Oliver and his best friend Troll run a café in the woods. They make the BEST cakes - their troll customers would much rather eat cakes than children! One particularly busy day in the café, Oliver's sister Dolly disappears, so Oliver and Troll set off to find her. Their search takes them up Munch Mountain, where the biggest, meanest and grumpiest troll in the world lives. Oliver doesn't believe all the scary rumours, but Troll's not so sure . . .



I thought the blue monster would be grumbug so I had a big surprise when it wasn't him

It was quite funny at the end how Grumbug shared a whole piece of cake with another monster.

It was awesome. Grumbug is so big and green and he can drink a river dry!

Grumbug was a bit funny. He ate a big cake and said Yum at the end of the book.
