2.8 Christopher Fry, Djomi Dream Child (2004)

This story was too complicated for my two and a half year old. It's about a dream child who floats downstream towards the coast of Maningrida in Arnhem Land. It starts out as a dream vision that an old man has and then turns into the story of the girl in the dream realm and then in the natural world after she is born. That's quite a lot of meta and I'd say the readers would need to be five to seven for it to make sense.

She did request it again and got more out of it when I simplified the story and just related it to the pictures. She liked the one of the dream children in the pool. As she said several times, they were happy because this was where they belonged.
