Editorial Reviews

Review

"A rare, enchanting mixture of graceful rhyming verse and adorable, Hummel-sweet illustrations... Martin’s paintings, in rich, creamy opaque colors, have a retro look that recalls early Golden Books, but with more brush-stroke texture. They’re so nursery-worthy you may be tempted to snip a few out and frame them." --The New York Times

"Enchanting...Little ones won't mind curling up, thanks to the lovely whimsical illustrations." --Parents Magazine

"Tender and dark, this brings to mind the dark and wooded world of classic fairy tales — but with a refreshingly quirky twist." --The Atlantic Wire

"It's a perfect bedtime book as it creates a feeling of security and comfort paired with the endless possibilities for exploration and adventure that dreams bring. The illustrations are rich and sumptuous, yet delicate and ethereal. It's a lovely book, one that you'll want to hold onto for years to come." --Apartment Therapy

"This new bedtime book will lull your little one to sleep with its whimsical rhymes and low-lit illustrations. The book has a slightly vintage-feel, making it an instant classic and your child will be looking forward to his or her own sweet dreams after reading about the ones in the book." --Metro US

"These stunning, full-color illustrations rely on polished brush strokes, midnight blue backgrounds and ethereal light to produce an almost surreal atmosphere in which children quietly ride their dream animals to fantastical venues, silently suggesting the infinite possibility of dreams. A visually elegant and textually cadenced bedtime treat." --Kirkus Reviews

"The minimalist ink-sketched bedrooms of each dreamer give way to luxuriant fairy-tale images rendered in dense, subtly radiant colors, which are reminiscent of classic European illustration...Will take firm grip of readers’ imaginations as they make their own ways to dreamland." --Publishers Weekly

"Whether taking tea with mermaids in pale green waters, flying over a prehistoric world on a winged bicycle, or painting the stars while resting on the moon, these dreams suggest delightful and fantastical experiences. Martin sketches the sleeping children in black and white and renders the enchanting scenes of their dreams in vivid color. A sweet and lyrical bedtime story." --Booklist

About the Author

EMILY WINFIELD MARTIN sketches, paints, and stitches to create imaginary worlds and characters. She is the author/illustrator of The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer. Her store, The Black Apple, has been featured in national publications and on TV shows, including the New York Times and The Martha Stewart Show. The inspiration for Oddfellow's Orphanage, Emily's first book for children, came from the real I.O.O.F. (Independent Order of Oddfellows), dancing bears, ragtime music, and magic and mysterium of all sorts. Originally, Emily painted portraits of the children and adults at the imaginary orphanage, and from the portraits the stories emerged—enough to fill a book!
Emily lives among the giant fir trees of Portland, Oregon, with her fellow adventurer, Josiah, and their cat Miette.

Emily Winfield Martin makes paintings, books and other things. When she was small, she spent every moment drawing, reading, dressing rabbits in fancy clothes, and having many peculiar daydreams. When she grew up, she began to illustrate those daydreams and she created a cottage industry called The Black Apple, which sells all manner of her art and etceteras.

She works in a tiny nook of a studio filled with old children's books, wind-up toys, and stacks of fabric. She lives in Portland, Or.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 STARS! Simply THE BEST bedtime book! Our daughter was transfixed by each page and the concept.
By Nic on February 24, 2016
10 stars! By far the best bedtime book we've found, and we have at least 40 on rotation. Very few make it into the top 4 slots that are read nearly every night. So far this book has been requested each night and ONLY this book. We read it 4-5 times and she spends minutes gazing at the incredibly magical artwork on each page. Today she re-created the under-the-sea mermaid tea party dreamscape! (see photo)
Emily Martin is our new beloved author and illustrator! My husband is an artist in the film/animation industry (also writer) and he was wowed by her work and in awe. The ultimate judge though, is our daughter, who is 2 and 4 months. She is an extremely picking bedtime book reader.
Some of her favourites include:
Bear Snores On
Steam Train Dream Train (close to the top of the list now) [[ASIN:1452109206 Steam Train, Dream Train]]
The Big Red Barn
The Wonderful Things You Will Be (by Emily Martin)
The Goodnight Train [[ASIN:0547718985 The Goodnight Train]]
Goodnight Moon (no longer in top 4 but was for a year)
Journey (by Aaron Becker) [[ASIN:0763660531 Journey]]
Bedtime in the Meadow

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bedtime story with a little pity
By Z on March 8, 2021
Good bedtime story with very beautiful illustrations. The only downside is that there is one scene of the story talking about circuses. This make me debating whether I should read the book to my baby.

To my mind, I don’t like people training animals to act like human or to entertain human. Especially people usually doing that by force.

2.0 out of 5 stars Circus animals..? :(
By Chelsea P. on January 7, 2021
No doubt this book has beautiful illustrations, however I was disappointed when I came across the page depicting circus animals. I know the artist meant well and it is a children’s fantasy book, but this is something I feel strongly against. As most of us may know, circus animals endure a lot of horrible cruelty to preform. I’d rather not teach my child that a circus that uses animals for entertainment is happy or fun. For this reason I will be returning the book, it’s just not for us.
