Leaving the farm, he sets off through the woods, helping and befriending the various
Small and furry, the stable troll is a helpful little creature that helps out on the farm on which he lives. But as the family who own the farm grow up and move away, leaving the lazy eldest son to manage the fields and the animals, the troll finds himself overworked and ignored.
Leaving the farm, he sets off through the woods, helping and befriending the various animals that he meets. Unlike the farmer he has left behind, the animals are ready and willing to repay him for his assistance, guiding him and his new friend the wood troll though the forests and mountains and lakes, until they find themselves called back to the farm, where a surprise awaits them.
Ilon Wikland's full colour illustrations add to the charm of this captivating tale.
