Bad Dreams Get Better

25 Jul

Today is my last day of summer school. It has not been bad and I have learned a lot. Most importantly, I will never become an administrator and the people in the office deal with crazier stuff than I ever imagined. But that’s not the bad dream of the title.

Two nights ago I dreamt I was the MC for Queen. That was an awesome dream. You should have seen my rock & roll kicks around the microphone!

No, the bad dreams of today’s post are the real ones kids experience. But, fear not! Help is at hand.

The Sleepwalkers  by Viviane Schwarz, introduces us to a band of brave souls who face their own fears and rescue kids from the grips of nightmares. All a kid has to do is write a letter & slip it under their pillow. From the safe house, the team will monitor the dream and take action to help put the kid in control. It is a cool concept.

I must admit that I am not a really good judge of graphic novels. kids like things that don’t thrill me. With Sleepwalkers, I like the concept of the book much more than the finished product. but I think kids will like it a lot more than I did.
