‘The Dream Catcher’ by Caroline Twomey
Local West Cork author delves into the complexity of nightmares in newly published children’s picture book
‘The Dream Catcher’ was officially launched by local author Caroline Twomey in the award winning bookshop, Whyte Books, owned by Sheila Whyte in Main Street Schull.
‘The Dream Catcher’ is a beautifully illustrated picture book aimed at children aged between 3-8 years of age. The book deals with the issue of childhood nightmares and fears of the dark and the story is told from the viewpoint of a 6 year old boy, Jamie. Jamie’s fears are faced and conquered by himself and his stuffed friends, empowering the child to overcome his fears utilising imaginative and fun solutions. Inspired by her own son’s experience with nightmares, Caroline has received great success with the publication of her first picture book, ‘The Dream Catcher’.
‘The Dream Catcher’ retails for just €9 and is now available to purchase in local bookstores as well as online.
