Product Description:
 
"These figs are very special," the woman whispered. "They can make your dreams come true." — Thus Monsieur Bibot, the cold-hearted dentist, was given two ordinary-looking figs as payment for extracting a tooth from an old woman's mouth. Monsieur Bibot refused to believe such nonsense and proceeded to eat one of the figs for a bedtime snack. Although it was possibly the finest, sweetest fig he had ever tasted, it wasn't until the next morning that Monsieur Bibot realized it indeed had the power to make his dreams come true. While dragging his poor dog, Marcel, out for his walk, he discovered that his strange dream from the night before was becoming all too real. Determined to make good use of the second fig, Monsieur Bibot learns to control is dreams. But can he control Marcel? Once again Chris Van Allsburg explores the mysterious territory between fantasy and reality in an uncanny tale that will intrigue readers of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  The author is brilliant and the grainy drawings are perfect, January 12, 2016
By shoe fan
I use this book to teach irony in high school lit course. . The author is brilliant and the grainy drawings are perfect, but he includes some questionable allusions to the Eiffel tower becoming limp. Maybe as an adult I am reading into in too much, but it feels icky. I am sure sophisticated older students might look twice. I gloss over it really fast, and it has not been an issue in class.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Parents know best I guess., November 07, 2015
By malka monroe
I enjoyed the book. I read it to my third grade class, and a mother complained that it gave her daughter nightmares. You can never tell what will scare a child.
