Greedy thieves have stolen the children's dreams! And not just any dreams, mind you, but the Dreams of whom they are to become. With this loss children everywhere are becoming cross, and more misbehaved by the day. They are driving their parents mad.

Only the rarest of Elves can do anything about it. These small, scarcely seen, Nature Elves in their remote Gypsy Village are

This review was originally posted on The Oaken Bookcase on May 3, 2012.

This delightful story is about twelve elf children, each with special powers from natural sources such as fire, snow, storm and water. They set off on a journey together to try to discover why the stream near their village has stopped flowing. They must get it to flow, so that children will Dream again.

The story starts rather abruptly with only a short prologue to explain what has happened. The reader is thrown into the story

A group of 12 young elves go on a quest to find out why the stream that carries their dreams is no longer flowing. They gain strength from each and learn to trust their instincts as they battle for the return of their dreams.

There are definitely some cute moments. Whenever I read that the young elves giggled I kinda giggled inside as well. Some of the elves were so young and playful and some were not. What kept my attention was when the elves would get stuck in the magical curses and their perso

What I liked and disliked about it:

I liked the story of the book. I really liked how there were different kinds of magical creatures like dwarfs, fairies, and elves and that they could do magical things. I liked that a few of the elves were not as nice

RC Scott’s Dream Robbers turned out to be such a surprising little gem! Wondrously whimsical and fantastically fun, I found this book to be a delightful read.

In Dream Robbers we are introduced to 12 Nature Elf children who have set out on a grand adventure. The adults in their Gypsy Village have been tricked to leave, their magical stream has dried up and with it their dreams have disappeared. So the 12 little elvesies set out to bring thei

This book has an intriguing premise, great ideas and even creatures that are named with an eye to how they look and behave: a wild boar-like creature called a Hogznort. With twelve elves, all possessing special powers to manipulate the natural world, a fantastical world, and jumping right into the action – this is not a book for the faint of heart. BUT, if you are patient, you will be rewarded with an engaging adventure: where elves feel more like the children in your class, full of their own pe ...more

We get transformed to the world of elves, dwarves, fairies, even a leprechaun or two... we're not in the world we know.

The village of elves are on a mission to see why the Stream of Dreams has dried up. Its effecting everyone. Without dreams, it makes everyone grumpy, sad, not able to become their full selves. 12 brave elves set out on an adventure.

We get to see the different elves, a snow elf, a forest elf, a lightening elf... & my favorite, the twins, which are the smallest & sky elves.

Greedy Dream Robbers have damned the river of dreams causing children the world over to stop dreaming. These aren’t just any ol’ dreams though. They’re the dreams of who the children will become and if the children don’t dream them…well, it’s not a good thing. Nature Elves are the only ones who can fix this problem, but the adults Elves in the Gypsy Village have been tricked and sent off on a false trail. It’s up to 12 of

This was a great read for me! I'm sure my son will love to read it too! I though there were a lot of life lessons to be learned through these elf children's adventures! Twice I even stopped and read them to my husband, because I was in complete agreement! Especially the one where he says: "Are the youth so poor that they can't afford to pay respect for their elders?" Awesome! I liked the relationships between the elves, all friends and like family, even though they were completely different! I a ...more
