Daydreaming about pirate adventures transports 'Then' to 'Now'

Sleepin' be one thing an' dreamin' be another.
But when dreamin' walks into yer wakin' then that be something altogether diff'rent.

The Grumblelows are Mr. and Mrs. Grumblelow,
daughter Eleanor and their mischievous son Keypya.
They live very close to the sea, near a sheltered cove.
Whatever Keypya's real name is, it is never used.
One night, Keypya is wide awake playing with his pet mice and collection of slimy things. Meanwhile,
in the bedroom next door, Eleanor is dreaming about rubies and pearls and pieces of gold.
Her dream brings greedy treasure-seeking pirates to their home, putting Keypya's life in danger...

About the Author

L. Sydney Abel is the pen name of Lawrence Abel. The name was inspired by L. Frank Baum; the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Lawrence was born and raised in Kingston upon Hull, England. He is married and has two grown-up children. He attended Hull College, where he qualified as an Electronics Engineer. As a young aspiring musician, Lawrence composed the lyrics to his own music, progressing into the recording studio.

He began inventing stories during his children's early years, never putting pen to paper. Years later, Lawrence was encouraged to revisit the stories from the past and write them down. He has written and illustrated several books for children and young adults. Lawrence has recently ventured into the world of adult fiction, where experiences of the supernatural kind stimulate his imagination.
