Who will speak for the Dreamer?

Quick, follow the shadows before you! Follow the wind in the grass! Follow the path that leads nowhere Before these things come to pass!

When 12 year old Rohan first sees the faces peering from the old blackwood, and his small dog, Badger, senses that something is amiss, then the dreams begin.

  • What do they mean, the strange rhymes repeated in the night?
  • What happened to the old house on the hill?
  • Why does he see a little girl in a red polka dot dress on the path that leads nowhere?
  • Who is the silvered archer at his windowsill in the moonlight, and what is the fox in the painting trying to tell him?
  • Only the Dreamer has a final chance to right a great wrong and prevent the re-enactment of a great tragedy But with the forces of darkness again reaching out, will Rohan join Rowan in time?


    “Amy’s stories of mystery and magic consistently respect the power of imagination and the music of good writing. They enrich the gift of childhood.”

    Jim Hopkins

    “Amy Brooke’s stories are a voyage of discovery for the characters and reader alike. Quite simply, New Zealand’s best children’s writer.”

    Mike King

    Dear Amy

    I have just read your Who will speak for the Dreamer? which I was saving up as a reward for finishing a novel, which I have now finished, seconds before it finished me. Phew. That’s why it has taken me until now to read it.

    In fact, I have read it twice. It is wonderful. Why have I not read your books before? Your story-telling skills are superb, the narrative is illustrative without being heavy, the story is chilling enough to enthrall, I adore your tough, aged females and the book has a wonderful, spiritually uplifting ending. I love it.

    Therefore, can I swap some of my books for yours? I enclose three which you might like.

    Please accept my most sincere compliments on your skill.

    Yours faithfully

    Kerry Greenwood
