If someone asked you to describe what happens in the book, what would you say?
Vera enters a writing competition and when she tries to tell everyone in the Daydream Club they have to close their eyes so she won’t be worried and her story becomes real in the Storyland. The story controls what you think, see and hear. A penguin in the dream hands her this pebble and tells her what to do in tricky situations.

What is the Daydream Club?
It is the club that Vera, Max and Harry make after school to help each other with homework and have a chat.
