Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Cycles of metamorphoses propelled Banyai's Zoom and Re-Zoom, and this provocative, wordless volume similarly features leaps of visual logic. As the title suggests, Banyai may mean to duplicate rapid eye movement through images shown unfolding step-by-step-however, the effect is more like free association than languorous dream-narrative. The sequence opens with a dot that drips into a glass of water and, in stages, transforms into a round-headed blue doll. The doll topples the glass and moves into a second spread, where it steals part of a reflection from a puddle. As the pages turn, the doll's body elongates in funhouse fashion, and new characters appear, among them a spinning snowman that turns into a princess, and a frog that enlarges into a crouching prince. Once all the characters have assembled, the view widens onto a bedroom where a boy slouches, his hand atop a book open to the scene of the frog becoming the prince. When the boy groggily gets up, his dream entities rearrange themselves, and when he walks to the bathroom sink to brush his teeth, the whole dream spirals down the drain. A mirror reflects a now-empty bedroom, but a certain blue doll is propped next to the hot-water tap. Viewing Banyai's precisely drawn graphics is like watching a cartoon-set against blank, landscape-less backgrounds, his successive freeze-frame objects resemble animation cels. The illustrator questions perception on every page, prompting readers either to make up stories for each scene or simply to draw inspiration from his cinematic way of thinking.

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Rapid Eye Movement (REM) is a dream-like stage on the way to deep sleep which most people experience. Some can recall this stage after waking as one of illusion or bizarre happenings. This book visually represents the surreal experiences which one might recall from the REM period. You will need a leap of faith on this one.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Reality and fantasy intertwine, transmogrification abounds, and the impossible happens in this wordless excursion into the world of dreams. During REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, dreams evolve, and the cover art hints at these strange goings-on; two large bare feet are surrounded by some truly unusual objects. On the opening pages, a pair of eyes becomes a drop of water that morphs into a small blue man who elongates, then finds a string that turns into etc., etc. Just as in a dream, sense and nonsense blend until the sleeper (a boy in pajamas and warrior gear) awakes, seemingly unaware that he is surrounded by the animate and inanimate objects that populated his sleep. Groggily, he heads for the bathroom where he literally swirls the nighttime fantasy down the sink drain and embraces the new day. Banyai's distinctive illustrations are flat, boldly colored, and reminiscent of European comic art. They cleverly carry the ever-altering objects across one page and on to the next. After awhile, however, suspense diminishes and readers' curiosity wanes. When the sleeping child finally awakes, the fun resumes as dream-time objects find their real-life counterparts in the bedroom and bathroom, but loss of momentum midway may discourage ever reaching this conclusion. A purchase where Zoom (1995) and Re-Zoom (1995, both Viking) have loyal fans.Carol Ann Wilson, Westfield Memorial Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
Hold on tight—Banyai (Re-Zoom, 1995, etc.) has "animated" a new visual adventure that takes place behind closed eyes, where the dreamworld offers many more irrational possibilities than the realms of his earlier work.

Fans of Crockett Johnson's Harold will find the magic protocol familiar: A drawn line becomes a pond; the artist's reflection, when swirled in the water and fished out, turns into a coat. The clown, pup, and snowman who populate this world pay tribute to another dreamtime visitor: Windson McCay's Little Nemo. As wordless as Banyai's other books, the illustrations draw onlookers in; the same pictures that turn a frog into a prince also turn the pages and move readers through the book. It ends with a cliché—it was all just a dream—but not before the images have been grounded in the real toy vehicles and dolls of the young dreamer's room.
