Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013 A troll who doesn’t want to be disgusting and a little girl who doesn’t want to be good and nice are both odd balls in their own world. One day, troll Timothy Limpet and little girl Tabitha Lumpit meet and decide to swap places with hilarious and touching results. Each is happier in their new life but will the swap last?

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
