Celeste and Ivey are two little girls traveling the sometimes muddled path to friendship. A dream pillow that brings nightmares goes back and forth between the two girls. When they enlist Ivy’s mother’s help, she divides the pillow in two, bringing the dream pillow’s effects to just the right blend for fun, magical dreams.
Friends after all; it’s a satisfying and heart-warming end to the tale.
The author’s watercolor illustrations complement the story beautifully. This is a perfect story for young girls navigating the early world of female friends.
