Matchbox Dreams, The Series
Through my stories, I hope to give children a head start on what to dream about. Then, all they have to do is lie down and continue the adventure in their dreams.
The first book, The Drapkin Kids in Dreamland, is a series of 20 short stories built around three children, Titus, Constance, and Evie, living in 1900. And three incredibly adorable mice called Harper, Remy and Millie. The mice guide the children through a magical place called Dreamland, where new adventures await every corner.
Each night Harper, Remy and Millie come alive through the short stories, designed to be about 10-20 minutes long. For added fun, children can act out the stories with the toy mice that can be purchased online.
Book Two, The Jenkins’ Kids in Dreamland, picks up where Book one leaves off. The adventure continues with three distant cousins from 2020, Abigail, Joel, Bethany, and three cute hamsters, Archie, Amber and Alice. Each night, the kids and hamsters travel back to 1900 and explore remote parts of Dreamland and run into their cousins from time to time.
It’s easy to fall in love with the characters and adventures that take place in Dreamland. From unicorns, fairies, and bridge trolls, to puppies, squirrels, and treasure-greedy dogs, children will look forward to bedtime each night to hear the next adventure in Dreamland. At the same time, young adults will enjoy reading the series to themselves.
Matchbox Dreams will be a series of twelve books when completed. Book one is sold through Amazon and Kindle with an audiobook on Audible. Book two is now available also on Amazon and Kindle, as well as this site. Storylines for books three and four are already being developed.

Going to bed smoothly is a task that many kids struggle with. We recognize this so we’ve made it our goal to ease bedtime struggles. Getting your child into a consistent nighttime routine is critical and has many benefits. There have been multiple studies done which look at how sleep affects children. An article from Parents.com mentions a British study that looked at the sleeping patterns of children between the ages of 3-7. They found links between consistent bedtime and positive behavior. They also found that irregular bedtimes interrupt a child’s circadian rhythm, which then affects the mental and physical function of a child. We believe our stories will encourage kids to fall asleep, excited by the fact that they can continue the adventures in Dreamland.
It’s easy to fall in love with the characters and adventures that take place in Dreamland. From puppies to squirrels, to treasure greedy dogs, we hope your child has as much fun listening to the stories as we did writing them! Even Young Adults with like reading this book. So whether you are looking for children's books or young adult books, Matchbox Dreams is perfect for both age groups.
