Editorial Reviews

It's Philomena's eighth birthday, and she's a little bit disappointed with her gift, until she realizes it's a magic pen that allows her daydreams - and she has a lot of them! - to become real. She may even be able to use it to take over her entire class!

Ian Bone's story is delightfully imaginative, with an irresistible protagonist, and her charm is made apparent by Melissa Chambers, who performs with a bounding whimsy. It's a top-notch recording all the way through, replete with fun sound effects and a bouncy musical soundtrack, providing all-around entertainment for young children.

Publisher's Summary

The first book in a witty and magical new series from acclaimed childrens author Ian Bone.

Hi, I'm Philomena Wonderpen. My best friend, George, sometimes calls me Philomena Daydreamer. I looove daydreams. Imagine if you could draw your dreams with a magic pen. What would you draw? A beautiful black horse? A magic carpet? Or even better, would you make yourself the teacher? Then you could boss the whole class! If only daydreams could come true...

A nice story and great presentation

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My daughters (5 and 7) loved this story and have listened to it several times already. The quality of the performance is such that it is even bareable for adults to cope with multiple listens.
