About this title


A Swedish troll emigrates to Kentucky and tries to live there in disguise among the humans, using his magic powder to make butter and luring a pretty girl to his cabin

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Young Troll overhears some people talking about a wonderful place to start a new life. He leaves his native Sweden for America, taking with him a sack of magic powder that makes work easier. He settles down in Kentucky where he tries to farm and find a wife, like the other settlers. He can't resist telling Becky, the young girl who works for him, all about trolls and their powers, which she dismisses as make believe. When she catches him at his magic and brings the townspeople after him, Young Troll retreats to the woods to observe humans from a safe distance again. The realistic watercolors show details of past rural life, although neither they nor the text specifically depict Kentucky. Dodson's part-human, part-animal troll is believably disguised in his scenes with Becky and her father. The book is not an essential purchase, but could be used effectively with such other stories as The Three Billy Goats Gruff , Tomie de Paola's Helga's Dowry (Harcourt, 1977), and Astrid Lindgren's The Tomten (Coward, 1979). --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
