Towser and the monster egg ISBN: 9780862645557
Published by Andersen Press, 1995
Towser is definitely in charge of his particular monster. This monster hatches from a large egg under the cherry tree, and Towser convinces the monster that he, Towser, has control over the sun. The monster, who is a little dim, picks cherries for Towser and does the housework in return for Towser's 'lighting' the sun each morning. Good ideas for manipulating your own monsters!
