Franklin has the strangest dreams.
He had a recurring theme in his dreams where a man showed up, wrecking his bedroom and making his room into something else all together where trains and other transportation roared through. When the people got to where they were going things were put back to normal for a while...
... until another dream with that same man came into his head again. Each time something went through his room he saw someone familiar and in the end he figured out something important about the dreams.
I took Dream and Myth in College and know from that and my further studies into dreams that this is common with many people who remember their dreams. There is a recurring theme until the main discovery is made about why that dream exists and then the dreams are done. Both of my children remember their dreams and found this book fascinating.
