What's Vole and Troll About

Publisher Summary

Troll has appropriated rights to the bridge and charges the forest creatures a toll to cross it. Clever Vole has no money, but he does have a silver tongue. Praising Troll’s singing and teaching him new songs affords Vole the opportunity to sneak across the bridge several times. But Troll catches on eventually. Does Vole end up as a tasty casserole in Troll’s bowl?

Familiar songs and movements—from spiders crawling up waterspouts to nodding our head when we’re grumpy and we know it—along with Iza’s hilariously detailed illustrations and a diabolical plotline, create a harmony of storytelling that will elicit giggles and uproarious laughter.

Who Wrote Vole and Troll

author & illustrator
Iza Trapani
Verified creative

I was born in Poland, and immigrated to the U.S. when I was seven. I learned English with the help of a Mother Goose collection which my relatives had given me. Before I understood the words, I was fascinated with the pictures: a woman with a gaggle of kids living in a shoe, a little man jumping over a candlestick, blackbirds flying out of a pie! What did it all mean? Eventually, I learned English, and read many more books, but the nursery rhymes continued to fascinate me. Little did I know then what a big part they would play in my life.Years later, I attained my lifelong dream of making books for children, and most of my titles are extensions of Mother Goose rhymes.

When I’m not writing and illustrating picture books, I enjoy spending time outdoors- hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, skiing, and I was once a rock climbing guide.

Some fun facts: I was a stunt double for an actress in two rock climbing episodes of the soap opera, One Life To Live. I can scale cliffs, but a spider will scare the living daylights out of me! One of my dreams has been to learn to yodel, and I have - well, just a little. I don’t think you’d really want to hear me.
