Book Description

Greedy thieves have stolen the children's dreams! And not just any dreams, mind you, but the Dreams of whom they are meant 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 hidden from the rest of the world. But the greedy Dream Robbers found them before committing the foul deed. Under the Robbers’ spell, the adult Elves have left the Village and don’t know their children’s Dreams have been stolen.

It's up to twelve, brave, Elf children to undertake a hazardous journey and try to get their Dreams back. They must hurry though. The seeds within every child on Earth, the seeds these special Dreams nourish, are hardening. And, alas, hardened seeds can never sprout.

If these young Elves stick together, they may have a chance, for they are not ordinary children. Within them, Nature's awesome powers bud: Thunder, Lightning, Rain, Snow and Fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't argue with my children - they LOVED it! May 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review consists of 2 parts: 1. My daughter's review (she's 9) - she gives it 5 stars; and 2. My review (the Mom) - I give it 4 stars. Clearly, it's a 4.5 stars! These are excerpts. For the full review, please visit us at our website.

DAUGHTER SAYS:

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 as others so that it makes it more realistic. I still liked all of the elves though and I liked how they were all different. I liked how the trees could eat people and drop twigs on them and make them do mean things and make them sleepy because that was cool.

I wish that there had been pictures because I wanted to see what everything looks like - even the elves, dwarfs, the sleigh, the trees, and other things. I also didn't like that the story doesn't really say how they rescued Devlari.

My bottom line:

I loved, loved this book and I'm asking my mom for the next book. I think boys and girls 6 and up will like this book.

MOM SAYS:

What I liked and disliked about it:

This was a bit of a difficult one for me. The author dives into the story right away which is both a good thing and a bad thing. On the one hand, it caught the children's interest right away (I read the entire book to both my kids). The downside is that there wasn't quite enough back story to help us understand the purpose of the children's quest. I'm still not sure whether I fully understand how the stream of dreams works and how it relates to the human world.

That being said, the series of adventures (e.g.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, fun fantasy story! February 16, 2012
A Kid's Review
Format:Kindle Edition
Review by This Kid Reviews Books! Find me on the web!!

"As but a few may know, the oldest legends say that some people on this Earth today came from Elves. Those legends also say some people came from Dwarfs. Nobody really knows about such things."

There is something very wrong because children everywhere have stopped dreaming! When the stream of dreams, the stream of magic waters that allowed children to dream, dried up it became impossible for children to dream. Twelve Nature Elf children decide they have to make things right. With their parents under the spell of evil dwarves, the children take a long, hard journey to find why the stream was blocked and get it flowing again. In the little group there were Nature Elves of all kind, like Fire Elves, Forest Elves and Sky elves. During their mission they have to deal with all kinds of dangers, like evil trees, crows, and sinister dwarves that want to stop them! They get help along the way from the nice fairies from the Fairy Kingdom! When they find what's the matter with the stream fixing it isn't as easy as they thought...

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun fantasy/adventure book. "Dream Robbers" is a great story and Mr. Scott made a pretty awesome world for it to take place in. I thought the plot idea was really unique, it's kind of a fairy tale for older kids. The elf children characters in the book were great, all 12 of them! I really liked the shape-shifter character Easy Longstep because he was there to help them and gave them advice, some about feelings and actions (which we could use in real life). He also warned them about dangers on the journey ahead of them and showed from time to time to help them. The book was a clean read and I would recommend it to kids ages 8+. The only thing I would change about the book is the cover art, I didn't care for it. The characters were cute but hard to see.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enchanting book for all readers! January 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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 their stream and dreams back, and along the way they encounter fairies, evil trees, mean dwarves, and a shape-shifting ally.

Scott's inventive imagination is apparent throughout this book. Dream Robbers offers an original and excitingly magical story. I was captivated from beginning to end and thoroughly enjoyed this story.

This book has all the qualities I look for in a fantasy (magic, whimsy, adventure), but also reads like a fairytale. The world Scott creates is vivid and believable, even in its whimsy and magic. The story is nicely paced and, even though it's a short read at only 116 pages, it never felt rushed nor did it feel as though it were lacking anything. This book has a lot of amusing humor, rousing action and surprising depth.

Dream Robbers has a wonderful cast of engaging characters. The group of 12 elves is made up of characters with charming names like Boomer (Thunder Elf), Ashley Embereyes (Fire Elf), Wetina Rainbo (Water Elf), Sparklun (Lighting Elf) and many more. I was simply enchanted by these elves and loved that they all had distinct and interesting personalities. Scott definitely offers readers a dynamic group of main characters, which is especially important when trying to hold the attention of young readers.

I think younger and older readers alike will enjoy this book.

More About the Author

RC Scott, like everybody else, is a mystery. The images that evolve into stories come through that mystery.

All well and good, but as one considering to share in those adventures, you might be more interested in the parts that get tapped to refine the stories.

To that end RC is a parent, teacher, college graduate (BA psychology, cum laude), cartoonist, musician, meditator and world traveler.

With the exciting adventures of the Sky Elves, in addition to encouraging kids to read, RC hopes to inspire them to become the most wonderful people they can become. It's a good thought and certainly deserves some exploration, wouldn't you agree?
