Synopsis

Troll Wood by Kathryn Cave

This is Troll Wood. No one goes there. Will you? We will. And they did. A family in need of a new home find themselves in the mysterious Troll Wood and forced to take shelter there. But within the wood they find a world of unpicked flowers, uneaten fruits and unexplored paths, just waiting to be discovered. Can you see the trolls in Troll Wood? And will you join them there? An enchanting picture book about dealing with change and overcoming obstacles, by the award-winning author of Something Else and brought vividly to life by Paul Hess's whimsical illustrations.
