Review: Before I Wake Up

Before I Wake Up Before I Wake Up by Britta Teckentrup
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A beautifully illustrated bedtime-dream story with rhyming couplets.

I truly adore the illustrations in this book as well as the soft, dream-like sentiments. UNfortunately, the narrative felt forced--perhaps a translation? and bored me rather than transported me. But it is a well-designed and executed picturebook, but the marriage of excellent illustrations and lackluster narrative really detracted from the possible "wow" of this title.
