Letting your imagination get the best of you, is perhaps one of the main themes of this story. Bill is a young boy who cant seem to sleep alone in his room, because of the lights on his walls and the noise coming from his closet. His parents dont seem very sympathetic when Bill wakes them up several times during the night to tell them about what he has seen and heard. Bill decides to visit grandma's room, (a great commentary on keeping family together!), and after several attempts at helping Bill fall asleep, she decides to use a magic, protective spell on Bill's room.
