"They're going to send you on a sales trip and it'll be the death of you I know what's going on at Gippart. You're their guinea pig."
This book provides examples of:
- Chekhov's Skill: Teresa is good at telling stories, Baz/Bors is an amateur drummer, Joshua is... just a bit kleptomaniac.
- Door Stopper: While not as hefty as some other books, it still clocks in at a perfectly respectable 640 pages.
- Dream Land: Umaya.
- Dub Name Change: Bors becomes Baz, Joshua Tak becomes Joshua Cope, Giphart becomes Gippart, and so on.
- Britain Is Only London: And in the original Dutch book, The Netherlands is only Amsterdam.
- Half-Identical Twins
- Reality Warper: somewhat justified - they're in Dream Land. Joshua can change things by looking at them. Teresa also qualifies - she can change things by telling stories. These example are not a Game-Breaker because 1) these powers are limited: Joshua and Teresa can't do everything they want; 2) they're are initially unaware of their powers.
- Time Master: Baz/Bors
- Theme Twin Naming: Joshua and Jericho
- The Storyteller: Teresa
- Time Travel: but in Dream Land.
