How powerful is Lilah's imagination? If it smells like a monster, sounds like a monster, and in the shadows, looks like a monster, is it in fact a monster?
It is Little Lilah's bedtime. As soon as it's lights out and her parents wish her sweet dreams, she feels an unexplained thump under her bed. Her imagination is being powered by her fear, so the noise must be a monster. Lilah's senses are overriding logic and convince her that there is in fact a monster under her bed. Lilah tames her overactive imagination to independently conquer her monster by changing the narrative in her imagination. Lilah awards herself with a Masters degree in Monsterology from Bravery University. To reassure herself, her blanket becomes her cape of courage.
Lilah uses the power of her imagination to face her fear of what's under her bed, to problem solve and be self-reliant. Through changing the narrative, she convinces herself that she can overcome her fears and can face what's under her bed. She discovers that the monster under her bed is only, her bulldog Henri. Lilah manipulates her fears to gain confidence and understands what we see in the shadows is not always as it appears.
