Randall’s Dream Wizard series takes readers on adventures that are led by a charming fellow named Sandy and his Border Collie dogs.

In this book, Sandy is kidnapped and his trusty dog is front stage as Sandy has to dream his escape. The third is about Sandy’s adventure with pirates and discovering how to fly and find treasure.
Woven through each story are dream meetings with other kids at Knight School where Reed Sundance has words of wisdom about how to change dreams.

An adult who reads the story to younger children as a bedtime story will find themselves rereading it and using the ideas to change their own nightmares. In this era there are lots of nightmares.
