"Dicmas' slight tale is a perfect vehicle for her imaginative illustrations and offbeat animals. Her friendly, loosely drawn shapes are colored in pastel blues, greens, and pinks, complemented by the rosy dawn as the sun comes up on Louis' adventures. Sweet and frolicsome." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Pastel cartoons give each animal a clear personality and Dicmas balances their wide-eyed faces of fright with fond glances once everyone's out of peril. VERDICT The large comedic scenes will work well in storytimes and as one-on-one bedtime reads." -- School Library Journal

"Dicmas' droll, simple sentences are well matched by her pastel-colored, low-key (but bigeyed) illustrations. A good fit for storytime." -- Booklist

"As Louis tells them about the amazing adventure he was having in his dream, he realizes his sleepwalking is causing a lot of trouble. Not to worry. The next day, the neighbors give Louis the perfect gift to keep him safe no matter where his dreams take him." -- Literacy Daily, "Meet Some Memorable Characters"

"...the book is entertaining while also starting a conversation about something that kids often deal with and never find in conversations. It would also be good to read with siblings dealing with others sleepwalking." -- Unleashing Readers

"A thoroughly charming, original, and impressively entertaining picture book for children ages 3 to 7, Courtney Dicmas' "Lemur Dreamer" is a unique and unreservedly recommended addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections." -- Midwest Book Review
