Idenya lumayan tapi kurang di eksekusinya. Teksnya terlalu panjang, bisa diringkas dan dibuat jauh lebih menarik. Ilustrasinya bisa dibuat lebih menarik lagi.

I was not impressed with this book, which features a Peter Pan-like appearance by a flying train at the bedroom window and children straight out of the Precious Moments catalog. Though it originated in Sri Lanka, it seems awfully generic in its language and illustrations, and all are poorly laid out. The children do get a chance to explore space and learn a little about weather. Overall, I'd say take a pass on this book.

Great sneak-reading -in -book only sixteen pages, the children go on a trip while sleeping, can be used for science they went to mars and other great places.
