Daisy Dreamer and the Totally True Imaginary Friend
Good Morning, Daisy!
“Mom who’s about to come get you out of bed if you don’t wake up, Daisy Dreamer!”
“Five more minutes to finish my dream!” I say, like I do every morning.
Then I close my eyes and try to remember my dream, but POOF! Just like that, it’s gone. I ask my pillow if it remembers. But it doesn’t.
Aw, man! It was a good one too. . . . At least, I think it was. I sigh and flop over onto my
stomach. Then I feel something tickle my toes.
“Daddy, STOP!” I shout as I squirm this way and that. “I asked for five more minutes! That was only two!” And I know I’m right.
Daddy laughs and says, “Wake up, Daisy Dreamer! You have to get out of bed, or you’ll dream the day away!”
So I tug my blanket right off the bed and hop onto the floor. Then I zoom out the door, dragging my blanket behind me.
“If I can’t stay in bed, then I’ll bring my bed with me!” I hide under my blanket and walk slowly down the hall. My blanket is actually a magical robe that makes me invisible. Now I can sleep and no one will see me.
Uh-oh! Sir Pounce has found me! Sir Pounce is a cat detective and secret
spy for the United Pet Spy Agency. He has X-ray vision and can see through my invisible robe. He pounces, and OWIE! His claws are sharp!
