Page 5 - illustration page and:
ALLOW ME TO introduce myself. I'm Flooty Hobbs. Maybe you know me...Maybe you don't.
Page 6 illustration page and:
I used to be GREAT!
Page 7 - illustration page and:
I thought everyone was sacred of me...
Page 8 - illustration page and:
until I met Riley, age 6. Now I'll never be the same.
Page 9 - illustration page and:
It was a night like any other.
Page 10 - illustration page and:
As always, I waited through the usual bedtime routine. First, the night clothes. Then, teeth were brushed...
Page 11 - illustration page and:
Faces were washed. At last, the bedtime story was told.
Page 12 - illustration page and:
The lights went out and it was finally time to appear. But I didn't know that Riley had a plan.
Page 13 - illustration page and:
Here's what happened.
Page 14 - illustration page and:
My scary friends and I approached the bed. As usual, I got to go first. I made my scariest face...
Page 15 - illustration page and:
but all I heard from underneath the covers was "Tee hee, tee hee. You don't scare me!"
Page 16 illustration page and:
That's when Spooky Luke spoke up. "You call that scary, Flooty? Let me try!" he insisted.
Pages 17 & 18- illustration pages.
Page 19 - illustration page and:
He got the same response. Tee hee, tee hee. You don't scare me!
Page 20 - illustration page and:
Scary Larry was next. "Nice try, Luke. Now step aside. Here's a new face I've been working on. This will be real scary."
Page 21 - illustration page and"
But he got the same response, too.
Tee hee, tee hee, you don't scare me!
Pages 22 & 23- illustration page and:
One by one, we all took turns making our scariest faces. And one by one...we all got the same response. It had always been so simple. But tonight, Riley was not so easy to scare. So, we decided to all make faces together on the count of three. One...Two...Three!
Pages 24 and 25 - illustration pages.
Page 26 - illustration page and:
This time, from underneath the covers, there was no reply. Complete silence. We blinked in the darkness.
Page 27 - illustration page and:
Straining to hear, I leaned closer. Then we all leaned closer...and closer still...
Pages 28 and 29 illustration pages and:
when suddenly, the covers flew off, and out jumped a JIGGLING, JOLLY, GOLLYWOBBER!
Everybody shrieked, shrank and scattered, except for me. I was too scared to move. So I just stood and trembled.
Page 31 Who could blame me?! Everybody knows that a Gollywobber (especially a jolly one that jiggles) is the one thing that can strike terror into the heart of any bedtime monster. And that includes me, Flooty Hobbs.
Page 32 - illustration page and:
"You don't have to be afraid," said the Golllywobber, "I'm really Riley James Taylor."
Page 33 - illustration page and:
"If you look closer, you'll see I'm just pretending to be a Gollywobber.
Page 34 - illustration page and:
And I can see that you and your friends are nothing more than shadows in the dark. That's nothing to be afraid of."
Page 35 - illustration page and:
With that, I knew I would never be looked at the same, so I had to leave, never to return.
Page 36 - illustration page and:
The last thing I heard Riley say, snuggling back under the covers was "Tee hee tee hee. You'll never scare me."
and you know, the kid was right.
