Good Reads: The Other Felix

Explore the dreams of fourth grader Felix Schwartzwalder in                      
The Other Felix by Keir Graff. Each night Felix falls asleep and enters a dream world, a forest filled with monsters – he can always escape when he wakes up, but the evidence of monster chases follow him to the next morning, such as a torn bathrobe or pajamas, or muddy slippers. Dream land monsters aren’t Felix’s only problems, he has a bully at school and stressed and distracted parents. It is only when Felix learns to fight the monsters in his dreams, can he conquer his challenges outside of  dream land. A unique adventure and sweet story, that also helps to guide tweens through the sticky situations that accompany the onset of adolescence.
