A fierce troll challenges a smart little boy in this book filled with funny riddles and rebus-like drawings. “The swift, puckish story and its plucky hero will appeal tremendously, especially to the many children inspired to play toll-bridge by The Three Billy Goats Gruff.”--Publishers Weekly

Patricia Rae Wolff lives in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
Kimberly Bulcken Root lives in rural Pennsylvania.From Booklist:
Ages 4^-7. A classic fairy-tale scenario is updated here. Trigg is a modern little boy in blue jeans and sneakers. But his path to school every day takes him over a bridge possessed by an old-fashioned troll. When the troll demands the customary toll, Trigg decides to outwit him by using riddles. Wolff's text is fluid and playful and filled with riddles that will be familiar to readers. Root's attractive pen-and-watercolor paintings gracefully blend quaint and contemporary elements in an oversize format. A fun choice; kids will enjoy knowing the jokes and laugh when the troll decides to join Trigg at school so he can become smart, too. Leone McDermott
