After her parents separate, little Betty is finding it hard to sleep. There is only an empty, scary space left where her colourful dreams used to be. And even though mum and dad are trying their best to help their little girl, the space cannot be filled with bedtime stories, or toys or sweet-tasting medicine. It’s Betty’s older brother, Bart, who discovers the truth. Thieves have stolen Betty’s dreams – so the siblings must set out on a dangerous journey…
