Vulco1 | 29 comments Cover may have been mostly black and the top half had some sort of tree, house and car on it. I know it was hardcover when I read it and kind of thick.

The characters make a point of saying the “Land of Dreams” and “Dreamland” are two very different places and one or the other is good and the other one is nightmarish. He has to travel from one to get to the other to wake up. Book may have opened with him hanging out with his dad at a carnival or something before he wakes up in whatever place he wakes up. There’s a waterfall scene in there somewhere where he almost goes over the side with his companions. If he had companions.

I read this in middle/elementary school around 1995 so it’s probably for the younger crowd.
