When her parents go to sleep, Jessica tiptoes all the way to the basement workshop. No monster. But then she hears it snuffling about upstairs. Grabbing her small sand bucket, she fills it with water and carefully makes her way up the stairs and into her parents' bedroom. The monster seems to have crawled into bed beside Daddy. Jessica swiftly douses it with her bucketful of water! The light goes on on Mommy's side. Dad says no words that are printable. "There is no Monster." Dad was snoring. Instead of triumphant, Jessica feels sheepish. She helps her parents change the sheets, dry Dad's hair and take her stuffed monsters to the spare bedroom. After being safely tucked into bed once more, Jessica is relieved to hear her parents giggling in their room.
