About The Book Do Not Feed The Troll:
When Martin’s family moved house his Dad told him things would be better: he’d have more space to make his models, his sister would have her own bookshelves so she wouldn’t use his ones and Dad would be doing all his beer brewing in the garden.
Nobody said anything about a troll under the lawn!
At first they think the troll is cute and funny but things never stay that way. Soon it takes over their whole lives and they realise they should have heeded the warning they found with it:
DO NOT FEED THE TROLL!
Sample Text From Do Not Feed The Troll
Moving house is supposed to make life better. Dad had said it would make life better because it would be ‘a new start’. It was supposed to be a way to put the last year behind us. It was supposed to be better. It was not better. It was most definitely worse. In fact it couldn’t have been any worse. It started bad and then it went downhill and then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, it went and did.
Dad had said that when we moved we could each have something we really wanted in the new house, to make it more like home. Dad wanted space in the garden to build his brew–house and so he got it, Angie wanted extra shelves for all her books and so she got that and I wanted a three metre long, two metre wide work–surface, suspended on pulleys from the ceiling in my room. I could build my models on it and hoist it up overnight so Dad and Angie didn’t touch them.
I didn’t get what I wanted.
Apparently the ceiling in my room isn’t strong enough or something. I wouldn’t have minded if Dad had even tried to fit one pulley but he just poked his head into the loft, shone his ’phone around for a bit – he didn’t even use a proper torch – and then came back down shaking his head.
Sometimes life is just not fair!
