Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Written and illustrated by a mother-and-daughter team, this tale of a magical quilt that unleashes a series of dream adventures doesn't quite hit the mark. Alex, spending a week with a great-aunt, sleeps beneath the quilt, which every night dispatches him into a different fantasy. Princesses, dragons, and animals and insects that talk figure prominently; settings include a world beneath the sea and a medieval play. The text, apparently aiming for an old-fashioned storybook feel, is both overlong and overwritten ("Alex stared at her, round-eyed, but he remembered the young princess and a feeling of bravery swelled his chest"), and the various episodes consequently lose momentum. Amy Zerner's imaginative collages fare better; resembling lush, Victorian valentines, they may appeal to fans of Michael Hague. Previous works by the Zerners include Scheherazade's Cat and Zen ABC.

Ages 5-up. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Beginning with a richly detailed cover depicting a Victorian-style crazy quilt, this mother-daughter collaboration is a visual treat. The writing is uneven, though, with an overuse of vague adverbs such as ``slightly'' and ``rather.'' The Zerners tell the story of young Alex's visit to great-aunt Rachel's house by the sea and of his nightly dreams that are inspired by the family quilt under which he sleeps. Accompanied by a dragon and a cat, the boy encounters spiders, gnomes, evil weasels, and, of course, princesses. As the train taking him to his aunt's house passes windmills, and as he imagines it as ``...a great animal puffing along, filling the air with smoke and sparks,'' readers may conclude that the story takes place much earlier in this century; a later mention of milk cartons, however, confuses the issue. The story line echoes Katharine Pyle's Counterpane Fairy (Dutton, 1928; o.p.), in which a fairy transports a sick child to fantastic adventures inspired by a patchwork quilt. The generously sized pages are sprinkled with small, jewellike collages and illustrations; full-page renditions of sections of the quilt are scattered throughout; and deep-blue chapter divisions feature smiling moons and suns. The slow pace and old-fashioned language will not engage children, though the book may intrigue nostalgic adults.-Ruth S. Vose, San Francisco Public Library
Chris Sherman
This mother-and-daughter team have produced a beautiful, old-fashioned storybook that is just right for bedtime reading or gift giving. A somewhat apprehensive Alex travels to his aunt's house near the sea for his first, long, away-from-home visit. Wrapped up each night in his great-great grandfather's patchwork quilt, Alex dreams an adventure related to the patchwork piece he notices right before he falls asleep. Together with Daisy the cat, he meets a talking dragon, saves a beautiful princess, finds Father Neptune's trident, and has several other not-too-scary adventures before his week ends and he returns home. This is not a picture book in the usual sense. Amy Zerner's illustrations are reproduced from fragments of an actual quilted fabric collage she created.
