Hey, Pipsqueak!

Overview

A troll has taken over the bridge that Jack must cross to deliver his present to the party. "Hey, pipsqueak!" yells the troll. "I'm the boss of this bridge. Nobody crosses unless I say so"--but maybe he'll say so, if Jack gives him the present. Armed only with the toys in the back of his truck, he decides to put up a fight. In the end, Jack outwits the great big bully with an even bigger surprise. Full color.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Samita Arora
This story, which is similar to the Three Billy Goats Gruff, is about a boy who finds a note, a present, and a map. The note tells him to get the present safely to a party. He follows the directions to the party but encounters a big Troll along the way. The Troll demands that the boy give him presents before he can drive across the bridge. Our hero gives him a soccer ball and then skates, but they are not what the Troll wants. Finally, the boy outwits the Troll by giving him a balloon to blow up. The Troll blows so hard that he ends up shrinking and the boy is able to cross the bridge. He delivers the present safely to the party-which turns out to be for him. This book has wonderful bright illustrations. It also carries a wonderful message-it does not matter how big and strong you are. It's your mind that counts.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2A young boy drives his miniature car through the forest and finds a box gift wrapped in black-and-white checked paper that needs to be delivered. Jack takes on the mission, and all goes well until a giant Troll (who looks like a large, bullying boy) blocks his way at the drawbridge and demands a black-and-white present. Jack tries to appease him with a soccer ball and roller skates, but the Troll gets hurt using both. In desperation, the boy offers him a red balloon, promising it will be just right. The Troll is deflatedhe shrinks to child sizeas he blows it up larger and larger. ``So who's the pipsqueak now?'' says Jack as he crosses the bridge. The present and party turn out to be surprises for him. The large, colorful watercolor pictures move this simple fantasy along to a satisfying conclusion. The subtle implication that bullies are ``full of hot air'' could promote an interesting discussion on how to deal with them.Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT
