When a small, friendless boy goes to bed at his boarding school, an adventure is about to begin! First he finds an invitation in his turtle's bowl. Next he makes an escape--out the window, through the woods, across a river, and onto an island. And then he joins a grand celebration, with larger-than-life animals serving tea and dancing late into the night. And finally? After the journey back, he has a fantastic story to tell--the perfect way to make a friend.

A simple text and glorious illustrations combine to make a deceptively powerful and touching picture book, cementing Daniel Miyares's reputation as one of the most exciting children's book author-illustrators working today.

I enjoyed reading this picture book aloud with my three-year-old niece. While it is not a wordless picture book, the text is minimal, so she explained what was happening in the illustrations. We were both charmed by the giant turtle, and this is a small thing but I like that the size of the animals at the tea party seems to fluctuate. It adds to the surrealism. On that note, I'm still not quite sure if this book follows a dream or a surreal adventure, but maybe that's the point - it's open to interpretation! A perfect reading selection for bedtime.
