Julia is nine, and she lives in two very different worlds. One is the real world, the one in which she is a normal, everyday child who lives with her normal, everyday mother, father, and loving grandparents, Nana and Pawpaw. The other is the life she lives in her dreams, in which the cast of characters is the same-with one huge exception. In Julia's dreams, she and Nana encounter a baby deer that can talk. Not only that, but Baby Deer's mother and father can also talk! As they learn more about the talking Deer family, they discover that Baby Deer was born with clubbed hooves and will need an operation if he's ever going to run and play like the other deer. The Dreamer is the touching story of a young girl who sometimes has trouble distinguishing between reality and the world of her dreams as she helps Baby Deer learn to believe in himself. It's a story that will challenge every young person's concept of reality-and make them wonder if their own dream worlds might be just as real.
