Everyone needs dreams ...

Twins Nina and Alex Popadopolus live on the beautiful island of Naxos. Their lives are simply happy, until their blind grandfather senses something terrible is coming.

The islanders need a plan to save their village and themselves, they need a dream. Could Alex’s ice-cream invention really be the answer?

Nina and Alex just have to make Papa, and all the others, believe in their dreams … or one by one the lights will go out and the village will die.

Gentle and easy to read with a timeless, feel-good quality, this delightful new story by an award-winning author is suitable for boys and girls.
