“Adam is living the dream – literally…..
There are two worlds which have always lived alongside each other, The Waking World and the Great Dream, Reverie. Adam is living a very ordinary life until he becomes aware of the link between the worlds and discovers that, as a Daydreamer, he is one of the very few people who can travel freely between the two and achieve impossible things.
You would think that being in control of your dreams would be fun. But when both worlds are threatened by a new and growing danger and when Nightmares not only roam the dream world but also start chasing him even while he is awake, Adam realises that he will need all of his new found powers just to survive the night.
With the help of a very unusual band of friends Adam now has to save both worlds, discover more about his past and, if he can, try and avoid yet another detention.”
The story of Freddy Kruger meets middle grade fiction. Released May 2018, The Boy Who Dreamt the World features Adam, a Daydreamer with the power to effortlessly move between The Waking World and the Great Dream, known as Reverie. As Nightmares threaten to destroy both worlds, Adam finds he is the only one with the power to save them.
Inspired by such fantastical authors as Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Ian Rankin and Andy Stanton, the author, Jethro Punter, began making up stories for his young children. After years of developing the stories at bedtime, Punter began the challenge of turning them into a book series. The result was The Daydreamer Chronicles.
