I would recommend this book for any young reader.

I remember reading this book in third grade for a report, and of all the books I read in twelve years of school, this is the only one I still really remember.

Format: Paperback
About 15 years ago, I read all the books my school library had by William Sleator, but the library did not have this book. I bought it recently, and I read it last night in one sitting! Very rarely does a book capture my interest to that degree; this book is just extremely gripping and fast-moving. Also, the dream itself and the kids' pursuit by the two men are very scary, and I had to know what was going to happen. Although I could complain a bit about lack of character development, I did find that I cared about the characters; however, a sequel that added some depth to them and explained the UFO more would be most welcome. I think this book would be a great choice both for reluctant young readers and for those who devour YA horror and/or sci-fi books, regardless of age.

I remember reading this book in third grade for a report, and of all the books I read in twelve years of school, this is the only one I still really remember. I give this book credit for actually getting me interested in reading. I was completely following along in the adventure with Paul and Francine to follow what their dream meant. I finally got the book for myself in high school, and it was just as good as I remembered it. Only real difference was when I read the first time, I thought that Paul and Francine were teenagers or something, much older than I was. Rereading now it seems like I they only are about 10 or 11. Definitely still in grade school if they are still having recess. The only reason I'm giving this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because at the ending, while very good, left a lot of questions. We get to the bottom of the dream's mystery, but we still don't know why the spaceship was there in the first place, or why exactly it gave these powers to Cookie and the kids.

I am re-reading this book after about 20 years since I first read it. Amazingly, I still remember the title of the book after all these years as I read it several times in my early teens. I just loved it then, and there are certainly very few books for young people that make such an impression that a reader will remember the title 20 years later! I found it gripping and intriguing. I would recommend this book for any young reader.

People should read "Into the Dream" because a lot of parts are very intense. I had no trouble understanding the plot. It wasn't very long so it's easy to finish. There are two people that are having the same dream every night. They know somrthing bad is going to happen. Find out the problem when you read it!

I first heard of this book when my brother was in the seventh grade (I was in third) and had acquired a copy for himself. Two years later, my fifth-grade teacher read the story aloud in class. The interesting part is that he instructed us to use our imagination and draw pictures based on the dream scenes (and the amusement park adventure). After he'd read the story aloud, I procured my brother's copy (by now abandoned) and read the story several times to amuse myself.

My only disappointment in the edition I purchased is that, for some reason, the Penguin publishers removed all the illustrations. When I got to read the book on my own, the original pictures helped me get into the story in depth. If the book is re-distributed anytime soon, the original illustrations would be greatly appreciated.

I first read this book in 5th grade. I loved it, but forgot who the author was, and the book's title. When I was browsing one day I saw the cover of this book and thought it just might be it. It was. I ordered it, read it, and immediately knew why I loved it as a child. I am a teacher and am currently reading it aloud to my 2nd graders. They don't want me to stop. It is an exciting thrill ride involving UFOs, telekinesis and telepathy! I recommend it to strong young readers (9+) to read on their own, or for parents and teachers to read to all ages.

I first read this book when I was in 3rd grade, now in my Senior year of high school, I still love to read it on rainy days. It allows children to open up to the parapsychology realm without too many shocking corners. The best part is when the characters are in the amusement park. The addition of a telepathic canine adds a humorous air to the story
