  • 2.5 3.0 stars This one s a weird one, it s written by and illustrated by two of Maxfield Parrish s cousins, Anne and Dilwyn and yes, there is an art deco feel to it, both text and pictures It s weird enough that I wonder if Neil Gaiman encountered it although his mind is strange enough not to need this as inspiration It begins with a poem excerpted from the author s Knee High to a Grasshopper about a coach and its driver who carry dreams to children, beautiful dreams to the good and nightmares t [...]

  • My very large extended family read this book together when I was a kid I m a child of the 80s and my childhood response to this book was gag me with a silver spoon, which upset one of my older cousins because she adored this book She was a very princessy sort of gal I was that kid who liked to read in trees I ve always been a right proper heathen, even when I was little.My opinion hasn t changed much as an adult ha I can overlook the strong Christian undertones It s the purple prose that annoys [...]

  • 1925 Newbery Honor BookThis book is actually public domain the copyright was not renewed so it expired so it can be found online to read for free I was not terribly impressed with this book It starts with a poem about the Dream Coach, a magical coach that carries dreams to all the children of the world think Santa Claus meets the Sandman Bad children are punished with nightmares but sometimes good children accidentally get nightmares too.The rest of the book is four short stories of the children [...]

  • The first three stories in this book range mostly from what s the point to please, just no , with only hints of greatness, but the fourth which occupies nearly half the book is a wonderful little tightly plotted fantasia that deserves a reissue possibly as a lavishly illustrated picture book, if any pictures could live up to the descriptions.I would rate this book far, far above Tales from Silver Lands, the painfully whitewashed collection of South American folktales which beat it out for the 19 [...]

  • Read the full review here newberyandbeyond newbery rThe book is made up of five stories of the dreams of children around the world, and it s framed by the story of the dream coach itself I love the idea of that, and I can see parents in the 20s reading this to their kids as a bedtime story The story is helped along by some really nice illustrations by Dillwyn Parrish.Unfortunately, this book suffers from 1920s racism What I mean by that is, although The Dream Coach doesn t come right out and say [...]

  • Not one of the outstanding of the early Newbery Honor books The premise is good, but the stories are not very memorable Also, the descriptions found in the story of the Little Chinese Emperor are very culturally insensitive For example his little round face, as round and yellow as a full moon or The Little Emperor opened his eyes and saw the face of Princess Autumn Cloud bending over him, as yellow as a lemon I m guessing Anne Parrish never met anyone from China.

  • Twas cute I don t know what to say than that, but it s legitimately very cute I feel like it d be good to read sections of it to a kid before bedtime to clear the room of monsters and bad thoughts There s some light poetry, some drawings, and then stories of the types of dreams different characters have They re very fanciful stories, and cuuuute.

  • Wish I knew about this book when I was a child or even when mine were younger It would be a fun book to read aloud at bedtime as you drift off into dream land It s been criticized for being outdated and racist, but this could easily be edited when reading aloud without hurting the story A very good read.

  • A very random book, but that s to be expected I guess from a book about peoples dreams Anne Parrish thinks she s a poet, but she s not You can also see her attempts at making the dreams kind of magical, but she fails miserably Then at the very end it turns into a Save The Earth kind of book Weird.

  • I m guessing she means coach as in and not although I would certainly be interested in reading a book about someone who coached dreams.

  • I just didn t like this at all Having to read it online didn t help It is dated It is preachy, mostly the short stories about children dreaming around the world are boring.
