The Long-Haired Monster

One night, a monster came out from under Eddie’s bed. It was big. It was blue. And it loved to play tricks on children.

“Are you going to eat me?” Eddie asked.

“You never know!” the monster said with a big smile.

The monster pulled several long, blue hairs from his eyebrows and braided them together.

The braid began to glow.

The monster brushed Eddie’s face with the hair. The boy quickly fell asleep.

The next morning, Eddie’s mom scolded him for eating the cookies she had just baked.

Eddie said he hadn’t eaten any of the cookies. His mom didn’t believe him.

He spotted a long blue hair near the empty cookie tray. Now Eddie knew who had done it.

Eddie soon began getting into lots of trouble.

He was grounded for tracking mud into the house.
