You may find this a hard story to believe but, trust me, it happened. One night when I was staring at the moon from my bedroom window I heard someone tapping on the wall. Then, a man with a sledgehammer broke through the wall.

'What are you doing?' I cried out.

'You're supposed to be asleep', was his reply.

'Well, I haven't got all night', he said, 'Comin' through!'

Holy flapjacks! The next thing I knew I heard a whistle and a big, silver train thundered through the room. When it was gone the stranger then said, 'We have to take down the railroad. Everybody got where they needed to go.'

Now, is that weird or what? Over the next few weeks that happened again, but rather than a train it was a colossal jet, and then a gigantic ocean liner that came through my room.

Finally I kind of figured out what was happening and when I did, I decided to do something I had always wanted to do. I'm not going to tell you what it was, though. You'll have to read my story to find out, but I think you'll be surprised.

If you are between three and seven years old and like construction stuff, trains, planes and boats, I think you'll really like this special bedtime story. It will help if you have a pretty good imagination too!
