Kindergarten-Grade 3-At birth, a boy is given a beautiful quilt by his grandmother. She has made it to keep away the dark things of the night, but only until the child is 'big enough to forge his own courage.' When he accidentally tears the quilt, nightmares rush out at him while he sleeps. Terrified, he searches for his grandmother"s room so that she can repair it, but first she sends him on a journey to the roof to obtain threads from the moon and the sun. She then repairs the 'cloth of dreams,' reminding the boy that he no longer needs it now that he has forged his own courage. The book starts off promisingly, with gorgeous endpapers of the quilt. The remaining illustrations are disappointing, however, especially in the lack of detail in the characters" faces-they never seem to change their expressions. Mayhew"s images are dark, and the drawing of a frightful hag dropping the boy into the gaping jaws of a huge fish is enough to scare both adults and children. This story is far more likely to cause nightmares than to alleviate them. Jim Aylesworth"s The Bad Dream (Albert Whitman, 1985) presents a much more sympathetic treatment, as does Audrey Osofsky"s calming and poetic Dreamcatcher (Orchard, 1992).
