What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

For any child who has trouble going to sleep, here is a funny, imaginative, and ultimately empowering bedtime book about a girl who takes control of her nightmare and shows a group of monsters that she’s the boss of her dreams. In this creative bedtime book, a girl finds herself in a nightmare filled with snarling “beasties.” By her side is a little T-Rex named Ben, a stuffed animal who comes alive in her dreams. When she realizes that she’s in the middle of a bad dream, the plucky main character uses problem-solving and quick thinking to take control of the nightmare. She turns the tables on the beasties–asserting that she is the boss and directing the ultimately harmless monsters in a silly movie before reading them a story and tucking them in so they can all–finally–get a decent night’s sleep.
