What the papers say:
"In Troll Fell Katherine Langrish has unearthed a captivating world. Bleak and captivating. Her style is quirky and hypnotic and her characters are instantly recognizable as someone you know, or someone you wish you didn't." Eoin Colfer "Troll Fell is a joy... a marvellous, magical adventure..." Amanda Craig, The Times "The style is enthralling, and the adventure persuasive and gripping. A juicy read for children." Independent on Sunday "From the opening page... Langrish's power to locate her story in the reader's imagination is reminiscent of Alan Garner." Sunday Telegraph "Atmospheric, with lowering weather, storms and blizzards, luridly imaginative... with nice touches of humour..." Children's Bookseller "Troll Fell, exciting, funny, vividly written and tightly plotted, is steeped in the essence of Scandinavian folklore..." Carousel
