Nocturne

Written by: Isol
Translated by: Amado, Elisa
ages 4 and up / grades K and up

Nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Prize

Nocturne: Dream Recipes is a unique bedtime book that hints at the magic inherent in dreaming.

Twelve glow-in-the-dark pictures present possible inspirations for a night in which the hidden world becomes visible. Just choose a dream from among the pictures and descriptions in the book, and then turn off the light to see a surprising glow-in-the-dark image. Included are dreams such as the dream of going far away, the boring book dream, the dream of the cat who smelled the tuna casserole, and even the drawn dream (which children can create themselves).

Once again Isol's extraordinary creativity and humor have produced a truly wonderful, very original book.
