Attack of the Trolls
on 10 May 2011
Attack of the Trolls isn't my favourite Scream Street book so far, but it's still a great read. I don't actually think 'bad' is a word in Donbavand's vocabulary, as every book in this series is entertaining, funny and chock-full of eye-rolling puns. In this eighth instalment, our young heroes find themselves up against a nasty set of trolls, two of them who go by the names of Little Bennett and Stumper. Little Bennett is huge (ha!) and Stumper has a wooden leg (haha!). See what I mean about the humour? I love it.
On their travels, Luke, Resus and Cleo also encounter giant birds called Nasterns, Berry the zombie and Count Negatov himself. After the events of book #7, Invasion of the Normals, they're now on a quest to return all 6 relics to their owners, starting with Count Negatov's fang. So far things are going as planned, but how will they fare on their next adventure? Read on to find out...
