The Troll

(5 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

A troll who lives under a bridge is fed up of eating fish and on the look out for a tasty goat to cook. Tricked by different animals into going further down the river towards the sea, he sets off with his frying pan and cookery book in search of a goat.

Meanwhile, a bunch of fearsome pirates are searching for treasure and craving a well cooked dinner of fish as none of them know how to cook. Fate will bring the two parties together with hilarious consequences.

This fun and unusual picture book brings together two classic tales with a modern twist, which is great to read aloud and beautifully illustrated with David Roberts’ expressive drawings.
