Dreams of Near and Far - Martin Widmark & Emilia Dziubak

Earn 12 Loyalty Points


A story of grief and ultimately finding hope, with lyrical prose and a happy ending, perfect for bedtime reading. The interconnected stories of two very different children, told from alternating viewpoints, carry a heart-warming message about finding where you belong.

Noah and Mia live far, far away from each other, but look out upon the same great sea. In the evening, Noah and his dog Gus watch the sun softly slip beneath the waves; in the morning, Mia and her cat Olive watch from the cliffs as it rises.

Noah is heartbroken when his old dog Gus dies. He slips into dreams, searching for his loyal friend, but instead finds something unexpected. Mia has no home, only her cat Olive. So when Olive sets off travelling, Mia follows her on an unexpected journey.

Will Mia and Noah find all they've dreamt of?

Poignant and uplifting, Martin Widmark's story of finding hope and a home is accompanied by stunning illustrations from Emilia Dziubak.
