The Monster in the Garden

Time for another Trifecta Challenge! Here’s the prompt: Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone.

Here’s my little story!

The Monster in the Garden

You drew your monster with horns, scales, giant teeth.

“He plays with the tulips and caterpillars,” you said.

“Not a very scary monster.” I said.

“Ugly doesn’t mean bad.” You rolled your eyes.
