Sophie loves the hidden shop below her parents’ bookstore, where dreams are secretly bought and sold. Sophie is fascinated by dreams – from good dreams to nightmares – because she has never had a single dream of her own.
When the dream shop is robbed and her parents go missing, Sophie must discover the truth to save them. Together with her best friend – a wisecracking loyal monster named Monster – she must decide whom to trust with her family’s secrets.
I want the Dreamcatcher Bookshop to be a real place. Not only do they sell books, they sell cupcakes. Those are my two favorite things. You can sit and read a book while eating a cupcake. How great is that?!
I feel like this book could be made into a Disney/Pixar movie. It’s sweet but heart wrenching at the same time.
This book features another one of my favorite things: Dreams. Dreams are great. This story has every sort of dream you can think of and a few you wouldn’t think of.
With that I will now tell you about my top 3 dreams:
Dream #1: I’m driving down the street very badly, running into stuff and people. And my Dad is running behind me yelling, “YOU’RE GOOD! YOU’RE GOOD!”
Dream #2: I’m flying at the beach. I’ve maybe had three different flying dreams but this is the one I remember the most vividly. When you have a flying dream it feels so real that when you wake up you feel like you can really fly. But you never can.
Dream #3: I’m in a warehouse and I’m eating ice cream out of industrial sized barrels. I’m scooping it into my mouth with my hands. And somehow I get my hands on a cookie the size of a Frisbee and I use the cookie to scoop up some ice cream and somehow am able to stuff the whole cookie in my mouth. BEST DREAM EVER!
If you have had any amazing, interesting, or just plain weird dreams, post a comment about your dream below.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves dreams, even the scary ones.
