"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

This is a very accessible book with gorgeous ilustrations. The story is simple to understand and very well written. It's a shame it was so difficult to find at bookstores.
We are already waiting for the next adventure the author is working on.
Sir Muffin Muffinson watches over baby Emma while she sleeps. If the room isn't tidy, the dustrats come out to play. Then Sir Muffin must don his trusty vacuum backpack and catch them. The problem is that as they hide in each room the rooms are transformed into different things like a castle, or an underwater scene, or some place with monsters. Can Muffin catch the dustrats and save little baby Emily?
I loved the imagination and detail in the art. There are so many details to find and look at. The art is great and the story is pretty cute. The dustrats are playful and mischievous, but not scary in any way. This is a good picture book to read aloud.
I received a review copy of this ebook from POW! Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
Sir Muffin grabs his tool of choice, his vacuum, and starts off to get those pesky dustrats before the can scamper into the dreams and wreck havoc. Each day of the week is represented, with the pages illustrating the dream for that day. Emma does indeed have an amazing imagination because from winter wonderlands to magic kingdoms, the ocean to outer space, it is all here. Things do end up going a bit crazy and Sir Muffin has to work pretty hard and team up with some unlikely allies to hopefully make things right again.
I enjoyed this book very much. I could easily see this becoming a bedtime or story time favorite as the writing flows very well. I enjoyed how even the print tends to go a little haywire when the chaos comes but settles back into normal by the end. Personally, I think things like this add a nice touch and helps bring the written word to life on a page.
The illustrations are fantastic! Adria Regordosa illustrated this book himself and honestly, it may be my favorite thing about the book! The pages are so detailed that I spent at least 5 minutes per page trying to find all the things that Emma dreamed about. The magical forest may have been the one I was drawn to the most and it is the one I will go back to and explore some more. I can see this being something that parents or story tellers can spend huge amounts of time looking at with the children just finding different things, or coming up with what they think Emma may have dreamed about. Stories within stories, if you will!
I will leave you with this quote from the book:
“Sometimes her dreams can get a little wild.”
I would certainly suggest adding this one to your personal library or if you are a book seller, your shelves. The world needs dreamers, even when their dreams get a little wild.
I obtained this book through Net Galley and have left an honest review.
I'd call this one more for the preschool end of the listed age range. The illustrations are more impressive than the story and text.
I was provided a copy for review by the publisher.
