5.0 out of 5 stars A story kids learn by heart, November 11, 2001
This review is from: Trouble with Trolls (Paperback)
Jan Brett is an amazing artist with a pen, and this title was a favorite with my kids when they were small, maybe since it involves a kid outwitting creatures who think they're smarter than she.

Treva apparently takes her dog Tuffi with her everywhere, and on one cold winter day she heads off over Mount Baldy to visit family at the bottom of the other side. Unfortunately, as she heads up the slope with her skis, the trolls hiding in the mountain begin harassing her and her pet. Treva dangles her clothing before the trolls to distract them from Tuffi.

By the time Treva and Tuffi reach Mount Baldy's peak, however, the trolls have grabbed her mittens, her hat, her sweater, her boots--and they still want Tuffi, into the bargain. But Treva tricks the greedy little thieves again--just how must be secret until your kids read the book--and skis down the mountainside with her dog and all her clothes in her arms.

The winter landscapes are especially colorful, but what has become of the trolls when Treva next heads over the mountain in the spring is a complete delight as well.

This is a book that will have your kids turning the pages over and over again, until they themselves can read the story--which they'll have learned by heart.
