Seven Ways to Trick a Troll
In seven whimsical, entertaining folktales, children discover trolls’ weaknesses, as well as their own strengths.
Trolls 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—and that’s where these playful folktales come in. Taken from a wide range of historical and international sources, Seven Ways to Trick a Troll will delight and entertain imaginations of all ages.
