The Midnight Monster – That Eerie Time of Year

OooeeeOooo! It’s that eerie time of year, and if you’re looking for a good, fun children’s mystery to read to your kids, check out The Midnight Monster on Amazon kindle. A perfect bedtime story that will keep them engaged, but won’t give them nightmares.

Reading with your children creates a bonding experience that will last a lifetime and memories they can pass on to their own children. I began reading to my son when he was about 6 – 8 months old with cloth books. We read together for many years and if I knew the last time I read to him was going to be the last time, I would have soaked in the moment more. Alas, he finally grew out of being read to and now I look forward to reading to grandchildren when that season arrives.

I hope you and your child enjoy The Midnight Monster – let me know.

Until next time, may happy days abound!




The Midnight Monster: a Children’s Mystery Short Story

Nine-year-old Ben and his twin sister Jen have an eerie mystery on their hands. This is the third night they have been lured from their beds by a hideous bellowing that seems to start at midnight, only to abruptly stop after a while. In their efforts to solve the noisy mystery they find many interesting things, but no monster. Tired, but not discouraged, Ben and Jen, with combined determination and bravery, set out the third night committed to finding the monster. Their efforts lead them to their parents’ room. What surprising turn of events do they find there?

Good day to everyone! Thank you for strolling by Leisure Lane today. I hope you all had a fun Halloween. The sweetest children with the cutest costumes came by for treats – so polite, too, I don’t think any of them would have truly had the heart to trick. AND!! I JUST had a V-8 moment…yes, how silly of me, but I could have printed out some copies of Little Jack’s Big Purpose and handed them out with the candy. It would have been a perfect Halloween extra for them to have long after the chocolate is gone. Maybe next year..eeeee!!! See, this is why I’m looking to get myself together. Oh, well, moving right along…..

Speaking of children, I just published a short story I wrote many years ago called, The Midnight Monster. You can find it on Amazon Kindle. I’m getting together some of my children’s stories I’ve written. I’ll keep you posted for what’s next.

Thank you again, for visiting. May God bless you today and always, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!
