During a trip into town, Martin sees a crew of workers installing some big stone goblin-looking sculptures on the front of the Town Hall. He learns that long ago the stone goblins, which are called Gargoyles, were often placed on buildings to ward off anything scary. Martin thinks that a Gargoyle might be just the thing to help protect him from his new fear of noises in the night.PARENT NOTE:
This is a story about facing night-time fears, but using something that is traditionally perceived as being "scary" to find courage. So the topics of night-time fear and "scary things" run throughout.
