The Book of Stolen Dreams by David Farr

From the first page, The Book of Stolen Dreams pulls the reader right into mystery and adventure. There is a classic feeling to this story – a weightiness of something you just know is going to be epic.

Brother and sister, Robert and Rachel Klein, are left orphaned in Krasnia – a city devastated by the regime of a brutal dictator. Their mother has died and their father arrested for stealing the most precious of books – The Book of Stolen Dreams. What the authorities don’t realise is that the children have the book. They must figure out what to do with it and how to rebuild their world.

Secret codes, a resistance group, assassination plans and undercover disguises create a world of risk and intrigue. As Rachel and Robert must make decisions about who to trust and learn the book contains more secrets and more power than they ever realised.

The Book of Stolen Dreams is the perfect challenge for those children who are looking for something more and a wonderful family or class read aloud. I’m looking forward to cuddling up with my own children on dark autumn evenings to share this amazing story.

Thank you to Usborne Publishing for this fantastic book!
