  • Hey! Welcome to Storyline Online brought to you by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

  • I'm Tony Hale and today I'm gonna be reading No More Noisy Nights

  • written by Holly L. Niner and illustrated by Guy Wolek.

  • Alright. Let's get started.

  • Jackson worked hard all day moving into his new house.

  • After dinner, he relaxed.

  • And at nine o'clock, he climbed into bed.

  • That's when he heard...

  • OOOEEEeeeOOOEEEeee OOOOOOOOOO

  • "Oh dear," Jackson said.

  • "There must be a ghost in the attic.

  • I hope this noise stops soon."

  • But it didn't.

  • So Jackson stuffed his ears with cotton balls and tried to sleep.

  • The next morning Jackson was so tired

  • he poured orange juice on his cereal and ketchup on his toast.

  • After breakfast, Jackson peeked into the attic.

  • "Sorry to disturb you, Mr. Ghost, but could you please stop OOOEEEeee OOOEEEeee OOOing all night?

  • I would like to sleep."

  • "OOOEEEeee. I'm sorry," said the ghost. "But what else can I do?"

  • "Let me think about that," said Jackson.

  • Jackson thought about it all day while he unpacked.

  • After dinner, he put a box on the attic floor.

  • Then he relaxed in his favorite chair.

  • And at nine o'clock, Jackson climbed into bed.

  • That's when he heard...

  • BOOGETY WOOGETY WOOOOOOOO

  • "Oh dear," Jackson said. "There must be a boogey monster in the basement.

  • I hope this noise stops soon." But it didn't.

  • So he stuffed his ears with cotton balls, pulled on his thickest ski cap, and tried to sleep.

  • The next morning, Jackson was so tired he could barely open his eyes to pick out his clothes.

  • After breakfast, Jackson tiptoed down the stairs.

  • "Sorry to disturb you, Mr. Monster,

  • but could you please stop BOOGETY WOOGETY WOOing all night? I need to sleep."

  • "BOOGETY WOOGETY WHOOPS," said the boogey monster. "But what else can I do?"

  • "Let me think about that," said Jackson.

  • Jackson thought about it all day while he unpacked.

  • After dinner, he left a box at the bottom of the basement stairs.

  • Then he relaxed in his favorite chair.

  • And at nine o'clock, he climbed into bed. That's when he heard...

  • Plink! Plink! Plunk! Plink! Plunk! Plink! Plunk!

  • "Oh dear," said Jackson. "There must be a pixie in the piano.

  • I hope this noise stops soon." But it didn't.

  • So he stuffed his ears with cotton balls,

  • pulled on his thickest ski cap, wrapped his pillow around his head,

  • and tried to sleep.

  • The next morning, Jackson was SO tired

  • he washed his face with toothpaste and brushed his teeth with soap.

  • After breakfast, Jackson peeked into the piano.

  • "Sorry to disturb you, Miss Pixie, but could you please stop PLINK PLUNKing all night?

  • I really need to sleep."

  • "Plink plunk, pardon me," said the piano pixie.

  • "But what else can I do?"

  • "Let me think about that," said Jackson.

  • Jackson thought about it all day while he unpacked.

  • After dinner he put some sheet music on the piano.

  • But he was too tired to relax in his favorite chair, so Jackson climbed straight into bed.

  • That's when he just barely heard...

  • ...the gentle thup of puzzle pieces,

  • the quiet chugga-chugga of a toy train,

  • and the soothing sounds of a pixie lullaby.

  • Jackson sighed. He closed his eyes.

  • And he finally fell asleep in his new house with his not-so-noisy ....

  • ... new friends.

  • The end.

  • Now why I chose this book is: Guys I was kind of that kid that

  • was afraid of the dark. And what I so appreciate about Jackson

  • is he faced his fears with courage and he had a solution.

  • If there's something that you're kind of afraid of, you know what, things aren't always what they seem.

  • So thanks for watching Storyline Online. Make sure you check out all of our stories.

  • And keep watching and keep reading.
