Two very different books from an author who attracts readers of all ages and interests. Ulf is a finger-eating troll with razor-sharp teeth whom a resolute Gudrun sorts out once and for all by ...? Well, 6- and 7-year-olds guessed what would happen, although they weren't quite sure how the operation would materialise.
The Merrythought is 9-year-old Nick's chicken wishbone which really does seem to have uncanny powers. This vicar's son learns to think selflessly and matures considerably through his growing sense of responsibility and consideration for others. Neither book should be missed.
