Fly by Night

Randall Jarrell. Farrar Straus Giroux, $4.95 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-374-42350-6

David is an ordinary boy, but at night he wakes up and remembers that he can fly, something he forgets during the day. He hovers near his parents' heads, seeing their dreams, and then soars through the countryside. In the morning, his mother's dream (to make pancakes) comes true. PW called the text ""lyrical, interspersed with rhymes and a long poem; this book is a rarity.'' (3up)
