I started reading this a couple of chapters at a time to my five-year old niece. I have to confess that I was so involved in the story that I just read it to the end by myself. This is a great adventure story that I would recommend to early primary graders. It also has some great humor for adults (such as fairies are more vicious than ogres--after watching True Blood I can certainly believe that). I was really engaged by the two main characters', an troll and a human female orphan girl, friendship. I hope the author is planning a sequel with their further adventures.
I received this book as a surprise add-on to a Goodreads win of the author's book, The Dinosaur in My Backyard, but this has in no way impacted my review. I'm just happy to get to read a great book that I would never have found on my own.
