Review quote

"Young people stand up for what they believe in ... a fantastically empowering conversation starter." -The Children's Book Review

"Will teach its young readers the valuable skill of persuasive language: ask nicely ... Explain yourself. Show yourself. Be polite ... Good picture books incite such conversations between parent and child and Baby Trolls Get a Bad Rap succeeds brilliantly in this criterion. ... Packs so much characterisation into its three baby trolls, it's an utter joy ... Fun to read, teaches children new language skills, makes important points about listening to every voice, and introduces three fabulous characters for children to make connections with." -The Bookbag

"Introduces three well-spoken young troll babies to young readers who may also feel overlooked, ignored and even disrespected ... You can't help but smile ... Justine Avery's troll babies have personality and pluck ... An ideal selection for storytime ... Perceptive and charming, most highly recommended." -Readers' Favorite

"Fun, fun, FUN! ... Chuckled all the way through the book. Comic timing is everything in a book like this and, I'm happy to say, Justine Avery is excellent at it ... Very sweet, very funny and very, very clever! A wonderfully written, wonderfully illustrated picture book." -The Wishing Shelf Review

"An interesting way to introduce young readers to the concept that everyone matters, no matter how old and in spite of all their differences." -Readers' Favorite

"Lighthearted and fun, the book contains an underlying message promoting equal rights, representation, and awareness for all." -Foreword Reviews

"Always directed at the reader ... Filled with detail, color, and humor that keeps the reader wanting more ... [the baby trolls] don't demand, they request ... Will help young readers themselves to learn politeness and respect." -Readers' Favorite

"Parents who look for picture books with a message about understanding and acceptance will find plenty to talk about with their young ones ... Compelling, and fun ... An early message about the significance of youth and how to be recognized, represented, and respected ... [a] gentle story powered by a strong message." -Midwest Book Review
