Summary (From the publisher):

From award-winning master Ian McEwan comes an enchanting work of fiction that appeals equally to adults and children. In these seven exquisite, interlinked episodes, grown-up Peter Fortune reveals the secret journeys, metamorphoses, and adventures of his childhood.

Living somewhere between dream and reality, Peter experiences fantastical tranformations: he swaps bodies with the family cat and a cranky infant, battles a very bad doll who comes to life to seek revenge, and discovers in a kitchen drawer some vanishing cream that actually makes people vanish. In the final story, he wakes up as an eleven-year-old inside a grown-up's body, and embarks on the truly fantastic adventure of falling in love. Moving, dreamlike, and extraordinary, The Daydreamer is a celebration of imagination and fantasy.
