Kindergarten-Grade 2-The Sandman is looking for a friend, but everywhere he goes, people and animals fall asleep before they can become his playmate. He uses his magic airship to visit children in their rooms, people on the streets, animals in the forest, and even creatures in the sea. He finally meets up with the Moon, and they become special friends who spend their days together. The story is somewhat flat and uninspiring. The illustrator does a nice job of creating magic in the landscapes and night skies, but the rendering of the Sandman himself is too odd to be endearing.Shelley B.
