Description

A laugh-out-loud pirate adventure from the stellar picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and David Roberts.

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.

Watch the fun unfold as two very different worlds collide in The Troll, a gloriously comic story from Julia Donaldson and David Roberts, the creators of the highly acclaimed Tyrannosaurus Drip.

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

Her books include The Flying Bath, Room on the Broom and the modern classic The Gruffalo, which has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over sixty languages.
