Waterstones Says

The captivating and delightfully whimsical story of a department that sells all manner of dreams, Miye Lee's enchanting debut is perfect reading for fans of Before The Coffee Gets Cold.

In a mysterious town that lies hidden in our collective subconscious, there's a quaint little store where all kinds of dreams are sold ...

Day and night, visitors both human and animal from all over the world shuffle in sleepily in their pyjamas, lining up to purchase their latest adventure. Each floor in the department store sells a special kind of dream, including nostalgic dreams about your childhood, trips you've taken, and delicious food you've eaten, as well as nightmares and more mysterious dreams.

In DallerGut Dream Department Store we meet Penny an enthusiastic new hire; DallerGut, the flamboyant owner of the department store; Mrs. Weather, Penny's reliable confidante; Vigo Myers, an employee in the mystery department as well as a cast of curious, funny and strange clientele who regularly visit the store. When one of the most coveted and expensive dreams gets stolen during Penny's first week, we follow along with her as she tries to uncover the workings of this wonderfully whimsical world.

A captivating story that will leave a lingering magical feeling in readers' minds, this is the first book in a bestselling duology for anyone exhausted from the reality of their daily life.
