Have you ever met a dream thief?

Fingers and the 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.

Fingers and the Dream Thief

Opening the Dream Bottle

Mr. Snude was a wealthy steampunk photographer and a benefactor of the local orphanage in New Babbage. However, his generous intentions hid a darker side to his personality: he would use the modified posing stands in his photographic studio to steal dreams from his young victims. He relished the consumption of dreams from the local orphans: children’s imaginations are always such fertile and magical places.

It wasn’t until a new orphan was introduced that Mr. Snude’s plans started to go awry. Fingers, a shoeshine boy rescued from the streets, began to investigate the strange bland behaviour of his new friends and soon discovered the sinister secret behind the photographic studio.

How can Fingers save his friends from a life devoid of dreams and teach Mr. Snude a lesson that he will never forget?

This delightful ebook is packed with an illustration on every page and is perfect for sharing your love of literature with the younger members of your family.
