Once upon a time, there was a little boy named James who was afraid to go to bed. Every night, his parents would tuck him in, turn off the light and leave the room, but James would lay there wide awake, listening to the creaks and groans of the old house and imagining all sorts of scary things lurking in the shadows.
His parents tried everything they could think of to help James feel more comfortable at night. They left the light on, but that only seemed to make the shadows more ominous. They told him there were no monsters under the bed or in the closet, but James wasn’t so sure. They even bought him a big stuffed animal to cuddle with, but that didn’t do much good either.
One night, as James was tossing and turning, he heard a soft scratching at the door. He sat up in bed and listened as the door slowly creaked open and a furry head poked its way into the room. It was the family’s pet dog, a friendly golden retriever named Bobby.
Bobby had always been a bit of a troublemaker, sneaking food from the kitchen and digging holes in the backyard, but James had always loved him. As Bobby wagged his tail and looked up at James with those big, goofy eyes, James couldn’t help but smile.
Bobby hopped up on the bed and snuggled close to James. The warmth of the dog’s body and the rhythmic sound of his breathing soon lulled James into a deep sleep.
In his dream James and Bobby decided to have an adventure on the moon. They packed their space suits and headed to the rocket ship that James’s dad had built in the backyard.
As they flew through the clouds and into space, James and Bobby looked out the window at the stars and planets. They saw a bright, shiny moon in the distance and flew towards it.
As they landed on the moon, James and Bobby stepped out of the rocket ship and onto the soft, gray surface. They bounced and skipped across the moon, exploring all the different craters and valleys.
As they walked, they saw a group of friendly lunar creatures playing a game of hopscotch. James and Bobby joined in, laughing and having a great time.
But suddenly, a loud alarm sounded. James and Bobby looked up to see a giant asteroid heading towards the moon! They quickly grabbed their space suits and rocketed back into the ship, flying off just in time to escape the asteroid’s path.
As they flew back to Earth, James and Bobby couldn’t wait to tell their mom and dad all about their amazing adventure on the moon
When James’ parents woke up the next morning, they were surprised to find James and Bobby snuggled up together, both of them sound asleep. James told them all about the best dream of his life that night, filled with magical adventures on the moon and encounters with cute little aliens.
From that day on, James was never afraid to go to bed again. Every night, he and Bobby would snuggle up together and James would drift off to sleep, dreaming of all the wonderful adventures they would go on in his dreams. And every morning, he would wake up with a big smile on his face, ready to tell his parents all about the amazing places he and Bobby had gone while he was asleep.
