Julian, Dream Doctorby Ann Cameron
"If Julian has not already won readers' hearts with his [earlier] exploits, he will here when he tries to find out his father's secret dream for a birthday present. Surprised at hearing his father mumble 'two snakes,' Julian duly catches and presents them, only to discover that snakes are his father's recurring nightmare. Cameron's style is elegantly smooth and the characters come alive through easy dialogue and involving action."--Bulletin, Center for Children's Books.

I think the reason I gave this book a four star rating is because it gave the story away in the beginning. The characters are very funny, and Julian always makes mistakes and escapes. Huey, one of the characters is very funny. --Josh (Second Grade) I think the characters are five stars because Huey is funny, Dad is strong, Julian is thoughtful and Mom is very, very nice. Gloria is also peaceful. I gave the story 3 stars because it said that snakes have "bad eye sight," and I thought that was not true. I don't like when people say something wrong about snakes. Overall, I gave four starts because the characters are very interesting. --Milen (Second Grade) I gave it four stars for characters because out of all the characters, I like three of them: Julian, Gloria, and Daughter of Blue Fang. My favorite part is when the kids give presents. I would give the whole book five stars because it deserves it. Go Julian Dream Doctor! --Merin (Second Grade)
