The dream magician has a long red
beard and great magical powers. By day, he lives closed up in his little house
surrounded by a wall, and only at night, when all the children are asleep, does
he venture out to do his magic. Then he wanders among the houses with a small
magic mirror that glitters in the dark. And when he points it at a sleeping
child’s head, all the child’s dreams are reflected in it. If the child dreams
that he’ll grow up to be an engineer or an architect, a craftsperson or a
daring sea-captain, the magician sees it in his mirror and writes it in his
notebook. And he can also help children’s dreams come true. But only if the
child remembers his dreams forever. In other words, the dream magician can only
make dreams come true if the child never gives up on them.
An enchanting story in rhyme for
children and parents alike, about the link between dreams and ambition.
