Anyone else remember this YA monster novel from the 1980s...?

Hey, hive-mind!

I was recently reminded of a children's / Young Adult novel I read as a kid back in the 1980s about a boy who conjures three monsters from his favourite work of fiction, and he ends up having to kill them. But I can't remember the title or the author.

Here are the details I can remember:

* One of the monsters is called Yog. Or possibly Yogg. Or maybe Yaug. His name might be in the title.

* The cover shows the boy running down a flight of stairs, away from the trio of monsters. One is green, one is pale blue, one is yellow.

* That's all I have to go on.

Any help jogging my memory would be appreciated, because it's bugging the HECK out of me that I can't remember it.

Archive. org might be your friend. Was it part of an anthology series, like Christopher Pike or Goosbumps?
You might want to ask someone who owns a used book store.

As I said in our PM coonversations, I'm afraid that's not it, but I wanted to acknowledge this publicly and thank you again for trying.
