The Runaway Troll
The Runaway Troll is the sequel to Shadow Forest. It’s called Samuel Blink and the Runaway Troll in America.
Here’s the blurb from the back cover:
One disgusting, filthy troll boy who smells of cabbage. He’s easy to spot as he only has one eyeball, no table manners, and hasn’t had a bath since the last Annual Washday.
He is thought to have ran away after being told he was coming to me, the Betterer, for Itch Water baths and other betterments. He is said to have been trying to reach a human boy called Samuel Blink. So if any of you ever so nice, tidy, well-behaved humans find a horrible looking troll under your bed feel free to deliver him to me at the following address:
It would be nice to
kidnap meet you.
