Emily has a sleepover with her best friend Stephanie when they discover there’s a

monster in her closet! To investigate they recruit their friends to help capture the

monster. What they don’t know is that Murray, the closet monster, doesn’t mean

any harm. He only wants to play Emily’s new video game. He’s more scared of

kids than they are of him!

When the Dream King hears that Murray is goofing off on the job, Murray is put

on probation. It’s a fact that when a child is born, a monster is assigned to watch

over them – not play with their things. Other wonderful entertaining characters

include Sandy the Sandman and his dream weavers, Emily’s big brother and

friends, and various inhabitants of the dream world.
