Tom Thorneval: Dream Merchant Extraordinaire by Addison - OPTIONAL

Addison, C.E. Tom Thorneval: Dream Merchant Extraordinaire, 222 p. Wivern Digital Limited, 2015.  

Content: G

Tom, a young half fairy, has been studying with DreamMaster HooDoo, but instead of becoming a DreamMaster himself, he has figured out how to package dreams for others and sets off to find the Goblin Fair in order to sell his dreams and earn enough money to claim his bride.  His trip to the Goblin Fair is fraught with distractions and dangers, especially as he tries to make his way through the Deadly Swamp, where he is confounded by a son of Pan who is in league with the evil Goad Toad who is some how also connected to dreaming.  

Tom Thorneval has potential, with mystery, danger, and a little romantic twist.  Unfortunately it doesn’t quite flow.
