Jack is so excited to spend the night in the backyard in his pirate tent. His younger sister, Lily, who is pretending to be a fairy, wants to stay in the tent too. "No way," Jack snorts, "it will be spooky and there will be scary sea monsters." "Pirates aren't afraid of the dark," he tells her, "but fairies are!" That night, Jack is playing in the tent when his flashlight goes out. And when he hears a rustling sound outside, he doesn't feel quite so brave after all.
