About the Book

What would you do to rescue your most precious dream?

Susana’s best friend moved away, and now the only time Susana can see her is in her dreams. Until one night when the dream suddenly ends. The Dream Stealer has come, her grandmother says. The Dream Stealer does not want pretty silver earrings or dangly gold necklaces, diamonds or rubies. He wants dreams. He’s supposed to take only nightmares, but he’s grown scared of the monsters and phantoms. He’s been stealing good dreams instead. But he’s stolen from the wrong girl.

Susana is clever. She is fearless. And she wants her dream back.

Critical Praise

“This fanciful, original tale drawn from Mexican lore…will delight children, as will the narrator’s expertly modulated storyteller’s cadence. Sís’ black and- white illustrations include inventive design elements that reinforce the sense of real and imagined worlds overlapping.” — Booklist (starred review)

“The author breathes life into this Mexican-flavored world with a storytelling manner that’s teasing and intriguing by turns.” — Kirkus Reviews

“The tale twinkles with Fleischman’s signature crisp language and laugh-out-loud wordplay…[a] unique read that’s sure to give young chapter-book readers shivers, laughs, and satisfaction.” — School Library Journal
