'Timbi's Dream' by Max Nowaz is a children's book told in rhyme, or it's supposed to be, but I found the rhyming to be pretty stilting and not very rhythmic.
Timbi is a young boy who has strange dreams of flying through the sky. They seem to be brought on by applying some medicinal cream to his ears. He tries it with his brothers and they join him too. There are other surprises too, but I won't spoil them.
There are pictures, which I found a bit crude in design. The rhyming scheme stumbles a bit. I did like the story and what happens, but the bit with the cream is just strange and keeps being a plot point. I would hope something like this wouldn't lead a young child to try to take grownup medicine.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Matador and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
