Where do dreams come from? What stealthy nighttime messengers are the guardians of our most deeply hidden hopes and our half-forgotten fears? Drawing on her rich imagination, two-time Newbery winner Lois Lowry confronts these questions and explores the conflicts between the gentle bits and pieces of the past that come to life in dream, and the darker horrors that find their form in nightmare. In a haunting story that tiptoes between reality and imagination, two people, a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy, face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see.
"Spellbinding....Exquisite, at times mesmerizing writing." (Publishers Weekly)
"The prose is light as gossamer; the story as haunting as a dream." (Kirkus Reviews)
