My Bedtime Monster

My Bedtime MonsterRikki asks her parents for a pet that is cuddly and fierce, can be big or little, and can swim or fly, Rikki’s parents tell her that no animal like that exists. Through her imagination, she creates such a creature. The duo embarks on a journey where the creature changes its shape, size, and attitude on Rikki’s command.
