    I am not familiar with Julia Donaldson and her first hand impact on her audiences, though very familiar with her popularity I am a grandmother and children s literature illustration student, and collecting books for my granddaughter s first visit from a far I chose Tyrannosaurus Drip as she is into dinosaurs and The Troll , both illustrated by David Roberts Tinder , Sally Gardner s Wings and Co mysteries, Wind in the Willows of whom I am a huge fan So my introduction to Julia Donaldson was through her rhyme in Tyrannosaurus Drip , a quaint, low key story for reading aloud to dinosaur aficionados The Troll was another matter altogether I agree with all that has been said, while adding that first reading out loud as a practice was not a joy there was not enough rhythm and flow in the page turning The story was too jerky, and didn t hang together well enough the illustrations handsomely reflect that fragmentation It is written in the style of a modern crime novel, multi layered, several things going on at the same time, several things to hold in the mind at the same time It s possibly good for training young minds for their future experiences with modern literature television dramas movies as these areas grows and complex In that sense, several readings and lots of discussion are needed to gain the most out of The Troll I nearly returned it to in protest, but will keep it for the future

    This is slightly different from a lot of Julia Donaldson s books, but none the worse for that The illustrations are slightly darker and the story is also aimed at a slightly older audience with pirates and tales of horrible food making the whole thing a little less safe The story is that the Troll lurks beneath his bridge, sick of eating fish and longing for a nice little goat to eat He goes from bridge to bridge, where he eventually sets a trap dispensing with some silly gold things in a box and hiding to catch his dinner In a parallel story some pirates are sick with each others cooking while they search for well, you guessed it, the little gold things that the poor old Troll threw into the sea Finding the treasure chest empty they are about to make the troll walk the plank when they discover he can cook Success he is saved Would the pirates like some nice goat stew No, they like fish My five year old son found the story hysterical, but a very young child may find it a little scary.

    The concept behind this entertaining story from Julia Donaldson with bright, vibrant cartoon ey illustrations from David Roberts features a melding of two stories a traditional troll and bridge saga, and a pirate yarn The Troll is very unhappy at having to eat fish again for his dinner all he longs for is a bit of nice, tasty goat and he s not entirely scrupulous about he sets out to get it The pirates are struggling to find their buried treasure, and ruing the fact that none of them can cookAn entertaining, non rhyming combination of adventure story types that concludes with an uppance well and truly come

    Expect from Julia Donaldson this is easily the worst book I have ever read my 3 year old boy It s very dull and boring Stick to the classics because this rubbish.

    Just brilliant, children s writing and illustration at their very best Two parallel stories pan out until they finally overlap one resolving the other well almost but you ll have to read the book to find out what I mean Great book for teaching about alternative story structures and meanwhile type events Clever stuff.
