Seven Ways to Trick a Troll
Trolls! They are huge and ugly and very, very dangerous. But luckily, their brains are no bigger than a walnut, so even small children can trick them. First, though, you need to know their weaknessesâ€”and thatâ€™s where these stories come in. It is helpful to know what a little girl can do when she finds out that trolls hate loud noises. Or how two brothers might make an entire family of horrible trolls burst and turn to stone. Or what a clever little gnome boy does when he discovers that trolls are ever so easily distracted. Helpful, but also great fun, and it doesnâ€™t hurt to be reminded of all the tricks children already know when it comes to overcoming trollsâ€”or other fearsome beings and things. Patience, kindness, courage, and quick thinkingâ€”what works against trolls are the best things about being human. Taken from a wide range of historical and international sources, Seven Ways to Trick a Troll will delight and entertain imaginations of all ages. Hardcover.
