In this delightful story, the Pajanimals are playing hide and seek. Apollo finds Cowbella, then Sweetpea. But where is Squacky? Cowbella is first to notice that the closet door is ajar. When opened, Squacky comes tumbling out—and he's very upset. "It was dark, it was really dark, it was too dark!" Squacky says that when it's dark he can imagine all kinds of things in the closet - monsters or thumbtacks or talking cheese or worse! When Cowbella explains that it's just his imagination, Squacky replies, "My imagination does not like the dark!" And so the friends go on a journey to end Squacky's fear of the dark.

The app stays true to the show's origins in look, character, pacing and sound. There are options to read along, choose a page, or play some games along the way. The games are fun, but don't enhance the story. "There are no monsters in the closet" is the message that proves to be the winner here.
