” I am eight years old but I’m still afraid of the dark.
I know I am a big girl but that is just how it is.
So Mummy leaves my bedside lamp on all night.
But if I get out of bed, my shadow follows me.
Sometimes this scares me and I call out to Mummy.
She flips the wall switches.
My room is flooded with light
And the shadow monsters go away.”
