Review by: Joy Smith on Dec. 3, 2011 :
Dreaming Thomas is an old style fairy tale with beautiful illustrations. Thomas is the dreamer who is so forgetful that he even forgets to milk the cows one morning. Can someone who is that forgetful accomplish anything?! (Cows need to be milked or they become very uncomfortable, and you have to wonder why they're kicking their stalls instead of Thomas!) However, Thomas accompanies his brothers to the king's palace even though they don't think he can help the king and thus win the princess, and they don't intend to let him try. How could Thomas' dreaming help anyone?! I think sharing this story with children will make them appreciate the wonder of the imagination. I hope the whole family will enjoy Thomas' daydreams. Have the kids draw their own illustrations!
