THE DREAM PILLOW by Mitre Modarressi


Email this review


Celeste and Ivy are next-door neighbors, but they're not friends. When Celeste has a birthday party, Ivy brings her a gift pillow that gives Celeste nightmares. So when Ivy invites Celeste to her birthday, she disguises the pillow and gives it back to her. After three days of seeming exhausted, Ivy is finally absent from school altogether -- and Celeste knows why. She decides to tell Ivy about the pillow, and they take the problem to Ivy's mother, who made the pillow in the first place. It turns out that she put too many daisies in the Daisy Delightful Dream Pillow, so she cuts the magic pillow in half and makes two smaller ones, one for each girl. Not only is the problem solved, but Ivy and Celeste have become friends. Modarressi's illustrations, soft and jewel-like, fit her well-paced text. A lovely story about dreams and making new friends.
