This exciting story of a cowardly troll, foolwed by a young boy with a lump of cheese, orginated in Scandinavia. Illustrated by Peter Richardson, it is retold by Eliot Humberstone.
Stanley is a kindhearted, popular troll who can reate flowers with a mere touch. When Gnorga, the mean-spirited Queen of the Kingdom of Trolls discovers Stanley’s secret, however, she banishes him to a faraway place where she assumes nothing green can grow – New York City! Taking refuge in Central Park, Stanley befriends two young children, Gus and his baby sister Rosie. The three share wonderful adventures until Gnorga decides to let her mischief-making magic loose in the Big Apple. With its catchy songs, animation wizardy, and all-star voice cast, including award winners Dom DeLuise, Cloris Leachman, and Charles Nelson Reilly, A Troll in Central Park will make smiles bloom on faces of your entire family.
Monday’s troll is mean and rotten,
Tuesday’s troll is misbegotten,
Wednesday’s troll is extra smelly,
Thursday’s has a baggy belly.
Friday’s troll is great and grimy,
Saturday’s is short and slimy –
But Sunday’s troll is crabby, cross,
And full of sour applesauce.
