Ten-year-old Peter Fortune has a vivid imagination. He understands just how it would feet to be a cat slinking around on soft paws, purring in the sun. He's experienced the terror and the excitement of being chased by evil dolts bent on vengeance. And he's felt the thrill of using a vanishing cream that can actually make people disappear.
Peter's imagination takes him to extraordinary places. But when it takes him to the place where reality and daydreams meet, has it finally taken him too far?1995 Notable Trade Books in the Language Arts (NCTE)
From the Inside Flap: A classic from one of our greatest storytellers underlines Doubleday Canada's commitment to YA fiction, in a handsome new edition that will appeal to young readers of all ages.
In these seven exquisite, interlinked episodes, grown-up Peter Fortune reveals the secret journeys, metamorphoses, and adventures of his childhood.
Living somewhere between dream and reality, Peter experiences fantastical transformations: he swaps bodies with the family cat and a cranky infant, battles a very bad doll who comes to life to seek revenge, and discovers in a kitchen drawer some vanishing cream that actually makes people vanish. In the final story, he wakes up as an eleven-year-old inside a grown-up's body, and embarks on the truly fantastic adventure of falling in love. Moving, dreamlike, and extraordinary, The Daydreamer is a celebration of imagination and fantasy.
