Appelemando loves to dream The villagers think he will never amount to much but his friends know better They can see his dreams drift up from the top of his head and float into the skyThen one rainy day Appelemando's dreams are blown onto all the wet. The last Polacco book I read was an early autobiography and this was one of the books mentioned in it So I know Polacco identified with dreamy Appelemando who is appreciated by his four best friends but not the rest of the villagers I love how his dreams are made visible just as art is and how daydreams and art are given respect here Lovely illustrations creative concept
