    I may have read this booktimes than any other, and it is probably the best book ever written by humans The trolls are tragic figures fated to cede the Earth to humans and billy goats, having become monsters, by necessity, in the face of the inexorable tide of progress Under different circumstances, the trolls might have been perceived as noble socialists and environmentalists, but the Farmer Neils of the world own the land from which grain is produced and billy goats go where billy goa I may have read this booktimes than any other, and it is probably the best book ever written by humans The trolls are tragic figures fated to cede the Earth to humans and billy goats, having become monsters, by necessity, in the face of the inexorable tide of progress Under different circumstances, the trolls might have been perceived as noble socialists and environmentalists, but the Farmer Neils of the world own the land from which grain is produced and billy goats go where billy goats will, knocking over anyone who stands in their way Under this tyranny of progress, a starving mob is a threat to civilization, only a cyclops would try to save a tree and if a man of means says his bear is a pussycat, then a pussycat it is Reading Favorite Tales of Monsters and Trolls, I have to ask myself the question, who are the real monsters The answer might shock you The monsters are us

    I picked this book out to read to my son because it was one of my favorites when I was a little guy But when I started looking through it, I found myself wondering why the hell my mother would have let me read this when I was so little It s still awesome though I just don t recommend it for anybody that s too young and fragile Some of the monsters are kind of creepy, and while the good guys always win in this book, it might be a difficult book for the little ones to make sense of right befor I picked this book out to read to my son because it was one of my favorites when I was a little guy But when I started looking through it, I found myself wondering why the hell my mother would have let me read this when I was so little It s still awesome though I just don t recommend it for anybody that s too young and fragile Some of the monsters are kind of creepy, and while the good guys always win in this book, it might be a difficult book for the little ones to make sense of right before bed

    This was one of my favorite books as a kid It featured a selection of monster and troll stories, illustrated in a kid friendly manner reminiscent of Bruegel the Elder and Hieronymus Bosch.

    Interesting little collection of folkloric stories The illustrations for the first one The Three Billy Goats Gruff are my favorites All the little people running around the illustrations are fantastic The details are just wonderful.The stories are kind of lame and vaguely familiar that s how stories like this work But they re also fun and classic.

    Pity there is no cover art for that is one of the best parts 26 amazing trolls on the cover alone This book has the most incredible illustrations, and was an early childhood favorite The copy I am in love with is illustrated by John Obrien.
