About this item
Shrek meets Wimpy Kid in this epically funny tale of a troll trying to figure out how to be more popularIt’s not easy being Zarf. As a troll, he's stuck at the bottom of the middle school hierarchy, way belowthe prince and knights (populars), ogres and giants (jocks), and even the lowly minstrels (band geeks). Plus, trolls aren't exactly known for their brain power or cool demeanor. But it gets worse. When the king disappears and Zarf's archenemy, the prince, ascends the throne, he makes Zarf's life even more miserable. And so it is that Zarf and his two sidekicks (a neurotic, mutton-obsessed pig and the not-funny son of the court jester) set out to find the missing king as well as their way to middle school heroism. (Okay, the heroism part might be wishful thinking.)The first book in this brilliant new illustrated series from comics creator Rob Harrell has the perfect mix of real world and fairy tale.
