Nasla’s Dream by Cecile Roumiguiere and Simone Rea - OPTIONAL

Nasla’s Dream by Cecile Roumiguiere, illustrated by Simone Rea
. PICTURE BOOK. Princeton Architectural Press, 2020. $18. 9781616899509 



Nasla is trying to fall asleep, but she had her father put her toys away because she thought she was a too big for those. Now something seems to be stirring on top of her wardrobe and she’s not so sure. 

Sometimes Nasla’s musings seem child-like but other times they are way too deep for a child. Similarly, the illustrations are somewhat simple – maybe reaching towards child-like, but in reality, they are oddly sophisticated. The disjointed words and pictures don’t allow th reader to settle into the story.
