Sea of Trolls

Jeffrey Cohen (and his son) are recommending Nancy Farmer's Sea of Trolls for young readers. I haven't read it myself, but I thought I'd pass it along. It sounds like good medievalism for young readers (with a Beowulf re-telling, too!).

  1. You're recommending a Sea of Trolls?! I thought trolls were to be avoided on the internet!


    I will check it out. I am always looking at good youth fiction. While I enjoy a wide range of writing, I sometimes need the quick escape that young reader fiction brings.

    Sometimes I even break out my old "Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks" when Hegel makes my head cramp.
