Dream World Defenders by Kathleen J. Shields is a story filled with adventure, fantasy, and whimsy, and will pull readers into the world of six kids - Blake, Justin, Kaylee, Owen, Parker, and Ryan - who find themselves in the dream world. They find themselves having nightmares of being chased, coming to class in their underwear, and falling. This keeps them awake at night and they want to know how to control their dreams. Ryan knows how to control his dreams as his mother had taught him, and now it rests on his shoulders to teach the others how to handle their nightmarish dreams. Will he succeed in helping the other five or will they get trapped in their dreams and never wake up?

The theme is original and the dreams these kids experience are magical and will transport readers to another dimension, making them imagine and become more creative in their thinking. The six kids are adorable, real, and relatable, and young readers can connect well with them and their problems. The story takes a different turn when the kids get out of their dream world with the help of Ryan, and find themselves being faced by other problems. The plot is not only adventurous, but also challenging, and has layers to it that will keep readers glued to the book till the very end. The author’s narration is descriptive, colorful, and vivid, and that makes the scenes and characters come alive in front of readers’ eyes.
