This is a very nice story with an intelligent and quick-thinking protagonist. Troll legend has been change a little. There is no mention of the trolls wanting to eat the dog (a la Billy Goats Gruff) but instead to help warm them and act as a pack animal. Their fate is also one I am unfamiliar with. Many stories have trolls turn to stone in the sunlight but this transformation is quite interesting.
The illustrations are just what you expect from Jan Brett; beautiful and packed with detail. Earrings and hair ribbons should be paid attention to as well as the happy hedgehog who invades the trolls' home. A truly delightful story from an author who has written more stories about clothes than you can imagine (The Hat, The Mitten, Armadillo Rodeo, Etc).
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.

You should read Trouble with Trolls. My favorite part is when the trolls jump on the dog and start riding on the dog. My favorite characters are the trolls because they are funny. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Kayaker1204
