‘The Light’ appears when she has nodded off and so does a little character called ‘Snowy’. Snowy takes after his name with a white face, soft fluffy hair and piercing blue eyes.  He is so small, in fact he is ankle height and doesn’t speak a lot – he only appears at the start and end of Jeany’s dream and is really a figment of Jeany’s imagination.  Jeany’s adventure begins when she opens a door into another world where whatever you think albeit good, becomes a reality…
