Excerpt:

When you compare your dreams to what happens while you’re awake, your daytime life might seem pretty boring. Have you ever had any of these dreams:
– that you were flying on a dragon’s back
– that you were eating a hot fudge sundae
– that you were being kissed by your favorite movie star
– that your teeth were falling apart
– that you were riding in a car with no brakes
– that you were hunting for the room where you were going to take a test
– that you were falling through black space
– that you were soaring to the moon
– that you were running naked down the school hallway
– that you were wearing a totally cool outfit
– that you were nearly drowned by a tidal wave
– that you were trapped in your body
– that you found an extra room in your house
– that you were talking with someone who is dead?

If you have, then you’re not alone. All these have been dreamed by kids a lot like you. Welcome to the wild, weird, and wonderful world of dreams!
