This new take on trolls is written by a master poet and will appeal to children aged 3-7 with its funny and imaginative rhymes. The inventive poetry is complemented throughout with full-colour illustrations which bring the naughty, adventurous trolls to life.

Synopsis

Here Come the Trolls by Ron Butlin

Through gaps in the roof we didn't repair through cracks in the walls we pretended weren't there ...the trolls have come creeping while we were all sleeping. Trolls on your chair, trolls in your bed - is anything worse than a troll on your head? What happens when your house is invaded by trolls - mischievous creatures who do nothing but cause havoc and mayhem? Find out in this zany and charming book which tells you how to get rid of them for good and make your house a troll-free zone!

Reviews

'With its gentle rhyming and rolling rhythm, this has a retro feel that seems to evoke both Dr Seuss and Maurice Sendak at the same time. Naughty, rather than nasty; magical rather than monstrous' - Vicky Allan, The Herald
