'REM World' By Rodman Philbrick
Scholastic Inc 2002, Softcover, 109 pages.
In good original condition, Duffy sticker inside cover, all pages clean.

When Arthur Woodbury orders a weight-loss device from a comic book, he suddenly finds himself trapped in REM World, the endangered realm of dreams. If he doesn't figure out how to save REM World, no one will - and the future will cease to exist.

"Award-winning novelist Rodman Philbrick challenges the boundaries of time and place in this exciting fantasy. Harry Potter fans will recognize the misfit hero in a strange, new world. imaginative characters and a string of cliffhangers make it a fun and fast-paced read.

Eleven-year-old Arthur Woodbury, tired of being called "Biscuit Butt," orders a weight-loss device advertised in his comic book: "Lose weight while you sleep! REM World Products."
When the device arrives, Arthur discovers that the helmet transports him to a magical REM world. But because he did not follow the instructions carefully, he's stuck there, and even worse, he's unleashed a force that could destroy the universe.

The REM world he enters is populated with the Cloud People (who use their wings to glide in the World Above), the giants Grog and Droll (who rip apart continents as they run) and Morf, a cat-like creature who changes shape but consistently holds onto his caustic wit ("Try not to look too appetizing" are his only words of advice to Arthur when they crash inside a demon's cave).
These vivid personalities will usher readers quickly through the chapters. Ages 9-14."

Amazon reviews:
"I loved this book. Arthur enters the magical REM world. This science fiction novel has great characters ranging from Cloud People to Morf. It definitely ranks with Philbrick's Freak the Mighty in my book."

"REM WORLD is a fascinating book that will spark the imagination of those who read it. I recommend it for all ages." Please click here to ask a question
