George was a day child. He loved to rollick and romp in the sunshine, but no matter how hard he played in the day, sleep never came easily at night. Until his Gran introduced him to the Dream Bird.

“The Dream Bird had large, kind eyes. She was a tall as a flamingo and as graceful as a butterfly. Her feathers were gold and scarlet and her long, curved tail shimmered in the light”. When George meets the Dream Bird his sleep problems are solved.
