Abbey’s Monster

How is Abbey supposed to sleep when the monster in her closet keeps howling, banging and scratching at her door?  And to top it off, her parents can’t seem to see the monster.   Abbey has to be brave and face it herself.  But as Abbey discovers, monsters aren’t always what they first appear to be.

Abbey had a monster in her closet.  She was sure of it.  And each night as bedtime approached, Abbey did everything she could to avoid going to bed.  She would ask “could I have a drink of water?” or “could we have another story?”  But sure enough the time would come when her mother or father would say “Good night Abbey!” then…

the light would go click
and the door would go creak
and the latch would go clack…
and the sounds of that monster would always came back!
