The trolls who live on Mount Baldy want a dog. And that’s where Treva’s trouble with trolls begins. When she sets off with her dog, Tuffi, to visit her cousin, the greedy trolls spot Tuffi and try to kidnap him. But Treva is brave and quick-thinking. She outwits one troll after another until she reaches the very top of the mountain, where all five trolls are waiting, and they want the dog!
Set in Sweden, this is the story of a wild little troll who runs away from home because he doesn’t want to do his chores. Rollo tries living with various woodland animals, but he finds out that there is no place like home, and he returns just in time for “the best Christmas ever.”
Christmas is Treva’s favorite time of the year. But this year decorations and presents are mysteriously disappearing. When Treva follows a small creature making off with the Christmas pudding, she discovers two irresistible trolls who want to have Christmas, but don’t understand it. Jan Brett’s exquisite paintings give readers a magical Christmas full of surprises
