Two-time Caldecott Medal-winner, Van Allsburg's third book, Ben's Dream, is filled with detailed black and white illustrations. When Ben falls asleep to the sound of a rainstorm while studying for a geography test, his reverie takes him floating past many of the world's most famous landmarks: the Statue of Liberty, the Kremlin, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Great Wall of China, and more. There's even a shout-out to his first book, The Garden of Abdul Gasazi! In Very Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket with just the slightest sign of wear.
