Length: 1:15 Mins
Brian Froud continues to explore the fantasy world, this time looking at trolls. His previous books were on faeries (Faeries: Deluxe Collector's Edition and World of Faerie) and goblins (The Goblin Companion).

This is a 144-page hardcover with larger than A4 size pages.

The story is about a troll child who goes on an adventurous journey to collect tales from the different trolls he meets in the otherworld. The stories are interesting, such as a love story gone wrong, and there are also poems and text on the things trolls use.

Brian Froud's sketches and illustrations are beautiful, as usual. The troll creature designs look slightly whimsical yet believable, perhaps with the exception of the trolls with detachable heads.

Additionally, there are the puppets and accessories handmade by Froud's wife Wendy. The craftsmanship is great and they serve to add a different dimension to this mythical world. However, I feel that something is amiss although I can't pinpoint what. Perhaps it's because of the contrast in style. Graphite drawings will always have that mysterious charm that's difficult to duplicate elsewhere.

Nice book for fans of Brain Froud and fantasy art.

Trolls is the lastest journey into the fantastical imaginations of eminent Faerie artists and storytellers Brian and Wendy Froud. If you are unfamiliar with their work, this book is a great introduction to their expansive library. I have only just received my copy, and have only had time to explore the artwork rather than the text, but oh, what art!

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.

TrollsThis is a very big magical adventure! And I mean big, once I found a way to prop this huge and amazing book up so I could comfortably and carefully turn the pages, I was hypnotically drawn deep into the Froud's world of Troll....
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.

I got my copy of Trolls today. It is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. It is a mix of great art there is humor the trolls that pass there head around to change perspective e and sing there anthem I wont spoil that for you I laughed quite hard. there is romance there a sweet story about a troll Maiden who fall for human this book could easily compliment Will Huygen's Gnomes and make one want hang out with trolls the same way one wanted to meet a gnome when they finish reading that book.The books beauty leaves the reader looking at the art and over Brian's wife provides a lot of the art and she is as good at doll making as he is at sketching giving this book a mixed media effect there is know anatomically correct nudity so a child could enjoy the art as much as those who read the book.

I bought this as a gift for someone for Christmas after seeing it at a local bookstore. Amazon's price definitely beat the bookstore's price. This book has gorgeous artwork, exactly what you would expect from Froud. If you are a fan of his work, then this is a great book.

This is such a fun book! I love the beautiful detailed drawings and the stories that go along with them. The Froud's world of Trolls is a diverse one that is full of imagination and intrigue. I also love the pictures of the puppets. This is a great coffee table book.
