Who is your favourite character and why? Jim because he is heroic, awkward and brave.
What is your favourite part of the book? honestly all of it. It was all so great :)The heroes are ordinary people but they deal with Trolls, something you do not see every day.
Why is this book better than other books? The sense of humility and the likes of a hero that’s just like you or me ordinary no powers or costume.
Other Comments: The book and the Netflix series are both really good. All children would love the TV series, but I would say tweens and teens from about 12 onwards would read the book as there is a lot of swearing.
