Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A picture book for kids that love Adventure.
An original and witty version of a traditional tale which shows what happens when two stories get blended into one. The Troll lives under the bridge – which is where he is meant to live. And the pirates are out to sea searching for treasure – which is what they are meant to do. But things get a bit muddled up when the troll goes off in search of a billy goat and accidentally finds the pirates’ treasure. How all gets successfully resolved is brilliantly told in words by Julia Donaldson and in pictures.
