him wide recognition and many awards.
