Benjamin is your average 9-year-old kid but his dreams have been getting weird lately. When he compares himself to other kids, he sees his dreams as being boring. Most of the time he just dreams about being a part of his favorite show: Jurassic Superheroes. The show is about talking dinosaurs who fight evil, in his dreams he is helping the stars of the show battle bad guys. Lately though those dreams are turning into nightmares.

One night he wakes up from his nightmare and finds a talking dinosau

“Benjamin Buckingham and the Nightmare’s Nightmare” was an enjoyable read. Okay, it IS meant for children/YA, but I was in a need of a good chuckle and that it gave me.

But what happens when Benjamin enters a different world? One where there’s a dream machine and nightmares come calling?

I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

From the minute I opened this book I was hooked. Benjamin Buckingham dreams each night that he is a hero in his dreams. He travels with a group of dinosaurs from his favorite show. He helps save the world from a villain and he is the leader of the good guys. It is ironic that his teacher has given them dream journals to keep for a week. When they share them out in class he realizes that his dreams are nothing like

When I told my kids there's a new book on the horizon, with talking dinosaurs and castles and monsters, their eyes sparkled with glee! We read Benjamin Buckingham and the Nightmare's Nightmare one night and my boys loved it.

Benjamin was being bullied at school when he told his class his dream about dinosaurs saving the world in the hands of a monster. His classmates insisted Ben was telling them about his favorite TV show Jurassic Superheroes and just made up his dream. Devastated at school (an

When I received my very first request to review a book, I was so excited! I found it's page and read the synopsis, and I was hooked. Although it isn't a book I would normally read, I found it to be a lot like Jason Segel's Nightmares, which I also really enjoyed.
The story follows Benjamin Buckingham, whose dreams of dinosaurs and adventures get invaded by a terrible monster. He wakes up to find that people can't dream anymore - nightmares are taking over - and a dinosaur from his dream is in his

When I was contacted to review this book, I was already overwhelmed with books to review. However I went to Gregory's website and was enchanted! I enjoy quirky stories and began to read. I was hooked right from the start.

Benjamin Buckingham and The Nightmare's Nightmare is a mix of Alice in Wonderland and Charlie in the Chocolate Factory. You could feel yourself sliding down the hole into Benjamin's dreamworld. Benjamin was a likeable character and I found myself rooting for him.

Benjamin Buckingham and the Nightmare’s Nightmare is a fun tale about perspective and confidence. It will resonate with older children. There are no illustrations, less the cover, and it is a fairly lengthy chapter book about visiting the land where dreams and nightmares (daydreams too) are made.

Parallel with our reality: politics, subterfuge, alliances, and the like run afoul. A different boy, a special boy, Benjamin Buckingham finds himself stuck in another land and finds new friends, all diff

Magic, Monsters and Dinosaurs!

Great YA book but really would for kids of any age, whether read by or read to, and as an adult, it was fun and engaging story into the world of a 9 year-old's dreams. What is real and what's not? filled with talking dinosaurs, and wondering if there is any escape from the dreams but what is a dream and what is not? Great story and well-written. Capturing the boy's imagination and even that of the reader.
