Very cute! I really enjoyed this children's fantasy. A pumpkin gardening troll leaves her tiny island home to save a human baby from a witch who wants to put it in a recipe. Along the way, Bera, the troll, meets all kinds of creatures, good and bad, as she explores the big wide world. However, she learns there's no place like home and that one doesn't need a hero to save the day but one can do it themselves with just some effort. I loved the artwork. Cute, creepy creatures and wonderful shades of brown keep it atmospheric.
