Though the story is not without Peter Pan–ish charm, the shift from imaginary to real is abrupt, even puzzling. In comparison with other fanciful journeys, this has moderate appeal...

Synopsis

Cleo is sad. She always has to hurry. To the bus. To school. She often feels lonely. But one day she’ll go far away, to a place where she defeats sea monsters and where clouds taste like whipped cream. Only her cat will come with her. But suddenly there is a boy….

A touching story about a girl who isn’t as alone as she thought she was. For daydreamers aged 5 and up.
