This volume of the Sandman is odd. I'd have to say it's only required reading if you're either a woman, or the "must collect them all" type.

Basically it focuses on Barbie and her vivid dream life (which was briefly visited in 'A Doll's House'), where she is on a quest to save an enchanted land from the Cuckoo.

The way the Cuckoo fits into the story is well thought out. Personally, I enjoyed the character of Wilkinson (a talking rat in a trenchcoat) and am a bit disappointed that he doesn't appear in later volumes. Finally, this volume introduces Thessaly, who affects things later in the story.
