Gulp. 26th February 2015 is finally here. Time to be fearless because my debut MG book, THE DREAMSNATCHER, is out in the wild!

*grins like a maniac*
*does a happy bum wiggle dance*

I’ve got to hand it to Agnes from Despicable Me though for summing up the book in three GIFs…

12-year-old gypsy girl Moll: ‘Come and get me you big fat scary Dreamsnatcher.’
Come and get me


12-year-old gypsy girl Moll: ‘Yeah, I’m talking to you, Skull!’ Pause. ‘Eeeeeeeek you’re mean and scary.’
Agnes fear


12-year-old gypsy girl Moll: ‘Ha! But I’ve got a wildcat and I love him so much! He’s so fluffy!’ Turns to Gryff, the wildcat. ‘You better stay and help me against the Dreamsnatcher, okay?’
I love my unicorn


THE DREAMSNATCHER by Abi Elphinstone
Twelve-year-old Molly Pecksniff wakes one night in the middle of the forest, lured there by a recurring nightmare – the one with the drums and the rattles and the masks. The Dreamsnatcher is waiting. He has already taken her dreams and now he wants her life. Because Moll is more important than she knows…The Oracle Bones foretold that she and Gryff, a wildcat that has always been by her side, are the only ones who can fight back against the Dreamsnatcher’s dark magic. Suddenly everything is at stake, and Moll is drawn into a world full of secrets, magic and adventure. Perfect for fans of J.K. Rowling, Michelle Harrison and Eva Ibbotson.

Order on:

When she’s not zooming around Burma on a motorbike or hang-gliding over Rio de Janeiro, Abi Elphinstone can be found in London, in her writing hut at the bottom of the garden. Her debut MG children’s book, THE DREAMSNATCHER, has been described as ‘Pullman-esque’ and follows gypsy girl, Moll, and her wildcat as they fight back against a witchdoctor’s dark magic. It will be published by Simon & Schuster on 26th February 2015.
