Welcome to Dreamsville – where happy dreams are made!
Mayor Biggs, the charismatic and courageous mayor of Dreamsville has a dream: to rid childhood of nightmares and to make the children of Dreamsville happy, healthy and well-balanced.
Mayor Biggs has introduced Dreamsville to the Dream Machine, a machine that broadcasts only the sweetest dreams to the children of Dreamsville while they sleep. He has passed new laws requiring all parents to ensure their children sleep with a dream transmitter each night and he has built a police force, the Dream Police, who patrol the town to see that the Dream Laws are obeyed. Dreamsville has become a happier place because of it.
One family, who have just moved to town are not feeling at all at ease. Their daughter Emily is finding it difficult to fit in; she wears different clothes, plays different games, writes different stories and does not own a Dream Machine. To Emily, Dreamsville does not seem a happy place.
Is there something more sinister going on in the town? Is there something afoot with the Mayor’s plans?
One night the town discovers the high price they must pay for a happy childhood when the dream machines malfunction. Emily and the children from her class must overcome their differences to save the ideals of Dreamsville and a happy, carefree childhood. In the end friendship along with a rather hip Grandma triumph over all!
The Ice Demon is set in an isolated village in the far north of Norway. From a time before anyone can remember the village has been under the curse of an evil Ice Demon. The curse brings misfortune and unhappiness to the villagers and the Ice Demon kidnaps the children if they are out after dark. The villagers believe that it is because of this curse that Christmas has never been a joyous celebration. The story follows Maya, a brave, young girl from the village, and her journey in search of her brother Olaf who has been captured by the Ice Demon. Will Maya be successful in her quest? Will the Ice Demon’s heart be melted and her curse finally broken?
