This timeless story ends with a whimsical twist as Santi learns a valuable lesson about self-determination while also learning he is not the only dreamer!


"A clever picture book with an unexpected punch line that will delight young readers . . . Ray's text is spare and approachable . . . accessible to beginning, independent readers . . . Clever text is elevated to a true delight by Germano's wonderful, cartoonish images, which look like they wouldn't be out of place in a Studio Ghibli animated film . . . Full of kid appeal."  —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
