Grumbug! by Adam Stower (Children's, Picture book, 10/10E)

June 2015, Templar, 40 pages, Picture book, Review copy 

Content: trolls, a mountain, cake, humour

Oliver and his best friend Troll run a cafe in the woods. They make the BEST cakes - their troll customers would much rather eat cakes than children! One particularly busy day in the cafe, Oliver's sister Dolly disappears, so Oliver and Troll set off to find her. Their search takes them up Munch Mountain, where the biggest, meanest and grumpiest troll in the world lives. Oliver doesn't believe all the scary rumours, but Troll's not so sure ...

Nayu's thoughts
Ah, Oliver and Troll tale. Oliver is as care free and unphased by danger as ever. It's funny seeing so many trolls in one place. The entire story is unpredictable, full of laughs and surprises, especially at the end. Dolly is quite a character, like her brother, and I'm hoping she features in further adventures in what is an entertaining series!
