School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-After a dream transports a boy into a human chess game, through a castle, past a dragon, and over Escher-inspired seascapes, he awakens to find himself surrounded by the objects that morphed during sleep. With the multiple meanings suggested by the title and a richly drawn world, repeated readings are repaid. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
