Many books put you to sleep without meaning to. But here is a book specially created to send the reader on a long, restful voyage to slumberland and inspire beautiful and creative dreams along the way. It is a soothing bedtime companion, a portal that takes you from the busyness and distraction of the day into an ocean of calm.

Words from poets and writers set the mind on a path of discovery and reflection and a celebration of dreams and dreaming: “We all have forests on our minds. Forests unexplored, unending. Each one of us gets lost in the forest, every night, alone.” —Ursula K. Le Guin. “Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight.” —Oscar Wilde. "If we walk far enough,’ says Dorothy, ‘we shall sometime come to someplace." – L. Frank Baum.

Paired with them are lush, romantic images – forests at dusk, castles at the end of a winding road, lanterns swaying in the evening breeze, moonlight on new-fallen snow. The combined effect is like a mandala, something that pulls you in, stills thoughts, inspires mindfulness and dreaming. The book is organised into thematic sections, almost like a menu. When you close your eyes, what do you want to discover? New Worlds, Magic, Love, Mystery, or Peace? Open the book to any page, and may your dreams come true.
