I Am the Troll

Jenny Bergman, illustrated by Lotta Geffenblad

On her way to nursery a little girl is suddenly transformed into a big troll. And just like that, the former child scares away her parents, gobbles up her nursery friends and goes to live in the forest. There she can do whatever she wants, like running around naked and squealing like a pig in the forest. But sometimes she remembers her old life, when she used to ride a bike, eat sweets and play with Lego. One day a wizard comes along and asks if the troll wants to be a little girl again. Well, does she?

Author Jenny Bergman collaborates with artist and animator Lotta Geffenblad to produce this thought-provoking text with beautiful watercolours. With humour and a touch of sadness too, this story is about what it is like to be little but also very big at the same time.
