'Engaging and action packed. I would have loved this book as a child!' - Marcus Rashford MBE

Erika has a BIG secret. She's a member of the Dream Defenders - a top-secret organisation that banishes your worries while you sleep!

And tonight they're on a mission to rescue Erika's best friend Silas from the clutches of the evil Glooms - creatures who want everyone in the dream world to look and think exactly the same way!

Can the Dream Defenders save Silas and help him to see that being a misfit can be a truly marvellous thing?

Discover more of the Dream Defenders adventures in Erika and the Angermare and Chanda and the Devious Doubt.

The Marcus Rashford Book Club is a collaboration between Marcus Rashford and Macmillan Children's Books, inspiring children to develop a love of reading and literacy as a life skill.

About the Author

Tom Percival writes and illustrates all sorts of children's books. He has produced cover illustrations for the Skulduggery Pleasant series, written and illustrated the Little Legends, the Dream Defenders series, as well as twelve picture books. His Big Bright Feelings picture book series includes the Kate Greenaway-nominated Ruby's Worry, as well as Perfectly Norman and Ravi's Roar, and has been translated into twenty one languages. The Invisible is a powerful picture book exploring poverty and those who are overlooked in our society. In 2020 he created the animation Goodbye Rainclouds, for BBC Children in Need to celebrate unsung heroes and launch their campaign. He lives in Gloucestershire with his partner and their two children.

Tom has been drawing since he's been able to hold a pencil, and making up stories for as long as he can remember, in fact, probably longer, especially as his memory is not what it once was. Basically, he's been making things up his whole life and he's not about to stop any time soon.

'Encouraging children to find joy in, and celebrate, their differences is so powerful in today's society. Tom inspires this mindset in the most fun, engaging, action-packed way. I would have loved to read this book as a child!'
- Marcus Rashford MBE

'An action-packed new illustrated fiction series for independent readers that explores anxiety - and how to conquer it -through rip-roaring adventure stories!'
- Little London, feature on children's books and anxiety

'An energetic adventure, with two-colour illustrations throughout and relatively short, manageable chapters for younger readers. Whilst the story is set in a fun alternative world, Percival manages to cleverly weave in themes of emotional care, as Erika's bad mood also attracts a dangerous Angermare and she has to learn to manage her own anger in order to defeat it.'
- BookTrust, Books We Love

'I'd happily have this on my bookshelf at school but I would also happily recommend this for any parent to read with or give to their child to read'
- Small Tomes Big Minds
