A Companion Book

This book is a companion to Alan H. Jordan's The Monster on Top of the Bed. Children become the author by writing their own story on the illustrations, and their name on the front cover.

Their inspiration

This book is based on The Monster on Top of the Bed, a story that has delighted children for years. Once upon a time, there was a critter who was scared every day by a little girl named Suzy who loved to jump up and down on her bed. One day a critter who lived under her bed, Karrit, got up the nerve to visit Suzy and become her friend. Because Karrit did that, he discovered that Suzy was also afraid of him. Because Suzy did not want the critter to be scared, she treated him the way that she wanted to be treated. She even told him a mantra that her Grandmom had used as a child, “You’re welcome to stay until I say, ‘Nay’, then it’s time to go and you can’t say, ‘no.’ After working through a series of humorous misunderstandings and fears they became best friends, and neither of them were ever afraid of monsters again.

Fire up children's imaginations. . .

Show a child a printed or Kindle edition of The Monster on Top of the Bed. Then, ask them to make up a story. They will eagerly write their own story. Buy a copy for each of your children. Not only will writing their own story help the child express his or her creativity, it will help children read better. And, writing a story that banishes monsters on demand will help children sleep.
