TROLLHUNTERS

When a book contains a warning for gallbladders, kidnapping and trolls you know you're in for an amusing read. Trollhunters is an entertaining read from start to finish, the result of a wonderful collaboration between cult director Guillermo del Toro and author Daniel Kraus. The book takes a refreshingly different and entertaining look at the gruesome world of trolls and monsters that are often best left under the bed.

Trollhunters tells the story of James Sturges Jr. and his father’s long struggle with the disappearance of his older brother, Jack, snatched up by trolls one fateful summers night; an event that would come to shape his father’s future in more ways than he could ever have imagined. The townspeople of San Bernadino, California don't believe the rumours of trolls, despite a spate of missing children that appear to be feeding the hungry monsters, but there's far more to this tale of trolls, heroism and peril than initially meets the eye.

The story picks up following our fateful hero James and his ongoing struggle with not just the perils of teenage life dealing with classroom battles, but an even darker fate as he discovers that there really are monsters under the bed, and in the kitchen, helping themselves to a batch of peanut butter sandwiches. A delightful light-hearted story of heroism and the otherworldly creatures that go bump in the night, as we see our hero take to a battle unlike any he's faced before.

Illustrated throughout with some wonderfully gruesome artwork by Sean Murray, Trollhunters tells the story of the otherworldly trolls and their ongoing battles alongside our unexpected hero. The end result is an entertaining read for fans of Guillermo del Toro, and a great introduction to the fantasy horror genre for younger readers who will certainly find the tale of humorous fantasy and horror gripping.
