The Trolls have taken over our blog today! But not to worry, even though they are a mischvious bunch they bring you two very fun stories written by Ron Butlin and very amusingly illustrated by James Hutcheson.
Book 1 is Here come THE TROLLS!
Through gaps in the roof we didn’t repair
through cracks in the walls we pretended weren’t there…
…the trolls have come creeping
while we were all sleeping.
Trolls on your chair, trolls in your bed –
is anything worse than a troll on your head?
What happens when your house is invaded by trolls – mischievous creatures who do nothing but cause havoc and mayhem? Find out in this zany and charming book which tells you how to get rid of them for good and make your house a troll-free zone!
Book 2 is Day of THE TROLLS!
It’s the Day of the Trolls: Fart-Fart and all the trolls are back! Join them in the shopping mall where they go wild, causing havoc as they overrun the place. But when they follow sign saying All Trolls – This Way, things turn out very differently to what Flycatcher, Bumscratcher, SnotFace, Squeer and the rest of them expected.
Both books are highly funny! My 3 year old (pictured) chuckled the whole way through both books, especilly with the words FART and SNOT! I found myself chuckling along with her, especilly when the author said that eating drain-slime, slug stew, squid-eyes-on-toast and Rat-on-a-stick was what the Trolls ate, my daughter’s reaction was priceless 🤣
These are fun to read with some great tongue twisters, I did trip myself up a couple of times! But what I love the most about these books is that you also get a FREE downloadable version. This is the first time I have had this with a child’s book, I think it’s a great addition and for the older children that are just starting out reading they can follow along in the book as the narrator reads!
Lily has loved these books, we have to read them both if this is what she has chosen for her bedtime story. She is entertained throughout (She loves the wiggly worms in book 2 and the two random dummies, she asked if those belonged to the Trolls or the worms) these are amongst a few books where she has asked questions about the story or the pictured, I love that these books have engaged her in both ways.
This is definitely a set of books that I will be recommending to my Mummy and Daddy friends.
