MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

I liked this book. This book is about a girl named Sophie who can not dream, but her parents own a book shop and a dream shop. Sophie stole a dream and dreamed a monster to life! I don't want to go on and spoil so read the book! 

My favorite character was Sophie because she was exciting and brave. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10-12 years old.
