Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3 This is one of those treasured picture books that has a fresh concept, beautiful poetry, and appealing illustrations. Written entirely in well-metered rhyme, the story is about an elflike man, Engelbert Sneem, who flies around on a carriage pulled by dragons, sucking up children's dreams with his dreadful vacuum cleaner. He then returns to his castle and enjoys them. The turning point comes when he experiences a child's nightmare that turns out to be about himself. This horrifies Sneem, resulting in a change of heart in which he travels the world taking nightmares away from children. The lyric language is delightful for reading aloud-"And while the boy dreamt/of the tale he had read,/A shadowy figure crept up to his bed,/And he sucked up the dream/and he plugged it up tight,/Then he chuckled and/scuttled away through the night." The softly colored cartoon illustrations are large and have various perspectives, magnifying the dastardly Sneem, who has a long pointy nose, pointy ears, and missing teeth. Kids will relish this story.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA
