Overview

In fun, rhyming couplets and striking artwork, the Chapmans present hilarious pictures of what dogs might dream of being and doing. Chewing on bones? Sleeping all day? No, these dogs dream of dancing on stage, running for president, flying to the moon, going to school, and yes, eating steak in a diner while the people wait outside on the street. Most dogs have been denied these "people only" experiences...until now!

This is a book for anyone with wild and wonderful dreams

Some dogs have simple dreams of bones or chasing cats, while others envision grander things, such as flying a plane or even being president.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Forced whimsy permeates the Chapmans' one-joke picture-book debut, which insists that "some dogs dream as people do--/ Hard to believe, and yet it's true!" The singsong text, offered in rhymed couplets, announces each dreamer's dearest wish. One spotted hound carries a shovel and wears a yellow hard hat: "Here's a dog with a wonderful goal/ She dreams of digging the largest hole!" Almost gaudily colorful oil paintings depict canine characters who enact fantasies of piloting a plane, walking on Mars and as a reporter "reading the news on the Morning Edition." High-voltage shades of purple, blue and fuchsia are used for the anthropomorphic pups, who have disconcertingly human eyes and smiles, and who live in a tropical paradise of palm trees and rolling hills (a "Hollywoof" sign appears in one reverie). There's no plot here, and not much of a point: "So now you know/ that when dogs dream/ It's not always/ what it may seem." All ages. (May) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Rhymed couplets describe the stuff of pups' dreams: "Some dogs dream of bones and such,/A cozy home,/A gentle touch." But others dream as humans do; they wish to be circus performers, astronauts, all sorts of things. The text is accompanied by bright cartoons rendered in oils "with the occasional dog hair mixed in." They show canines eating in restaurants with their people sadly waiting outside, a pooch campaigning for president, a cowdog rounding up cattle, etc. Boldly colored pages, each featuring a couplet on one side and a framed picture on the other, make all of this lots of fun. Sporadic sly references appear throughout, e.g., a sign with "HOLLYWOOF" on a hill, a campaign sign saying "PAW POWER," and a lamp base shaped like a bone. Although the book offers nothing startling in concept or execution, the text reads aloud well and the humorous illustrations will attract young readers.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
