Bera the One-Headed Troll by Eric Orchard

But when trouble comes to find her, it comes in spades. A human baby has arrived in the realm of the trolls, and nobody knows where it came from, but Bera seems to be the only person who doesn't want it dead. There's nothing to it but to return the adorable little thing to its parents. Like it or not, Bera's gone and found herself a quest. From noted picture book illustrator and graphic novelist (Maddy Kettle) Eric Orchard comes a delightful new fantasy adventure with all the sweetness, spookiness, and satisfaction of your favourite childhood bedtime story.
