HI guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Well, it's time for the very first Storybook Sunday of the month and this time the honor goes to a title hitting bookstore shelves THIS TUESDAY via Disney Hyperion. It's a story whose arrival is tre magnifique for the time of year...you know, somewhere past Winter but not quite into Spring...and the tender tale it shares will warm hearts of all ages. So grab some floor or claim your favorite couch cushion, it's time for another STORYBOOK SUNDAY pick...
This is the story of one little dormouse's adventures through the land of dreams, for you see...he's not exactly spritely during the winter months. Nope. He takes after the bears, hibernation and all, and chooses to spend the cold and blustery days tucked warm in his tiny-but-perfectly-sized home...BUT...just because he's dozing, doesn't mean his imagination stops running.
If awards were handed out for Most Vivid Dreams By A Non-Human, this little guys would surely win! He's snoozing along but the journeys his mind takes him and and friends on are filled to the brim with fun, These good times and more await him just outside his door once Spring arrives and with it, his bestest friend. He and she make, along with their other animal friends, some of those very dreams come to fruition and thanks to the very capable hands of the illustrator, readers are not left behind to simply imagine those adventures.
I must say, I never imagined the life and times of a dormouse could be so entertaining...let alone CUTE! I mean, we take for granted the fact that some animals sleep through the winter, but have you ever REALLY stopped to wonder what's going on in their minds during those months? All that time to sleep, yes, but to think, ponder, and imagine? I wonder what we humans could dream up if given that much time? *curious* In any case, this is a great book for the season's transition as well as a wonderful way to whisk kiddos off to dreamland.
