Amir does not want to go to bed. He knows that if dad turns the lights off, a monster will appear. Amir’s dad isn’t worried because he would fight the monster off himself. If the monster also has a dad, though, then they must be doomed. But dad knows Amir’s mom would come to the rescue. As this father continues to calm his son’s fears, Amir learns that the whole family would vanquish the monsters. Maybe they wouldn’t even need vanquishing, and they could all get along. Soon Amir can sleep in peace, knowing there is no need to fear monsters.
