Dreamgiver 7-9

VIEW IN EDSHED

10 Lessons

Silently, a group of orphans sleep in an orphanage.
Quietly, the window shutters open and in crawls a mysterious creature.  
He doesn't look too friendly at first but we soon see what his plan is.

This is the Dreamgiver and by cracking his dream eggs he makes sure the children’s' nights are pleasurable.  He creates the dreams by cracking the eggs onto stories, posters and ballet shoes. But what will happen if an egg is accidentally spilt on something not so nice?   Well that is what happens.....

A 'dream egg' is knocked off the bed and onto a 'shadow serpent,'  this is surely going to turn into a nightmare for one of the unlucky children.
