Day 2 of the 30 Day Book Meme: BOOK THAT I'VE READ MORE THAN 3 TIMES

Day 01 – The best book you read last year
Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than 3 times

This book is in my Favourites list (obviously I wouldn't read something more than 3 times if it wasn't a favourite!) and although I have many favourites I don't actually read them over and over. This one, however, I have read repeatedly only because I was introduced to this book at a young age and its magic has always stayed with me. 

Pepper Dreams by Colin Thompson

Words can't really describe how grateful and happy I am to have this book in my library and in my memories. 
This is a story of a boy named Max who goes to his Granny's (his dad's mother's) house for the summer, the summer after his dad dies. After having terribly traumatic nightmares and peaceful dreams with a blue-eyed lady, he reaches his Grandmother's castle-like mansion with no clue what to expect. He's never met his granny before. 
She's the blue-eyed lady from his dreams and Max has entered a world filled with magic and wonder, bringing him closer to knowing his father and himself. 
Pepper Dreams has got an amazing cast of characters (and objects) : The Sandwich Girl, a pigeon called Fluffy St Marie, Princess Cream Tea, soup- just soup everywhere, not to mention my favourites: King Trevor The Four Hundred And Forty First Or Is It Second, and the submarine made of only postage stamps!

Is this by the same Colin Thompson that wrote the Floods series and How To Live Forever?
HTLF is my favourite book, so if it is him, I'll definitely have to check this one out! :)

Yes it's the same Colin Thompson!
I LOVED How to Live Forever as well! It was so good, but a little creepy I have to admit...
Pepper Dreams isn't being published anymore but you should be able to find it online somewhere?
