Jack versus Veto Match Five by Jim Eldridge
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

In this penultimate adventure in the Wrestling Trolls series, the little band of friends must pull together and face their toughest challenges yet.

A Piece of Passion from Holly Kyte, Editor Jim's Wrestling Trolls stories just get more thrilling every time, and in this, the fifth and penultimate book in the series, things are really hotting up before the final showdown. . .

We're on more rip-roaring adventures with Jack, Milo, Princess Ava, Big Rock and the gang as they get into all kinds of scrapes on their travels, but this time they are facing their toughest challenges and most dastardly villains yet. The bonds between these wacky characters become stronger than ever as they must pull together to rescue their grumpy but lovable friend Robin from some nasty horse thieves, and help Jack recover a family treasure from the depths of Veto Castle - which might just lead them to some shocking revelations that will blow your socks off!

What I love most about these stories is that they are packed full of both adventure and heart. So expect plenty of action, loads of fun, heartwarming friendships, scary monsters, new (and extremely villainous) villains, and of course lots of bone-crunching wrestling - all brought to life by Jan Bielecki's bold and brilliant illustrations. It's another fizzing couple of tales for younger readers that show just how important it is to play fair and stick by your friends when things get tough.
