When Jared’s mom tells him he needs to find “a little self-control,” Jared misunderstands and begins to search for a “little yellow troll.” He finds the curmudgeonly creature in his own backyard carrying a bag labeled “Jared’s Self-Control.” But the troll won’t give up his bag until Jared passes seven tests. As Jared passes each test, he learns what self-control is, and what he needs to know and do in order to practice it.
