I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll
For some reason kids are convinced they have monsters in their room, usually under their bed, that appear around bed time. Ethan is a little boy who instead of being scared of his monster, needs him to fall asleep. Gabe, Ethan's monster, decides to take a fishing trip. Once Ethan finds this note he tries to find a suitable substitute for Gabe but no other monster has claws or a tail quite as scary as his. Gabe soon returns after he decides fishing isn't really his sport. Ethan and Gabe are made for each other.
