Argentine author/illustrator Isol is this year's ALMA (Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, [...] ) winner. To my surprise, I found that in Astrid Lindgren's own country Sweden, Isol's work is not yet available in Swedish! SInce I got very interested to get to know about her children's books, I turned to Amazon, trying to find some books in English, which I understand far better than Spanish...I just chose this book, tempted by its mere title. Being the grand-mother of six, I have presented the book (in my own oral translation) to a couple of them. They were all a bit curious about the whole concept of what dreams are and ...can we decide what to dream in beforehand...but we have tried the idea. And those who remembered their chosen dream and what happened in it were thrilled. The book opens up a lot of thoughts and is food for good communication. Just two minor concerns: our youngest grand-child, age 3, soon discovered that the texture of the pages give a hint for what might happen in the dream; and...I am a bit curious to know what the chemistry of what is revieled after light exposure is made of, since it has a smell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical realism 5 Nov 2013
By Barbara Joosse - Published on Amazon.com

As a children's author, I have high expectation from the books I order, and this is one of my favorites. It's highly creative, whimsical, and lives in the shadowed world of magical realism. While it isn't a good book for all children, Nocturne will surely be treasured by the patient, imaginative child. The book is put together like a flip-up spiral notebook. When the spirals crush, the pages don't flip correctly, but I'm hoping I can bend them back into shape. Illustrations are simple and evocative. I have just ordered two more copies for my grandchildren, and ordered the rest of Isol's English books for myself.
