Like the Hidden Years collection, this is a beautiful little interlude between the original 8 books and the largely non-Wendy works that follow. Where the art of Hidden Years is lavish and colorful, Dreamtime is muted but warm, lots of charcoals, heavy pencils, and inks. I think my favorite part upon re-reading this was the way each dream is told before a background of nightly life in the Holt: hunting, tanning, playing, appreciating the forest. These are actually the scenes I remember most from the series.

Also, the little addendum featuring Wendy chatting with Cutter and Skywise is way too tantalizing, esp. now, many years after it was written. When will Wendy return to Elfquest?! When?!?!
