Nighttime on Sigmund's farm brings dreams to both the people and animals. And just what might the creatures be dreaming of? There's hay and apples, climbing and running, of course-but sailing away and bike-riding? Like all the best dreams these contain bits of the unexpected and show young readers the many shapes and paths dreams can take. Donald Saaf's luminous, magical paintings bring Harriet Ziefert's whimsical verses to life in this perfect book for the sleepy-time hours or in the early morning when dreams are still fresh.
