Mimo’s life takes a turn for the better when he is sold to the Lord of Nightmares, a strange man who roams the land to sell dreams to rich and poor alike. No more a street urchin, Mimo earns easy money, and has plenty of food, fancy clothes, and exciting travel… all because of magic. People come from everywhere just to share in this dream world for a moment. Mimo can’t wait until he too has earned enough money to make his dreams come true. The story reads well, with short chapters that pile on the pace. The menacing illustrations contrast starkly with the text’s description of a magical wonderland and create a dark sense of foreboding.
