Every day, Oliver goes to the shops and every day Troll tries to eat him. But Troll finds catching an Oliver is very tricky - he's too fast, too sneaky and too plain clever! It is only when it looks like Troll has given up and Oliver celebrates winning that... CHOMP! He gets eaten! Unfortunately for Troll, but fortunately for olivers everywhere, olivers don't taste very nice. So he spits him out and discovers that this Oliver is an excellent baker - and ALL trolls love cakes!

This book was funny with lots of very funny pictures. The Oliver sang lots of silly rhymes and the ending was surprising. I like troll because he likes cakes just like me.

I really enjoyed this week - it's so funny that the troll spends all his time trying to catch Oliver but when he finally does he realises how bad he tastes!

It's a funny book about a troll and a little boy who he can't ever seem to catch.
