Meet Sam, a young boy who does not want to sleep in his own bed. Sam crowds into his parents’ bed to sleep at night because he’s afraid of the boogie man lurking in his own room. With the help of his mother, father and sister, Sam tries several times to get rid of the boogie man in his closet. When all else fails, Sam and his family play their instruments and make music in Sam’s room until the boogie man boogies away! (We won’t give away where the boogie man boogies to but it’s a shocker!) This is an endearing and  empowering story that will delight the entire family!
