Robert Ingpen is a supremely talented Australian illustrator. The Dreamkeeper is a tale he has written especially for his granddaughter, Alice Elisabeth. Luckily for those of us without artistic grandfathers, the story has been published for everyone to read!
Nobody has seen the Dreamkeeper but we do know that he wears old fashioned clothes hung with charms and lures for catching mischievous creatures that have escaped from The Great Dreamtree. Once he captures the creatures, he returns them to the tree so they can't do any harm in the space between what is really happening and what you imagine might happen. Gorgeous!
