My 6-year-old boy loves this series and so do I! The books are about a troll family forced to leave their stinksome cave in Norway and move to a disgustingly clean house in suburban Biddlesden due to the shame brought on to the family by Mr Egbert Troll, who was butted by a fiercesome billy goat. The stories are about how the trolls adjust to their new life living next door to the Priddles (the Piddles as 'Eggy' calls them) and their frequent scrapes. Great characters who are easily voiced while reading aloud. My son loves the silly words they use - very Roald Dahl. I hope others discover these books. A good follow-on if your child has enjoyed Horrid Henry.
