As soon as the special deputies, Sheriff Smith, and Justice arrive at Kaden and Briley’s house, they head to the bedroom, where Justice begins sniffing for clues. But when he growls at something in the closet, everyone is surprised at what he finds!
In this entertaining children’s tale, a sheriff, his dog, and a group of special deputies help two children realize the power of their imaginations and face their fears while solving the mystery of the bedroom monster.
