Synopsis:

CRUNCH! GROAN! SLOBBER! GRRRR… Daddy? Mummy? There is a MONSTER UNDER MY BED!

Joey is a playful child who is all about play and no work. Every day, he would daydream during class and every night, he would lie to his mother about completing his homework from school.

One night, when Joey was about to fall fast asleep, he heard something. There was something under his bed. He could hear it breathing. Maybe one. Two? Even three or four. Under his blanket, Joey shut his eyes tight and hoped that the monster would go away.

Monster Under My Bed is a child’s tale of his adventure as he faces the terrible nighttime creature. Together they conquered the Sea of Mathematics, the Spelling Mountain and the Bridge of Truth, finally to earn a good night’s rest. Filled with music, drama, puppetry, laughs and scary fun, this story will delight any child who ever envisioned monsters lurking in the bedtime darkness.
