Colin is the main character of the story, who finds himself in a desperate search for his missing Grand. She’s wandered off one night and gone missing. Much to his surprise, he discovers that she’s been kidnapped … by Trolls! This is where it gets complicated for young Colin. Soon enough his younger brother, Sid, goes missing too. The trouble is, who’d believe his story that Trolls live under the house and have a penchant for kidnapping. Would you?
So the adventure moves underground to an amazing place. We soon find that there’s a heap of drama going on in the world of Trolls, which will have a terrible impact on everyone above ground. There’s plenty of action, captures, escapes, and surprises lingering in this story.
In a stroke of genius, Sid had decided to bring along his spy book for reference purposes, in case they were in a jam. It came in very handy and littered the story with comical tips that often had me chuckling as I read. Another character that we meet is Pepper, she’s the mean and grumpy girl from next door, and she was my least favourite character. You’ll need to read it for yourself to see how she deals with the huge chip she has on her shoulder.
In addition to these ones, I seem to have come across lots of Trolls lately, reading Troll Mountain by Matthew Reilly, and watching The Hobbit on DVD. I’m wondering if they really do exist! I really enjoyed this book. It had an action packed climax and a clever twist right at the end.
In a nutshell … Fizz and Peppers is a great read that as I mentioned before, was a pleasant and action filled surprise. There’s a lot more to this one than the cover suggests.
Note: I don’t claim to be a pro-reviewer, I am a reader. My reviews are based on my personal thoughts around the story that the book is trying to tell. I try to focus on the story (which is the reason I read) rather than dissect the book and pass comment on typos, writing style or structure.
Troll Fizz and Peppers is nonstop fun. From the initial adolescent teasing, the dares, the habanero-eating contest, and all the hilarity that came next, the book started off at a nice run and never really let up. What’s even better is when you think you know how the book’s progressing, you’re pretty sure of where the next plot twist might end up taking you, or you figure you have the ending pretty much nailed. In this book, you don’t. Troll Fizz has some of that great, adolescent, darts-in-the-dark, oddball twistiness that really needs to be seen more in Young Adult books.
Everyone in the book is pure genius. As in they’re well-written, with the same quirky goodness that helps propel the story through its bizarre and endless (endlessly fun) tunnel-like plot. Favorites were Sid with his Super Spy Guy utility gear and guide, and Grand with her rambling cleverness, flakiness and bravery.
If you’re a fan of well-written and very cleanly edited books, and if you prefer the color lavender, popping popcorn, delicious cupcakes, thrum bogs, dangerous daycare centers, and a good moral about why people fight each other (and why it’s pretty much pointless), this book will most likely give you a few good chuckles. After that, you’ll be left feeling warm in your heart, and in need of some really good homemade baked goods.
If there’s one tiny bone to pick with the book, it’s that the trolls don’t seem too menacing or dangerous until the very end (around 85% of the way through, when it’s about time for a war), when they suddenly seem very, very dangerous indeed. Perhaps I wanted it all to be sort of fun child’s play, but it took an awfully quick turn for the dark. In the end it turns out just peachy, but for just a few minutes there, the tone of the book changed.
