Summary

A laugh-out-loud pirate adventure, perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime - or any time at all!

The Troll longs for a juicy goat to eat - but he's stuck with boring old fish for supper. Bother! Meanwhile, Hank Chief and his pirate crew love fish, but without a decent recipe their slimy, soggy dinner is even worse. If only they could find their buried treasure and pay for a ship's cook, but it seems they've sailed to the wrong island. Again.

Join in the fun as two very different worlds collide in The Troll, a gloriously comic story from the stellar picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and David Roberts, the creators of the highly acclaimed Tyrannosaurus Drip. This fantastic audio edition, read by Alex Jennings, features a read-along track and a fun song.

Enjoy other stories by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts: Tyrannosaurus Drip, Jack and the Flumflum Tree, The Flying Bath and The Cook and the King

Great fun for young kids

A Julia Donaldson book that we don’t know!
Both kids (4 & 5) loved this. The songs bring it alive.
