Life as a troll is never easy, but Tyson faces more challenges than most. When his mother’s early death leaves him with an embittered father, he finds himself alone, unloved and uneducated. Confronting barrier after barrier, his dream of building his own home comes to life in his imagination and sustains him. Pursuing Thistle Downe, as he names his haven, drives Tyson to succeed both financially and personally and gives him a chance to win the heart of Amelia, a lovely fairy. Tyson’s tale of cheerful determination provides inspiration to overcome social and educational obstacles as well as a welcome escape to a land filled with magical creatures, grand adventure and delicious sticky toffee pudding.
