KENNESAW, Ga., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Young children and parents can sleep easier with the introduction of "A Light in the Night™," a board book and plush nighttime guardian providing a simple remedy for dealing with nighttime fears and bedtime worries. The book, written and illustrated by first-time author and inspired-mom, Sandy Harsanyi Murphy, is the latest project in family-focused books and toys from award-winning publishing company, CCA and B.

Based on the story of a "nighttime guardian" that wards off all things that slither and creep with its tummy light, "A Light in the Night™" bestows confidence in young children. Each copy of the book comes with its own plush nighttime guardian, which emits a soft, green glow when squeezed. The nighttime guardian is available in bubblegum pink, ice blue and mint green shades.

"I wrote A Light in the Night when I moved my oldest son Zoli into his 'big boy bed,'" Harsanyi Murphy shared. "He looked so small and frightened in such a big room, it absolutely broke my heart to leave him alone in the dark. The story of our 'nighttime guardian' has given my children the confidence to sleep alone in their rooms and us, as parents, the comfort of knowing they feel safe."

The launch of the new book is the second project from CCA&B following the hugely successful, best-selling "The Elf On The Shelf: A Christmas Tradition®." We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to publish Sandy Harsanyi Murphy's first children's book," says Christa Pitts, co-founder of CCA&B.

Children and their parents can also interact with the fully animated, family-focused website, based on concepts found in the book. There they can play games, make crafts, register their nighttime guardian's name and receive their personalized "Certificate of Bravery."

In addition to the website, readers can follow the nighttime guardian via ongoing updates on Twitter at and Facebook at "A Light In The Night™" is available nationwide at gift stores, toy boutiques and direct, via or by calling 1-877-919-4105.
