A little boy does not want to go to bed and sprouts a tail and growls, turning into a bedtime monster.
Unlike most monster bedtime stories, this one has the main character turn into a monster, but his mom and dad help him fight the bedtime monster.

Quick story about a boy who turns into a monster when he doesn't want to go to bed. It's cute and bilingual in English and Spanish. Nothing super special, but another good story about night time.
