Synopsis

The Troll and the Kist o Gowd The Troll in Scots by Julia Donaldson

There wis yince a troll that steyed ablow a brig.(That's jist whaur trolls are meant tae stey.)Meanwhile, awa oot tae sea, there wis some pirates that steyed in a ship. (And that's jist whaur pirates are meant tae stey.)Trolls, they say, are meant tae eat goats, but nae goats cam teeter-totterin ower this troll's wee brig. Sae he ate fush insteid.So begins this hilarious tale of the adventures of a bunch of incompetent pirates who can't cook, and a crabbit auld troll who can. Their lives seem very far apart: the troll, whose favourite dish is goat, tries and fails to eat the creatures crossing various bridges he hides under; the pirates, who like to eat fish, try and fail to find buried treasure. But by a series of coincidences their paths cross - with dramatic consequences!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
