The Lovereading4Kids comment

The latest in in a wonderful series of cautionary tales for modern children from this super-talented duo, Troll Stinks is very funny and also delivers an important message on how not to behave. Two young billy goats have great fun with a mobile phone, taking silly selfies and leaving daft messages for friends. Then they decide to teach the troll under the bridge a lesson and send it some nasty texts. When they go to the troll’s cave though, instead of a big bad troll, they find a tiny one, frightened by their cyberbullying. It’s as witty as Belloc and as much fun to read aloud, and children will absolutely understand the moral of the story too. Brilliant! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Troll Stinks! by Jeanne Willis

Billy Goat and his best friend Cyril are messing about with the farmer's mobile phone, taking selfies and playing games...until they find the number for a troll. Their Grandpa Gruff says trolls are bad, so Billy and Cyril decide to get their own back by sending mean messages. After all, trolls really do stink! Don't they?

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
