When his family moves into an old house, Howard can’t sleep because he thinks there’s a monster under his bed, even though his mom insists there’s no such thing. Meanwhile, under Howard’s bed, a “non-existent” little monster is afraid because he hears a boy above his bed, but HIS mom is adamant that there’s no such thing!
With the proliferation of the Marvel/DC Comics-produced movies and cartoons, various forms of character merchandising, and most importantly, peer influence, you can’t blame a kid for aspiring to be a superhero too. But even superheroes have rules to follow, and who better to guide them than the awesome twosome of Lava Boy and Captain Magma?
Lizzy and her cat are flying around on her broomstick when they spot a house with the lights still on. Being a curious little witch, she can’t resist taking a peek but accidentally crashes inside.
Phillip and Brock are best friends and they spend all their time together. The only problem is, everyone else can’t see Brock and have labelled him “Phillip’s imaginary friend”.
When Mr. Squirrel is woken up by something falling on his tree, he’s shocked to find the big, round, yellow moon (which looks suspiciously like a giant wheel of cheese) on a branch.
When I was little, large family get-togethers were basically excuses for the children to stuff our faces and hang out with cousins whom we rarely met up with. In fact, the only childhood memories I have of such occasions are that of eating and playing.

(It sure doesn’t help that she seems to favour blood-red food and sleeps really poorly at night…)
