Peppa's dream, 2016


Peny Fylaktaki

Peppa pig is taking breakfast with her family, describing her wonderful night-dream. She saw that she was jumping in a muddy puddle with her family and beloved friends. When her friends come to play with her, Peppa is looking forward to seeing her dream come true. But it’s vain. She goes to sleep consoled by her mother that she should not lose faith in dreams. The next day, a school trip to the Joy Fair excites all children and each one of them is fascinated by an activity when a sudden rainfall puts an end to their play and makes them find shelter under a shed. As soon as the sun comes out, Peppa’s frustration of her unfinished joy turns into happiness when she finds out that a huge muddy puddle was created by the “disastrous” rain and they all jump as they did in her dream, because... nobody knows when it is the moment when dreams come true, as long as one does not lose faith!
