Fabulous!"Alexandra Vere, Harrogate"My son has just read the first three chapters and thinks it's brilliant - high praise since he has very decided opinions about what he reads."P. Uglow, Harrogate"I really liked the book. It was a bit scary when Dotty found herself in Uncle Winchester's private study. But most of the books I read are a bit scary so that was okay. I would read the other books in the series. Go Team Dotty!"Betty, age 7, Amazon"Enchanting, innocent and lovely with just the right amount of modern technology...a great read for a grown up 7 year old! She loved it...

They both laughed out loud at the wonderful descriptions of Gobby in the kitchen covered in flour (again) and the way she asked Kenny to remove Geoff! They cannot wait to find out what happens next."J. Johnson, Stallingborough...

dotty and the dream catchers Reviews
Eleven year old Dotty Parsons – a guardian of sweeps – is finally beginning boarding school but is hesitant to attend due to the horrific recurring dreams she has been having. The dream has her pursuing Sarah into the forest each night, while being tailed by the evil Mordecai. When the boarding school temporarily closes, Dotty discovers a shocking secret of betrayal between the Vagabond King and Madam Orla, before reluctantly seeking out the assistance of Mordecai, himself. That, and the fact that several girls have fallen into a coma while Dotty sleeps, makes solving this mystery a matter of urgency.I have been quite looking forward to the new instalment in the Dotty series for some time, and Emma Warner-Reed has certainly delivered on a wonderful, action-packed tale filled with fun, excitement, adventure and suspense. Great Uncle Winchester, or Winnie, as Dotty affectionately calls him, is just as formidable (yet loving) in Dotty and the Dream Catchers, and seems to know when problems have befallen young Dotty. Pip makes a welcome return as well, as do the many other favorites which readers of the Dotty series have come to know and love. I very much enjoyed reading Dotty and the Dream Catchers and wholeheartedly recommend it to be read by young readers aged 7-14 who are fans of light-hearted humor, mystery and secrets that are veiled by magic.- Rosie Malezer for Reader’s Favorite
Book 61 of my Goodreads ChallengeI was sent lucky enough to have been sent an ARC of this 3rd book in the series of Dotty and her adventures and I LOVED it. I was not able to read it before the release date as I had so much going on but I downloaded a copy on the day. It was so much easier reading as an ebook than a PDF. For a children's read all I can say is what powerful and dark imagery the author has conjured. I am a grown woman and yet I even managed to scare myself at times, as my house is old and creaks with the changing weather and temperatures. I felt like I could almost have been hiding in the woods with Dotty and Sarah.I really felt for Dotty having to go to boarding school after spending so much time in the big house and of course children can be really mean. Being re-introduced to the characters after some time away was wonderful. I love the 'floury hugs' from Mrs Gobbins yes that is the correct spelling floury as in baking flour which Mrs Gobbins is often covered in, plus she always has a deliciuos aroma of cooking surrounding her something that Dotty loves and I am clearly able to conjure from the text.I have to confess I even had a tear in my eye at one point for a scene in which the raggedy magpie Mordecai was involved. Plus there was a BIG shock near the end that I never, in the whole of my reading life would have imagined. But then it happened and it was over like it never existed so strange I had to go back and re-read the section in case I had imagined it.Well all I can say is that this is a highly recommended read. A book I think both boys and girls will enjoy (plus the young at heart like me). If you have not read Book One I urge you to go do so. Or go visit the author website and get some sneaky peeks at some of the series chapters. http://www.thedottyseries.com/
Award-winning MUST-READ series!!This award-winning series by Emma Warner-Reed is a MUST-READ for pre-teens, middle-grade students, and lovers of fantasy, mystery, magic and adventure! DOTTY and the Dream Catchers is Book #3 in the series. The book is outstanding in every way. It screams creativity, sparks the interest of both kids and adults, and keeps readers engaged and turning pages through to the end! To have the best reading experience, I highly recommend you start at the beginning with Book 1 and then work you way up through Books 2 and 3. I promise you will not be disappointed, and your kids are going to repeatedly thank you for introducing them to these awesome books! Being a teacher of 19 years, I can confidently say that this series would be a wonderful addition to any classroom or school library! Be prepared for some fun predictions and conversations about the characters and plot as you happily watch your kids (and yourself) find a renewed love of reading! Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)
Ah, here we are with Dotty again--if you read the previous books you know that Dotty's parents died and she lives in a mansion with her mostly absent Uncle. Gabby is always present and watching out for her. Dotty is a Guardian but she isn't sure what that means and where is the KEY? She has been dreaming about Sarah, dead, and seems to be inside the dream as Sarah tries to warn and help her. This year Uncle decides she must return to school and on the bus she falls asleep and is talking which makes the other girls decide she is a witch. As girls in her school fall asleep and can't wake up--what is the cause? She tells Uncle who is concerned but not until the school is closed and she comes home does he really understand. What happens to her best friend who comes to stay during achool vacation? What about the Ravens, the King and the fortune teller. This is a book you can't put down once you start reading it and I am hungry for the next installment!! I highly recommend this book.
This is the latest in the Dotty series, and was a thrilling read that I couldn't put down! With even more characters introduced - both in the "real" world as Dotty goes to school, and in the Sweeps' world too - the Dotty universe has really expanded and filled out beautifully. Full of action, adventure, mystery and fun, this book is excellently written and I'd highly recommend it for readers both young and old! Can't wait until the next instalment is released to find out what happens next, and if we'll ever find out who Uncle Winnie really is, what Dottys role in the world of the Sweeps is, and how it will all come together! NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
Another brilliant adventure. Dotty surely has a full and exciting life and it is great to be back amongst the pages of this excellent series. Emma Warner-Reed has the magick touch when it comes to children's literature, having read the previous books I was not disappointed in this latest tale. Slightly sad it has ended BUT I strongly suspect there is much more to come... a Carrion Curse to deal with perhaps or even a rescue mission into the fae for an old adversary. Whatever follows, I seem to have chosen wisely with this collection.
