9780062051004: Hey, Pipsqueak!

A troll has taken over the bridge that Jack must cross to deliver his present to the party. "Hey, pipsqueak!" yells the troll. "I'm the boss of this bridge. Nobody crosses unless I say so"--but maybe he'll say so, if Jack gives him the present. Armed only with the toys in the back of his truck, he decides to put up a fight. In the end, Jack outwits the great big bully with an even bigger surprise. Full color.

From Publishers Weekly:

While motoring through the forest, Jack finds a present hidden in the bushes, along with a handy map to a party. Off Jack goes until he runs into trouble with a capital T (that's T for a towering Troll, who is blocking the bridge). A battle of wits ensues as the huge and greedy creature, spying Jack's newfound package, which is wrapped in black-and-white-checked paper, demands a "black-and-white present." Jack counters with clever alternatives, none of which is quite right for Troll. In the end, the resourceful boy cuts his adversary down to size with an amazing troll-shrinking balloon, and continues on his way to the party, which turns out-surprise!-to be for him. Droll watercolors play with the incongruities of scale; for example, Jack's car is sized just for him. The McMullans (Nutcracker Noel; The Noisy Giants' Tea Party) achieve their uniquely nostalgic look by combining an old-fashioned palette with contemporary perspectives. Another feather in the caps of a talented husband-and-wife duo. Ages 3-up.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?A young boy drives his miniature car through the forest and finds a box gift wrapped in black-and-white checked paper that needs to be delivered. Jack takes on the mission, and all goes well until a giant Troll (who looks like a large, bullying boy) blocks his way at the drawbridge and demands a black-and-white present. Jack tries to appease him with a soccer ball and roller skates, but the Troll gets hurt using both. In desperation, the boy offers him a red balloon, promising it will be just right. The Troll is deflated?he shrinks to child size?as he blows it up larger and larger. "So who's the pipsqueak now?" says Jack as he crosses the bridge. The present and party turn out to be surprises for him. The large, colorful watercolor pictures move this simple fantasy along to a satisfying conclusion. The subtle implication that bullies are "full of hot air" could promote an interesting discussion on how to deal with them.?Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT
