About the Author
Lisa Papademetriou spends most of her time in the Dreamway, even when she's awake. She is the author of Apartment 1986 and A Tale of Highly Unusual Magic and lives in Massachusetts with her family.
"Papademetriou is equally adept at exploring the serious undercurrents to Callie's family drama and Cassius' difficulties, and readers stepping up from Frances O'Roark Dowell's engrossing friendship stories will find Apartment 1986 a comfortable place to hang out."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Praise for A TALE OF HIGHLY UNUSUAL MAGIC: "Lisa Papademetriou's prose and sense of place dazzles the ear and eye, while the adventure and mystery binds us from page to page. Now that's sleight of hand!"--Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor Winner Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor Winner Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor Winner

This is a book that leaves shimmers in the very air."--Kathi Appelt, New York Times bestselling author of The Underneath and Keeper
"A lively, heartwarming, sometimes perilous tale packed with creepy elements, appealing characters...and more than a few laughs."--Common Sense Media
"A rollicking adventure... Engaging and appealing, especially to those who have never quite fit in, this novel is sure to satisfy."--School Library Journal
"The writing [begs] to be read aloud... a fun book for middle-grade readers [that] will surely inspire them to read--and write--more.--Booklist
"Thrilling and funny, The Dreamway is a wild, magical ride!"--Grace Lin, author of The Year of the Dog
"With quirky secondary characters, a compelling plot, and room for a sequel, this is a strong purchase."--School Library Journal
"Strong family bonds drive the story, whose active characters, from a helpful librarian to a bureaucratic dragonfly, give it spark . . . Phantom Tollbooth fans will feel at home with the illogical destinations and quirky inhabitants of the Dreamway."
