Tryp - Bedtime Shorts
by Brian C Hailes
Tryp makes his thrilling and hilarious debut in a series of three adventurous bedtime short stories where he must face his fears of monsters, aliens, night terrors, and yes, sleep itself. This is the first collection of shorts that feature Tryp based on the animated films, Bedtime, Under the Bed, and Camping, (currently in production) by award-winning writer and illustrator-turned-filmmaker, Brian C Hailes. Inside these pages, Tryp, a rambunctious 7-year-old boy, and his beloved stuffed Kodiak bear, Liam, along with his skeptical sea eagle, Arnie, (who both come charmingly to life) is filled with the unfettered and winsome glory that makes up the best kind of childhood. And Tryp will do just about anything to get his way, whether he finds himself in deep with Mom and Dad or not.
Join Tryp and his animal friends, Liam and Arnie, as they stand-off against that conniving and diabolical enemy that faces all children at nightfall . . . sleep (although Liam-as most prudent Kodiak bears do-rather enjoys a good, undisturbed night's rest). In this 3-part collection of stories based on the hilarious animated films entitled Bedtime, Under the Bed, and Camping, Tryp's family puts up with a healthy dose of Tryp at his very best-er, worst-and, as per usual, his antics land him into a world of trouble with Mom and Dad . . . But they still love him in all his anxious, mischievous and imaginative glory. Tryp will be Tryp. What are you gonna do?
