The Book of Stolen Dreams by David Farr

This is a magical adventure story about a quiet, unassuming family, the Kleins, who also happen to be very good, law-abiding citizens. The father, Felix Klein, works as a librarian and is responsible for the protection of rare books at the public library.

The family live in a society under the strict control of President Charles Malstain, a devious and cruel leader who dislikes children and passed laws to keep children hidden behind closed doors so they would not be seen roaming outside. In fact, outdoor play is strictly and completely prohibited!

When Felix learns that the President’s censorship committee plans to steal one of the library’s rare books – the Book of Stolen Dreams – he enlists the help of his children, Rachel and Robert, in a brazen midnight heist to break into the library, rescue the book and deliver it to a secret society for protection. Felix knows that disaster will follow if the book were to fall into nefarious hands.

This quest sets the children on a dangerous path, surrounded by enemies and informers who can’t be trusted, and other morally challenged adults who really should be more trustworthy and helpful. Suffice to say, the moral compass of this story is guided by its young heroes. For ages 9+.
