My fiancé has been following the comics the entire time we've been together. I picked this and volume 2 up on a whim, figuring that he might enjoy the novelty of it.

I began reading it last night because I was up with a bad cough and went into the living room to keep from waking him up. By the time it passed and I was able to go back to bed, I had nearly devoured the entire volume.

The graphics aren't my favorite, and you can see how the artist had a bit to learn about natural body posture and rea
I was skeptical about the graphics at first - generally a little more computer generated than I like. The story line proved to make up for the iffy graphics and I'll definitely be on the lookout for the next book in the series as I totally fell in love with the story.

Reason for Reading: book was nominated for a cybils award.

Summary: When Alexander was a little boy he used to dream every night that he was in Dreamland with his friends: Nastajia the elf girl, Kiwi the fairy and Paddington Rumblebottom the third, a rock boy. Ah, the adventures they had but after a particularly frightening episode the dreams stopped until one day in his college dorm Alexander receives a care package from his mom with a necklace of a sword, he mysteriously brought back from Dream

So the book is part what's happening to him current
What if you could revisit the fantasyland you played in as a child, and found that all your friends there had grown up too? In The Dreamland Chronicles, a webcomic turned into a three-volume print series, children can visit a place called Dreamland in their sleep, where they have tame adventures and are watched over by friendly elves, fairies, and other creatures. Alexander, an immature, slacker college student, unexpectedly finds himself revisiting Dreamland. He'd forgotten all about it in the ...more
I have NO idea why these excellent booksa re attributed to a different. albiet simlarly spelled author. However, I want to make sure to review the correct ones... Dreamland Chronicles is an AWESOME graphic novel. Brilliantly designed and drawn, with wamr, compassionate and dynamic characters, and gorgeous scenery. Written magnificently, Dreamland is the branchild of Scot Chritian Salva, who should be among the heros of comics and graphic art fans everywhere. He offers his excellent books for fre ...more
I really enjoyed this series so far. Number 4 comes out summer of 2010. I would recommend for Junior High and up. Language is mostly clean - the only issue may be costumes of some characters. Otherwise - it really grabs you and keeps your attention! SD
Really good book.
