Synopsis from Raincoast Books:

This delightful story features Paul Frank’s popular character Julius as he takes readers on a tour through the world of dreams. Julius loves to sleep because of all the fun things he can only do in dreams, from paddling down a strawberry milk river to performing in a rock concert on the moon. Children and parents alike will cherish this perfect-for-bedtime board book.


There are many bedtime books that deal with getting ready for bed, following a nighttime routine, saying goodnight to the day, but Only in Dreams deals with after the lights go out.

Sometimes closing your eyes and entering the world of darkness can be a scary thing. Only in Dreams has a wonderful approach by telling kids that dreams are their playground to do anything and everything in. The book gives kids permission to try flying or living in a house made out of cake. It sounds silly, but some kids need permission to explore the unusual, even in their dreams.

Kids will enjoy following Paul Frank’s Julius as he takes them through his adventurous dream that takes him right through until morning.
