I want to be just what I am. A dirty, scruffy, trickster fairy! Why do I have to change? "Cobweb, fan. Cobweb, straighten your wings." When Titania called my name, I should have said, "No thank you. I’m going to splash in a mud puddle."

Cobweb is not having a good time as part of Titania's train. She dreams of a life where she plays pranks all day long and doesn't have to be a stuffy, stuck-up fairy in waiting. If only it was a simple as crossing the brook to be part of Oberon’s train!

But life in the woods is not simple. The King and Queen fight tooth and nail, Cobweb fights to make her dreams come true, and her friends fight to keep her from being turned into a toadstool. A mortal with a donkey head has wandered into the grove and the flower fairies blame Cobweb. Oh will this midsummer night never end?

Cobweb Dreams is a fun-filled fantasy that runs parallel to the events of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
