Nightmares in the Mist encourages children to confront and express their fears, enabling them to identify the true causes of their fears and work through them.
Alicia was scared. Everywhere she turned, she heard a dull roaring sound and saw the glowing red eye of a monster coming toward her through a smoky, swirling mist. It had started right after her mom left for the hospital. First, it only came after Alicia in her room, but now it might show up at any time or anywhere. She never felt safe. Alicia wanted her mother, but she had begun to think her mom was never coming home from the hospital. On an outing with her father, sister, and brother, Alicia saw the mist and heard the awful roaring noise. Certain the monster was after her again, she ran away. Lost in a strange place, Alicia followed a tiny sparkling white light that led her to the door of Mrs. Murgatroyd. With the help of the wise woman's magical paints, Alicia faces her monster and discovers the source of her fear.
