BOB HARTMAN, author of the best-selling Lion Storyteller Bible,and other titles in the Storyteller series, the highly acclaimed Angels, Angels All Around , and the hilarious Wolf Who Cried Boy.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—This unique retelling of the classic story is intended to be a cautionary tale about bullying, but it falls somewhat flat. Troll hides under the jungle gym and intimidates his classmates into emptying their pockets. This pattern continues until he meets the goats, and various family members refuse to give up their stuff. Ultimately, he is taken to the head teacher's office and later returns all of the stolen treasures, but there is no reconciliation with the other students, and transferring Troll to another school is not the best solution. Readers do not have to consider the consequences for Troll or his relationship with others. A CD with two readings of the story (one includes page-turns and the other "to enjoy with or without the book") is included. Lavish use of white space, clever illustrations, and an unusual typeface create an attractive package, but this is not an essential purchase.—Michele Sealander, Hamburg School, NJ
