    Five friends who all live underground a grub, a beetle, two earth worms, and a caterpillar visit back and forth one winter in this beautifully illustrated picture book, originally published in Switzerland as Im Traum kann ich fliegen As the caterpillar slowly withdraws from the others, weaving a cocoon around herself, the remaining four friends are dismayed to discover that the onion put away by the grub, in anticipation of hard times, is greatly diminished With their companion gone, and Five friends who all live underground a grub, a beetle, two earth worms, and a caterpillar visit back and forth one winter in this beautifully illustrated picture book, originally published in Switzerland as Im Traum kann ich fliegen As the caterpillar slowly withdraws from the others, weaving a cocoon around herself, the remaining four friends are dismayed to discover that the onion put away by the grub, in anticipation of hard times, is greatly diminished With their companion gone, and food scarce, it is a terrible day Luckily, spring is just around the corner, with some surprising transformations in storeAlthough Eveline Hasler s narrative felt a little fractured to me, with attention divided between the story of the caterpillar, and that of the onion, I still enjoyed In My Dreams I Can Fly, due mostly to K thi Bhend s beautiful artwork I loved the underground vistas, and the many cozy scenes depicting the friends in their various little burrows Bhend s color scheme is warm and inviting, her creatures endearing Anyone looking for a good wintertime storybook could do a lot worse than this appealing little volume

    Lovely, whimsical illustrations Moral of the story is a fallacy grub will not be like caterpillar some day.

    I really enjoyed this book but I don t think it has much appeal to younger kids, at least in a storytime setting.

    A lot of North South books seem to suffer in translation my guess is the translators are fluent in both languages, but lack the grasp of how to put across a picture book for young kids This book also suffers from the pictures, yes, they are exquisitely detailed as the back flap gushes, but as so, they too have little child appeal Disappointing.

    This is an exquisite little book The illustrations are amazingly detailed and convey a sense of warmth of coziness The story of insect friends surviving underground in winter is also very sweet and manages to have a positive message without being heavy handed or pedantic As a child I would have poured over the details of the illustrations for hours

    not the typical book about animals in winter, this title is about insects holding out underground until spring illustations are intricate and better off shared as a lap story than a group read aloud.
