Synopsis

Monday's Troll by Jack Prelutsky

Monday's troll is mean and rotten,
Tuesday's troll is misbegotten...

As for Wednesday's troll--and all the others--as soon as you read about them, they will be in your head (and heart) forever.

Once again the collaborators of The Dragons Are Singing Tonight have combined their extraordinary talents to concoct an irresistible collection of trolls, wizards, witches, giants, ogres (and a solitary yeti). No spell is needed for these poems and pictures to enchant the reader. Just open the book! Jack Prelutsky is up to his usual hilarious no good in this new collection of witchy, wizardly, ogreish poems....Among the subjects of these briskly amusing poems is a wizard who rashly makes himself disappear, a seven-century-old apprentice witch....and a family-type ogre....Prelutsky's skill with catchy rhymes and delightfully fiendish subject matter is complemented by Peter Sis's humorously foreboding and cheerfully nonchalant illustrations. Another treat for Prelutsky fans. --Horn Book.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
