Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid J. Portnoy
Three adventures by a pair of mischievous trolls, Grunt and Grouch, occur in this chapter book for emergent readers. Chapters are brief, and include black, gray, and white grinning half-trolls and half-animal creatures. Each section takes place in a different setting: a public swimming pool, an outdoor camping trip, and in their own dwelling during a large family visit. From the very first section the author emphasizes that the trolls have a total disregard for any and all rules of polite society. They enjoy being filthy, playing with dirt and other ugly objects, and enjoy squirting a slimy, green liquid over themselves and anyone close by. Frequent repetition of the word "snot" also appears in many sections. Other trolls and regular people and children are upset by the trolls' rude behavior but it does not appear to bother Grunt and Grouch one bit. Children may think trolls look similar to Sendak's Wild Things. Here, the settings are familiar but the troll's behavior is far from acceptable. Looking at the drawings, Grunt and Grouch appear to be having fun, cavorting loudly and making unpleasant faces and noises. Corderoy, the author, was born in South Wales and travelled to England to become a teacher. Part of the "The Grunt and the Grouch" series. Reviewer: Enid J. Portnoy
