About the Book
Ben has a problem. When he sleeps he dreams, and when he dreams, they're all nightmares! But he can also jump into other people's dreams. So when his friends start falling victim to an evil dream-monster that prevents them from waking, Ben knows he has to help them. Easier said than done when dreams can shift and the monster knows his way around the ever-changing landscape of the mind! With help from a talking rabbit-companion who has a mysterious past, Ben might just be able to defeat the monster and save his friends . . . if he can figure out how to use the power within him against his enemies.

My Take on the Book
Such an imaginative story. It was full of adventure, a hero, secrets, disguises, monsters, and a story that did not totally end. This book will keep the reader engaged and want more of the story. The author, Greg Grunberg, made sure you would keep turning the pages to find out what would happen next. It is written in a comic book style with illustrations and speech bubbles. The illustrator, Lucas Turnbloom, did a wonderful job with the illustrations. You could see the terror, relief, puzzlement, happiness, and sadness of the characters in the story.

The main character, Ben learns he has the ability to jump into other people's dreams. It is a dangerous ability as Ben learns about the monsters, captured friends, and his own challenges with waking up from a nightmare he jumped into. Ben does become a hero but the other dream jumpers who are stuck in dreamland will be involved in another dangerous situation. What is that new predicament? We will need to read the next book to find out.
