Midnight O'Clock

Written by Nathan Oser and narrated by Rob Griffiths

Whenever there are monsters in the closet or lurking in shadowy corners, I do what any smart kid would... I hide under the covers. Before long I’m sound asleep. But that doesn’t mean I’m safe. What if I wake up again, and what if it’s midnight when I do? The scariest hour of them all!

A spooky short story for any kid who’s ever let their imagination run wild at night. Perfect for Halloween! 🎧 🎃 👻

WARNING: This episode contains descriptions of a child's imaginings of night time monsters and may be frightening for younger or sensitive children. Parental discretion is advised.

Suitable for children aged between 6-13 years old

You can watch the animated trailer that goes with this story over on YouTube, and check out more of the author’s short fiction and illustrations on his website:

Nathan has also just released a short Halloween joke book for young readers called ‘The Monster Laughbook: Jokes and More from Owlsby in Autumn’. It is available for purchase over on Amazon

It’s bound to give you a good laugh. MMMMWWAHAHAHAHA! 😈
