Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Written in rhyme with playful language, this picture-book fantasy with rollicking artwork makes a fun read. A whistle blows. Children, adults, and animals board a locomotive for an imaginative ride to Dreamland. The train's inventive cars and lively, abstract cartoonlike passengers zig zag, make loopy loops, and clickety-clack across the bouncy railroad tracks, passing through "Wiggletown," "Giggletown," "Yawwwwwn," "Groggy Grove," and "Snuggle Cove." The energetic train gradually slows as dozing passengers arrive in Dreamland. Watercolor and marker artwork with accents of graph-paper shapes convey the tale's changing moods. This entertaining bedtime story is a worthy choice for most collections.—Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

By Carol Blanchard on June 7, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is a delightful book that takes your child on a journey from wakefulness to sleep, on a very clever train ride. We go from Wiggletown, the town of Yawwwwwn, Groggy Grove and Snuggly Cove, and other sleepy stops along the way, to the final destination...Dreamland. I bought this book for my three year old Grandson, and he absolutely loves it. We can never stop at just one reading, he has to board that train twice, at least. The book is very well illustrated with colorful, fanciful drawings. This is a" must read" for any preschooler, I highly recommend it, so does my grandson!!

My nephew William was only 3 when they moved to Sweden. Now my brother and SIL own a home there and he has a baby sister nearly a year old. Lucky little bilingual boy sang songs to the rhythm he created from the poetry in this book (according to his mom) all the time they were living in their temporary apartment! He couldn't WAIT to get his hands on it again! "All Aboard For Dreamland" is a treat for anyone looking to enter the land of YAWN!!!
Thank you, Melanie, for this treat of a book! I hope you write something else soon! I can't wait to introduce your next book to my nephew!

The writing is catchy - lots of fun words and rhymes. The illustrations are sweet also. I read it in a soft voice, so it sounds almost like a lullaby, which helps my little grandchildren feel calmed by the rhythm of the words.
