When 11-year-old Michael moves from New York to Jerusalem with his family, he forms a close relationship with his ailing grandfather. In this novel for readers 8 to 12 by Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Uri Orlev, the lonely boy's grandfather shares an incredible gift with him—the ability to enter his dreams. Then their adventures begin, through which Michael's grandfather has a final lesson to impart.
"A gentle fable of community connection … and a heart-tugging tale about passing the generational torch from grandfather to grandson. With a clean sense that less is more, [Uri] Orlev has crafted a sweetly mysterious and quietly moving read."—Booklist (starred review)
