Have you ever met a dream thief?
Edward Croydon (also known as “Fingers”) was abandoned by his uncaring parents and left on the streets of New Babbage. Fate forced him to work in order to survive, shining shoes and picking the pockets of rich passers-by. Finally, the kindness of one sympathetic gentleman encouraged Fingers to consider moving into the local orphanage, financed by the town’s wealthy photographer: Mr. Snude. Fingers found that the children of the home were very well-cared for and that they were allowed to play with as many toys as they could wish for. The orphanage looked like a paradise for homeless street children! However, despite all of this, Finger discovered that the children lacked imagination and he soon discovered that this children’s home had a dark and dreadful secret: Mr. Snude was a dream thief!
Discover how Fingers saved the children from a life devoid of dreams and how he was able to teach Mr. Snude a lesson that he would never forget.

Another cool story.
A simple and straightforward children’s story, “Fingers and the Dream Thief” is an interesting balance between 3D digital art and storytelling since all descriptions are expressed by the illustrations, with little writing covering the actions. Fingers is an orphan child making a living in a steampunk city by polishing rich men’s shoes and pickpocketing them every now and then. One day, he is told about a lovely local orphanage. There, all children are encouraged to play all day long. But the place hides a dark secret and Fingers needs to save his new friends. I would say it is a bit too short (a few minutes reading), but the fact that there are more books with Finger’s adventures makes up for this. The illustrations and simple writing make it great for children beginning to read.
