The Great Dream Robbery is about a 12 year old named Maya Clayton who needs to save her dad Professor Dexter. Her dad  has invented a device which allows you to visit other people’s dreams. The problem is that Lilith Delamare has deviously trapped the professor in a nightmare. Maya and the Dream Bandits work together to save her dad before it’s too late.

About the book, a member of the team at the Alligator’s mouth, Helen said

“Greg James and Chris Smith are back with another fun-filled adventure! With their trademark wit and light-hearted touch, I was intrigued from the beginning and couldn't wait to discover how Maya and the gang would save her dad from the sinister Lilith Delamere. Packed with cool dream-tech, extremely cushioned mattresses, and the perfect balance of peril to puns, this is sure to keep you up past your bedtime as you read just one more chapter…”
