Publisher Description

From the two-time Newbery Award winning author of Number the Stars and The Giver, comes a novel about how even the smallest of dreams can break through the darkest of nights.
 
Littlest One is a tiny creature slowly learning her job of giving dreams to humans. Each night she and her teacher, Thin Elderly, visit an old woman’s home where she softly touches beloved objects, gathering happy memories, and drops of old scents and sounds. Littlest One pieces these bits together and presents them to her sleeping human in the form of pleasant dreams. But the dreaded Sinisteeds, dark fearsome creatures that plague their victims with nightmares, are always at work against the dreamgivers. When the old woman takes in John, an angry foster child with a troubled past, the Sinisteeds go after him with their horrifying nightmares. Can Littlest One, and her touch light as gossamer, protect John’s heart and soul from the nightmare of his dark past?

Gossamer- good for an audiobook buy!

This was a great book that reached out to many kids in my class. It was difficult for them to understand at first, but once they put all of the pieces together they loved it. Great audio book!!

Lios Lowry Fan!!!

I have read most of Lois Lowry's books. I just love her writing style . She has a unique way of pulling the reader in and getting you so hooked that you don't want to stop reading the book until it's finished.I know I'm buying this one . If I could I'd rate it a 10 just from listening to the preview.
