Sarah K. Lilythe and her brother, Patrick, are going to stay with their grandparents for the weekend while their parents are away. On the first evening of their visit, the children see a mysterious blue lamp on the patio.
Their grandfather explains it’s a fairy lantern—a link between two magical worlds. But it only works when someone has fallen asleep and comes under the spell of the dream fairies. He tells them all about the dream fairies and their curious, fantastical dream world, with its wizards, princesses, wisdom keepers, great ladies, heroes, tricksters, and little devils. Then Grandpa teaches them the secret of how to access the magic of their inner selves by flying with the fairies of their dreams, allowing them to find a path to a different side of themselves.
In this story, two children learn about a special lantern that is a door into the magical world of the dream fairies. When they enter the door, what will they discover on the other side?
