Every night a little monster with hairy feet comes into Maggie’s room. She crashes into the furniture. She crawls under the table. She sits down on the chair and grumbles to herself.

“Get out of my room!” Maggie shouts, but the monster doesn’t pay any attention.

What does the monster want? Finally, Maggie asks her, and the answer will surprise and delight.
