Nobody said anything about a troll under the lawn!
At first they think the troll is cute and funny but things never stay that way. Soon it takes over their whole lives and they realise they should have heeded the warning they found with it:
DO NOT FEED THE TROLL!

What do you think of this book?
Do you like this book? Yes or No, I’d like to ask you a favour? Would you write a review of it? The review could be on your own blog (or maybe as a guest post on a parent’s one), in a school newspaper or on a school’s pupil’s website.
Why do I want you to write a review? Because I want people to read the book (I’m really more interested in readers than sales although if you want to add a review on Amazon that would be nice) and also because I’d like to know what people think of it. That way I can work out whether what to change in any future books (or even whether to write any future books). If you do write one, I’d love to read it so please let me know.
