Written by the brilliant children's author Catherine Storr, and later made into the 1988 film Paperhouse, Marianne Dreams is a dark children's story about a young girl, who is suffering with long-term illness, who escapes her reality by drawing pictures and living through her pictures in her dreams.

Marianne is bored, having to suffer a bed-ridden future due to illness. Trying to make the most of the long hours of solitude, Marianne picks up a pencil and begins to draw. A house. A garden. A boy at the window. That night, she has a dream and is transported to the world of her picture and begins to explore and meets the boy from her picture, Mark. But they are not alone...

As time goes on, and Marianne's illness progresses, she begins to spend more and more time in her dream world, spending her waking hours making changes to the picture to improve her alternate reality. But the more changes she makes, the more negative her world becomes...

A perfect book for fans of 2002's Coraline by Neil Gaiman, Marianne Dreams is a classic that is sure to engross a new generation of readers aged 8 and above.

This book has been hand-picked for the Book People's FaberShop, in partnership with Faber & Faber.
