Hildi and Thom are two devoted trolls who live with their animals, tucked away from the Big People in a Norwegian forest. They enjoy a simple life, in harmony with their surroundings and at peace with the world, until Thom fishes a weed-covered Viking casket out of the fjord. Hor excitig! exclaims Hildi when they break open the lock. Neither realises how valuable the contents are but the stranger who kcks at their door early one morning certainly does. What is his plan? When Thom visits the Big People's town of Bergen to sell the Treasure, t only does he leave Hildi in danger, but he also risks the True Inheritance of all the trolls, which he has vowed to guard with his life. Thom's challenge to the Big Men wins an unexpected ally, but still he has to face a struggle between good and evil. Can gentle Thom protect the Troll Treasure? How does he become a Warrior Troll?
I used to teach all ages - for ages - but it became too serious and rather sensible... I prefer walking my three pygmy goats on leads, feeding them with blackberry brambles and acorns. And making my cats sing. Don't you just love stamping in frozen puddles? The windy top of a high hill? The smell of a garden bonfire? Have you tried eating strawberries with white pepper? And sucking snapped off icicles? Do you love the moon on a deep black night? And rainbow bubbles? I do Do you love listening to, reading or writing stories? Wonderful! So do I.
