A Wonderful Book! 26 Oct 2004
By K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book, a must have for children. Excellent illustrations and a great fun story. I bought it along with a bunch of great picture books for my kids when they're a bit older. But sick of our board books, I broke this one out for my 2 1/2 year old, and she loves it! I think it would be even better for kids a little older, maybe around 3-6, but even tiny ones can enjoy. And I know I enjoy it!
Dream Adventure for Kids 4 Oct 2005
By Davidoff Lung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading the book, I was attracted by the funny and colourful dream adventure. The illustrator was not only using the attractive pictures to arouse children interest, but also introduced colour names and descriptions to children through the elephant trousers. Thus it is not a book for children leisure only.

One of the pages was ripped completely in half. It had been taped back together. Also, the binding is loose.
