What a great imagination! I love thinking about these thing, trying to come up with ways to explain the why or the how. Here, we’ve got a quite interesting story about the source of our dreams (and the nightmares) and it’s so eloquently done. Woven in is the story of an angry boy and a woman who tries to connect with him. A nice, well written story. The disappintment comes in it’s being so short. I recommend it.
I have not read much Lowry other than The Giver, which stands as one of my all-time favorites. I was able to see Lois Lowry speak here in Knoxville at the grand ‘ol Tennessee Theater. It was nice. I coudn’t, however, stand in the extremely long line to get her autograph.
