stealing away to dreamland  
Earlier this week, I spent some time at airports waiting for flights. Managed to read the new Sid Fleischman, THE DREAM STEALER. When I get the chance, I will scan and post the cover with art by Peter Sis who also has black and white sketches inside this short chapter book.

One night as Susana dreams, the dream stealer whisks away her dream before it is over. Susana is determined to get her dream back no matter what it takes. She tricks the dream stealer into eating some hot peppers. In return for some water, the dream stealer promises to take her to his castle where she can find her interrupted dream. Off they fly on an adventure that should feed Susana's dreams for many nights to come.

Stuff from nightmares, far off friends, and other citizens of sleep make appearances in this wonderful weave of family, myth, and dreams.

Here is a photo of Scout to entertain you until I have th chance to scan the cover.
