I read a delightful short chapter book today by the prolific Sid Fleischman. The Dream Stealer is a Mexican-flavored tale about a sprite (of sorts) who is supposed to “catch” bad dreams, but what really caught my attention were the illustrations by Peter Sis. They are simultaneously delightful and scary. This would be a good books to hand to the third or fourth grade student who is beyond the Magic Tree House series, but not quite ready for longer novels. Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
