"Unable to sleep, a child summons the help of the 'Good Dream Dragon' in this fairy tale–like story of nighttime hijinks…. With a final allusion to bravery, Davis lightly inserts emotion into what’s otherwise a pleasantly straightforward bedtime aid."—Publishers Weekly

"The concept of the Good Dream Dragon will reassure little ones who might have nighttime or bad-dream anxiety…. Dreamland itself is, fittingly, safe and whimsical. The illustrations are soft with twilight purples and playful patchwork scenery. The idea of a protective dream guide is perfect for the preschool crowd, often newly aware of nighttime fears. Sweet and gentle, an ideal bedtime read."—Kirkus Reviews

"With endpapers featuring cupcakes, pink pigs, friendly cows, and sprinkled cookies, this book will have children on the path to sweet dreams before they have turned a single page....
