A picture story book especially for children who have bad dreams or nightmares. It both entertains and gives children the tools they need to understand their dreams and the feelings that cause them.

By the fourth and last dream, Joey can recognize by himself that certain of the day's events stimulated him to create an unpleasant experience for himself in his sleep. As a result, he goes peacefully and confidently back to sleep without needing to be helped by his parents.
