One night, a curious little boy named Daniel is getting ready for bed. He asks his mom for one more story, to help him sleep. Then he begins imagining all the different things that might happen.

Perhaps pirates might come looking for all their gold and take him away. Mom tells Daniel that if they do, she’ll sail the seven seas and find him. Maybe aliens will come from space and give him his own rocket ship to race. Then, Mom says, she’ll have to build a rocket ship of her own so that they can play tag. One way or another, no matter where Daniel imagines traveling in his sleep, Mom will always find her son and be there for him.

This children’s story is a bedtime tale of imaginary travels and of the love between a mother and her son.
