"Sleepbending" is a comic book that takes place in Book Two: Earth, originally released by Nickelodeon Magazine in September 2006[1] and later released by Dark Horse Comics in The Lost Adventures.


While the members of Team Avatar lie sleeping at a forest campsite, Aang's dream inadvertently causes trouble for his friends.


Aang dreams he is riding atop a flying fishopotamus.

Aang, in a deep slumber late at night, mutters to himself about a dream he is having, in which he is trying to tame a wild flying fishopotamus. Everyone else in Team Avatar startles awake when Aang bends a pillar of rock from the ground near them. Just as suddenly, Aang levitates from his reclining position with airbending, creating waves of wind through the forest. Although Katara wants Sokka to wake up Aang, her brother replies in sarcastic protest.

Aang continues to dream, while in a collaborative effort to stop their friend from causing further destruction, Katara, Sokka, and Toph devise a plan where they will use their talents to awaken Aang. This backfires, however, when the wind blows their weapons away. Their misdirected actions evoke an avalanche from a nearby mountain, forcing them to run away as fast as they can. When they arrive back at the campsite, a pebble wakes Aang from his sleep; the first thing he mentions is the "awesome" dream he had, with Toph replying that it must have been.
