In the beginning, Ben and Margaret were going to play baseball, but Ben felt a rain drop. He went home and studied for his test for school. Then he fell asleep and he had a dream about passing the Statue of Liberty and London. Also other places like the tower of Pisa and the Eiffel Tower. When he woke up Margaret was at the window saying, "it stopped raining and now we can play baseball."

I liked this book because I love all the adventures as he goes all around the earth. The illustrations were awesome because Chris Van Allsburg used pen technique. I like pen technique because it looks so cool! Ben reminds me of my brother Jared because he falls asleep when he studies.

I recommend this book because the ideas from the story are marvelous. If you like adventures you should totally read this book, Bens Dream. The kind of person that would like this book is someone who loves their dreams and daydreams.
