David Milgrim offers up an amusing extraterrestrial dreamscape in a story about a boy named Monty who wakes up on the wrong planet. Because it’s happened before, Monty isn’t too worried, but he is struggling to remember how he made it home again in the past. Neither his three-headed mother, his four-armed father, nor the plethora of creatures wandering around in horse costumes (because “everybody loves a horse”) are a help. Monty finds the answer he seeks on a visit to the Starman. “The sky was as big as it was beautiful. I wondered how I would ever find the earth in such a large place. It all made me feel very sleepy . . . .Then I closed my eyes. And when I woke up, I was home.” Milgrim’s droll picture book features engaging, childlike illustrations. (Ages 4–7 )
