The Daydreamer

A bizarre and often forgotten book, McEwan’s novel is split into seven short stories about ten-year-old Peter Fortune. Peter is a daydreamer, and slips into a fantasy world regularly. But the line between reality and his imagination becomes more and more blurred, as he fantasises about wiping out his entire family with invisibility cream, and then swapping bodies with the cat! For young fans of creepier stories, this will be well worth a read.
