Synopsis

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.

Reviews

This is a gorgeous little graphic novel, with cream, pale orange, and black as the primary colors

these choices establish the otherworldliness of the setting and also reinforce the sleepy, dreamy vibe of a book that takes place almost exclusively at night (the protagonist is a troll, after all). --BCCB, starred review
