The Daydreamer

Illustrated by Anthony Browne, THE DAYDREAMER takes the reader out of reality and into the dream world of 10 year old Peter Fortune.

Peter Fortune is a daydreamer. He's a quiet ten year old who can't help himself from dropping out of reality and into the amazing world of his vivid imagination. His daydreams are fantastic and fascinating - only in the bizarre and disturbing world of dreams can he swop bodies with the family cat and his baby cousin, Kenneth, or wipe out his entire family with vanishing cream.
