about this item
This is a fun twist on an old fairytale called "The Troll with No Heart," about a troll who's hidden his heart, and the seventh son of a king who goes in search of his six brothers. The young man's journey brings him to a mountain, a captive princess, and a terrifying troll. Here the pictures, in graphic novel form, are beautiful, humorous, as well as fanciful in line and color.
