Everybody dreams. That's the problem. Good dreams are sweet. Bad dreams are scary, but what happens if the worst sort of nightmares take over?

Zac Wonder is about to find out. On the stroke of midnight, he is plunged into an extraordinary world on the other side of sleep.

Is he still dreaming? Has he gone nuts? Or, is he really meant to save us all from vampires, werewolves and the dream pirates who threaten to keep us awake forever.

Review by

The book is geared to 9-12 year olds and was shortlisted for the 2011 Scottish Children's Book Awards. Zac has very realistic nightmares. One night he follows his grandmother into a pond and ends up in Nocturne, where the Knights are coming together to fight off the Dream Pirates, who are threatening not only the dreamworld, but also the wakelings. - those of us on the other side. The book treads some familiar territory and throws a bit of everything in (magic! vampires! werewolves! goblins! trolls!), but in the end it is fun, fast-paced, and a page-turner. For anyone who can still remember a particularly vivid nightmare from childhood, this book provides a fantasy otherworld possibility for what is really going on.
