Penguin/Rocky Pond. Sept. 2023. 320p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780593532225.
Gr 3-7–Inside Out meets the chaos and challenges of stage theater in this highly imaginative world where dreams are productions. Behind the scenes stands the team to make it happen—the director, light crew, sound crew, and many more who make the “dreams” come to life. Luna’s dreams are produced by the Dreamatic cast and crew in The Lunarian Grand, a magical theater with a twist of its own. Like anything in life or theater, something can easily throw the whole production out of balance. When Luna and her family suffer a devastating turn of events in the waking world, a new director comes in the form of “Bad Dreams.” To keep things in order and make them right it’s up to Dormir, the loyal stagehand, and the Dreamtics team to help Luna and keep The Lunarian alive. This whimsical and magical theater story is one where love, determination, and loyalty are woven throughout. Fans of happy tales and lively characters will fall in love with this inventive concept.
VERDICT With a fresh take on the familiar concept of dreams, this theatrical book will be a showstopper for young readers.
