Eight-year-old Susana is lonely, ever since she and her best friend Consuelo Louisa had a fight, then Consuelo Louisa moved away. She isn't even sure her former buddy wants to remember her. But Susana is also brave and energetic and has too many things to do to waste time sleeping. When she finally goes to bed one night, little does she know that a strange creature is impatiently waiting for her to
fall asleep. As she slumbers, Susana is delighted by a dream in which she and Consuelo Louisa spend a marvelous day together until her friend is thrown from the horse she is riding, and the dream vanishes! Susana awakens in shock and anger. What happened to the rest of the dream? Is Consuelo Louisa really in danger? The next day, Susana tells her parents and grandmother about her night's experiences, and learns about the Dream Stealer. Determined to get her dream back and find out what happened to her friend, Susana hatches a bold plan to confront the creature. This new novel by a master is vintage Fleischman--entertaining, full of adventure, peopled with delightful characters, and galloping toward a satisfying conclusion. 89 pages.
