Sample text:

I jumped up in bed, the little red monster was just above my head. It had a sword in one hand and a shield in the other. I felt sure it was going to slice my head off!

“Settle down Bobby, I’m here to help you, no need to scream…Boris to the rescue!” he said as he jumped down to the floor.

Suddenly the bed tilted and started to lift as the dragon roared and charged towards the little red monster. Fire poured from the dragon’s mouth and nostrils. I felt for sure that the monster was toast. But the monster showed that he was tougher than a slice of bread and deflected the fire with his shield.

“Charge!” screamed the red monster as he ran flat out with the sword pointed straight at the dragon’s snout. The dragon swished its tail and knocked the sword flying. 

The monster and the dragon wrestled on the floor, they rolled across the room and the dragon hit the wall with a thud. While the dragon was dazed, the monster picked up his sword and with one swift slice he cut the dragon’s head off.

Then he picked up the head and threw it out the window. The rest of the body turned to smoke and blew swiftly outside. 

The little red monster was a hero. He had saved me from the dragon.

“Did you kill the dragon?” I asked.

The monster smiled, “No Bobby, it’s not dead I’ve just sent it back to Dream Land and it won’t ever come back again.”

“Who, I mean, what are you?” I asked the monster.

“My name is Boris and I just saved you from a dragon dream, you can thank me if you want…” he said with a huge smile on his face.

“Ahh..thank you Boris, but you haven’t answered my question, what are you?” I asked again.
