Muncle Trogg is a delightful, engaging story about a giant who is a lot smaller than he should be. Muncle is so small he is often mistaken as a 'Smalling' (that's a person to you and I), and he finds it very hard to fit in with his giant friends. He is picked on and ridiculed yet he still tries his little hardest to fit in.
The giants live in Mount Grumble, away from the Smallings, but one day Muncle decides to have a look at these Smallings as he has never seen one before. Muncle is not supposed to be so far away from home and his expedition takes him on a magical journey packed with dragons, giants and Smallings. Will Muncle save the day or will he make the biggest mistake of his tiny little life? This unique and fun tale will be an excellent bedtime read or a great little book to start the budding young reader off on his own.
This book would suit 6-8 year olds but is a fresh and new adventure that can be enjoyed by all the family. It was a pleasure to read and it is lovely to see a well written and well told story that can be read easily. There are many little illustrations throughout the book which add to the flavour of the tale. They are tastefully done and make a nice change to just reading word after word after word. Janet Foxley has left the door open for other Muncle adventures and I can't wait for the next one to arrive.
If you are looking for a pleasant read for your little ones then this would be a great recommendation.
