Don’t you hate it when all you want to do is get out of bed and go to the toilet but things like wolves and smelly trolls, giants and spooks keep getting in the way.  That’s never happened to you? Me either. But Phoebe on the other hand, who has an incredible imagination by the way, has just such a bother.  Just as well she is such a good natured type. They barely faze her at all as they all one by one join her on her stroll to the bathroom for one reason or another.  The smelly troll for example needs soap.

This is another funky story from Scholastic NZ.  Lot’s of fun for the imagination. Gorgeously illustrated and a great way to explore those things that might give you a fright if you let your imagination run away with you.

So, now you know.  If you are too scared to go to the toilet during the night because there is a wolf under your bed.  Just do what Phoebe does and take it with you.  He probably needs a walk.
