Title: The Dream Stealer

A plucky Mexican girl tries to recover her dream from the Dream Stealer who takes her to his castle where countless dreams and even more adventures await.
There is a bandit who comes in the night. He does not want pretty silver earrings or dangly gold necklaces, not diamonds or rubies.
What does he want?
Listen, I will tell you.
He wants dreams.
He is supposed to take only nightmares—the dreams of monsters and phantoms—but he’s grown scared. He’s been taking the good dreams instead.
But one night he steals from the wrong girl.
Susana is clever. She is wily. She is brave.
And she wants her dream back.
