The Troll longs for a juicy goat to eat -- but he's stuck with boring old fish for supper. Bother! Meanwhile, Hank Chief and his pirate crew love fish, but without a decent recipe their slimy, soggy dinner is even worse. If only they could find their buried treasure and pay for a ship's cook ...but it seems they've sailed to the wrong island. Again. Watch the fun unfold as two very different worlds collide in a gloriously comic story from the creators of the highly acclaimed TYRANNOSAURUS DRIP.

The Troll by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts is a children's story about a troll and some pirates. The troll in this story is based on the troll from the Three Billy Goats Gruff fairy tale. However, in this story, no goats ever cross the troll's bridge and he is forced to survive on fish that he catches from the river. He does encounter, in turn, a spider, a mouse and a rabbit, each of whom convince the troll not to eat them by telling him that he should try a bridge further down the river that is more suitable for capturing goats. Meanwhile, the pirate captain Hank Chief and his crew (Peg Polkadot, Ben Buckle and Pete Patch) are searching for the treasure that is marked on their map, but are unable to locate the correct island. The pirates also display very poor culinary skills. Eventually, the pirates and the troll are thrown together, and the troll becomes the pirates' chef
