Trolls Hardcover – September 1, 2012
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

This is a large book, so the artwork is lush and achingly beautiful. I found myself oohing and aaahing over almost every page. The artwork features Brian's sketches and full-color paintings of trolls in their native habitats. It also blends in seamlessly Wendy's astonishing 3-dimensional figures to tell stories within stories. And that's how the text, as far as I have skimmed, compliments the artwork--by telling the story of a troll child who is on a quest to gather tales "for the asking, the giving, and the keeping." Along the way, you will be told the tales of The Troll Bride, and The Tale of Feathers: The Bad Troll, and The Tale of Stone: The Pride of Anhold Honeybag. Many stories await. This book proves to be not only a celebration of fantastical art, but also a celebration of the power of stories. Also featured in the text are insights into the customs of behaviours of the trolls themselves.
If you are well-versed in the Froud's artwork, then you will find tons of new work here to keep you happy for a long time to come.
complete with visions, magical stories, myths and archeology, and the secrets of this other,other world.
The detail and artistry is astonishing and constantly amazing....I couldn't put it down. Wendy Froud's beautiful writing, telling the tales the troll child collects, is exquisite!
The Troll Bride was a particular favorite!
We need more magic like this in the world!
Jim Henson, who they say in the foreword had discussed the idea of Trolls as a film project years ago, would be very, very delighted.
