Dan doesn't really want to go to sleep, but after the usual ploys about drinks of water, being hot, etc., he begins to see monsters under the bed. Patient mum comes upstairs to prove him wrong each time until her patience finally wears thin, and she tells him firmly to go to sleep. Only this time there really is a monster - a small cuddly one who cries and wants a drink of water, a story and a cuddle. Dan and the monster make friends and fall asleep happily. Warm pastel illustrations help make this loveable.
