Hey, welcome to Storyline online brought to you by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. I’m Tony Hale and today I’m going to be reading no more noisy nights written my holly L9 are illustrated by Guy Wallach. All right, let’s get started. Jackson worked hard all day, moving into his new house. After dinner. He relaxed and a nine o’clock, he climbed in a bag. That’s when he heard about Dear Jackson said, there must be a ghost. I hope this noise stop soon, but it didn’t. So Jackson stuff in his years with a mouse and tried to sleep. The next morning, Jackson was so tired, he poured orange juice on his cereal and catch up on his house. After breakfast, Jackson peeked into the attic, I’m sorry, disturb you, Mr. goes. But could you please stop all night? I would like to sleep. I’ve said the ghost about what our cannot do. Let me think about that. Said Jackson. Jackson thought about it all day while he unpacked. After dinner, he put a box on the attic floor. Then he relaxed and his favorite chair. And at nine o’clock, Jackson climbed and debate. That’s when he heard Margaret, our work in Iran, Iraq, and our Dear Jackson said, there must be You monster in the basement, I hope is noise stops soon, but it didn’t. So a stuffed disease with cotton balls pulled on as thick as ski tab and tried to sleep. The next morning, Jackson was so tired he could barely open his eyes to pick out as close. After breakfast. Jackson tip toe down the stairs. Sorry to disturb you, Mr. monster. But could you please stop boogie woogie worrying all night? I need to sleep. Bogan, I want you to, whoops, said the boogie monster. But what else can I do? Well, to think about them, said Jackson. Jackson thought about it all day while he unpacked. After dinner, he left a box at the bottom of the basement stairs. Then he relaxed and his favorite chair and a nine o’clock, he climbed into bad. That’s when he heard play, play, play, play. Blink. Dear said Jackson, there must be a pixie in the piano. I hope this noise stop soon, but it didn’t. So he stuffed disease with cotton balls, pulled on as thick as ski cap, wrapped his pillow around his head and tried to sleep. The next morning, Jackson was so tired. He washed his face with toothpaste and brushed his teeth with soap. After breakfast, Jackson peeked into the piano. Sorry, I disturbed you miss pixie. That Could you please stop plink plunking all night? I really need to sleep. Plunk, plunk. Pardon me, said the piano pixie. Let me think about that. Sent Jackson Jackson thought about it all day while he unpacked. After dinner, he put some sheet music on the piano, but he was too tired to relax and his favorite chair. So Jackson climb straight into bed. That’s when he heard the gentle stop of puzzle pieces. The quiet chug, chug out of a toy train and the soothing sound of a pixie lullaby. Jackson sign closed his eyes and he finally fell asleep. New house with his not so noisy new friends. The end. Now why I chose this book is guys, I was kinda that kid that was afraid of the dark. What I so appreciate about Jackson, has he faced the spheres with courage? Andy had a solution. And if there’s something that you’re kind of afraid of, what things aren’t always what they seem.
