I'm pretty sure it's a children's book, I haven't done much reading lately other than at work (I'm a nanny) so it must be a children's book.

So it's about a town with a boy as the main character I think (there might be a girl as well), where a man comes and steals dreams then they (a load of men) sell them back to the people in boxes.

I swear I only read it two weeks ago but my main charges didn't have a clue what I was talking about!

It was only a thin book, with lots of pictures....

Was it a government manifesto?

Well I'm starting to wonder if I should write it myself... but I swear it was a children's book! The men were very pointy <checks which drugs she's been taking lately>

Annoyingly it was whilst listening to BFG that I recalled it sad

It was something like dream collectors or thieves but so many books with those sort of names.

It was only a short picture book

Is it this? Englebert Sneem and his dream vacuum cleaner
