Once upon a time in Mexico our plucky young heroine, Susana, is awoke from her dream by a Dream Stealer before she has a chance to see her best friend safe at the conclusion of her dream. Determined to finish the dream and see all made well, she journeys to the Dream Stealer's castle where she must locate her dream among all the stolen dreams flying around in the form of fire flies. In addition to dealing with the cranky Dream Stealer, she must use her wit and courage to take on a two-headed giant loosed from a nightmare.

Susana is sweet, clever and brave. Would make a nice read aloud, maybe for 6- 8ish old people or an early chapter book.

Illustrations by the ever fabulous Peter Sis.
