My little guy got this for Christmas from his grandparents, and it's so lovely. It's a quiet, true tale of a young boy who's afraid of the dark and longs to be an astronaut; after witnessing the moon landing on a tv one summer night in cottage country, his life changes.

The story is cute (and possibly therapeutic for sleep-deprived parents), but the illustrations are what really make this gem. Adorably spooky aliens lurk in a dreamy twinkling twilight, and dreams are vividly rendered. My son savours each page. Highly recommended to any picture book-aged kids, and especially to those who love space or are scared of the dark.
