The Great Troll Rescue by Tom Percival

Imagine all your favorite fairy tale characters as children who play together.  This story has Jack, Red, and Rapunzel in it.  They've just welcomed Anansi to the group.  Anansi has a problem.  His family has been turned into trolls and he needs help fixing them!

Sourcebooks Jabberwocky and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 7th.

This is a cute story for young ones.  As they start out on their adventure, Red falls down a cliff and ends up in the middle of a huntsman picnic meal.  He's nice enough and shows her how to get to her group.  But he works for a nasty witch.  Unfortunately, they need something from that nasty witch to help heal Anansi's relatives.

With dragons, magic, other monsters being held captive by the witch (including Anansi's mother) the tale is exciting and fantastic.  It's a good thing that Red has a quick mind or things might have turned out very differently.

This was a fun tale to read and has plenty of action to keep little one's attention.  I bet there will be more in this series, too.  I'll be watching for them.
