The book that inspired the Netflix original series Trollhunters, from Dreamworks Animation.

"You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They're patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you've paid so much attention to in mirrors? It's delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to make your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful. There are things out there, you see, that don't cower in holes to be captured by us and cooked over our fires. These things have their own ways of trapping their kills, their own fires, their own appetites."

Jim Sturges is your typical teen in suburban San Bernardino-one with an embarrassingly overprotective dad, a best friend named "Tubby" who shares his hatred of all things torturous (like gym class), and a crush on a girl who doesn't know he exists. But everything changes for Jim when a 45-year old mystery resurfaces, threatening the lives of everyone in his seemingly sleepy town. Soon Jim has to team up with a band of unlikely (and some un-human) heroes to battle the monsters he never knew existed.

From the minds of Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus comes a new illustrated novel about the fears that move in unseen places.

This somewhat gory, occasionally violent adventure will be a hit with readers who want their books full of humor and action and light on romance. The well-written, page-turning plot never stops, nor does it turn into standard fairy tale. The characters are intriguing and unique - I especially loved the troll scholar and the best friend who found his inner ninja. The universal themes of friendship and good versus evil are well-developed without being overpowering. All in all, Trollhunters is a great choice for older tweens, be they reluctant readers or avid fans of fantasy and adventure. Read more reviews (and the rest of this one) at!
