The children of the world are tired of doing what they're told. A mischievous dream whispers to them that they should stop listening to their parents, and adults everywhere are in for a whole heap of trouble. But it doesn't end there. Next the dream visits all the animals, and tells them they should do whatever they want, too. Soon animals are invading fine restaurants, taking up all the space on the couch, and leaving the water on when they get out of the shower. Can Albidaro, Guardian of Children, and Olara, Guardian of Animals, put everyone back where they're supposed to be?
The wit and lyricism of Julius Lester and the gloriously lush paintings of Jerry Pinkney unite to create a beautiful, humorous original fable that's sure to delight their fans.
