Meet Hamilton Troll, a fun-loving friend to the forest creatures and quite a unique little troll.
But Hamilton has a problem, a fear he simply can not control and it is up to Pink Light Sprite to help him resolve his problem.
Follow Hamilton as he takes this exciting journey down the forest path. He will meet new friends that he will always remember and he will in-turn help others when they need him the most.
The sky turns to dark, in the bright of the day,
And rumble and grumble then suddenly give way,
To a blanket of raindrops that fall to the ground,
And flood out his hole, Hamilton could drown!
When this happens Hamilton will run.
He runs to a safe place until it is done.
He leaps over flowers and skips around trees,
‘Till he finds his safe place where he falls to his knees.
A place that he calls the ‘Hide Away Flop’
Where he goes every time the sky tries to drop.
I bought this book for my 8 year old granddaughter - a reluctant reader. I was happily surprised by her reaction. Hamilton captured her imagination as she read and re-read the story aloud, pointing out to me the definition of "transplant" inserted at the bottom of one page. She's anxiously waiting on the next adventure. ~ Janeil A.
