     Just when her mom turns off the bedroom light, they appear out of nowhere. She blinks and stares at the three weird creatures, hoping to drive them away. Yet the purple wolf, the white snake, and the green ball don’t budge and they stay where they are.  When she screams and calls her mom, her mom turns on the light. Once she tells her mom what she just saw, her mom comforts her by saying that it seems that they are the bedtime guests, because she used to see them in her own bedroom when she was a little girl, too! Then again, these guests are different for every individual child and that’s part of the fun.
