Arthur's Dream Boat

By Polly Dunbar

Synopsis

Have you ever had a dream so wonderful you wanted to tell everyone? Arthur has! He dreamt about an amazing beautiful pink and green boat with a stripy mast but... No one (not even his dog!) is interested in hearing about it. In fact, they don't even notice that this very same boat is growing on his head, getting larger and larger by the minute.
