The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fun to read wizard school adventures for Oliver. The auditions for the school play go badly wrong from the beginning. Instead of being cast as a hero, Oliver lands the part of a troll! A gruesome forest troll who will be booed not clapped by the audience. Poor Oliver! He had so wanted to be a hero. But Oliver finds playing the part leads him to a surprising kind of heroism after all. There are lots of other Oliver Moon titles including Oliver Moon and the Spider Spell, Oliver Moon’s Summer Howliday and Oliver Moon and the Monster Mystery.


Oliver Moon and the Troll Trouble by Sue Mongredien

Oliver is thrilled by the prospect of performing in the school play until he's cast as a big, bad, blundering troll. Deciding to make the best of it, he sets to researching his character on the Wizard Wide Web. And, when a guest turns up to opening night, it looks like Oliver's knowledge of trolls is going to be needed for more than just acting.
