Next month we’re incredibly happy to be publishing Troll Stroll – an absolutely wonderful picture book from an exciting new author-illustrator pairing. With a funny rhyming text from Elli Woollard, and beautiful artwork from Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted illustrator David Barrow, this is a clever, imaginative twist on the classic Three Billy Goats Gruff story, with vehicles galore. And today you can take a first look inside the book!
Troll is fed up with eating boring old goats, so off he strolls in search of some tasty children. But the little boy on the bike insists that the four children in the car behind him would be FAR tastier. And – look! – those children in the school bus behind would be yummier still.
But the children in the big digger are looking hungry, too. It’s time for the terrible Troll to make a quick exit!
Here’s a first look inside Troll Stroll:
With a fantastic rhyme throughout, and an unexpected twist ending, this is a great book to read aloud.
Troll Stroll will be in shops in July – and you can pre-order it online today, here.
