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.
Excerpt (from the back cover):
A boring dream is a waste of a night!
In this book you will find adventurous dreams, silly dreams, funny dreams, even slightly scary dreams. All you have to do is follow these instructions:
Choose one of the dreams in the book after reading the titles and looking at the pictures.Before you go to sleep, open the book to the dream you've chosen, and place it on your night table under a bright light. Make sure you can see the picture when you are lying down. Turn out the light! You will see the luminous traces that the dream left behind on the page. Look for as long as you like, then close your eyes and follow the dream to its hiding place.
This glow-in-the-dark book will make sure that no night is wasted. Sweet dreams!

"Isol provides fodder for sweet (and sometimes not-so-sweet) dreams in a beguiling book built around glow-in-the-dark technology." -Publishers' Weekly
