One night, Mommy has to go to a neighborhood board meeting, leaving Daddy and girls to fend for themselves. Daddy makes the girls supper and tells them a thrilling bedtime story before kissing them goodnight. Then he locks himself out of the house while taking out the recycling. Tillie and Clementine are later awakened by strange noises coming from just outside their window! What could it be and what will they do?
This first book by Dan Killeen contains a story within a story, when Daddy tells the girls a bedtime tale about two princesses. For about the middle ten pages we are in the medieval world of castles, crowns, and dragons before returning to the original narrative and present day. From there, young readers enjoy anticipating the finale of the book as it echoes the plot of the bedtime story.
